This movie is two things: 1)Fun, and 2) entertaining.
It is what it is, a cute parody of action and exploitation films. The girls are sexy, the plot is silly, the nudity is brief (and does not involve the 3 main girls).
George Takei's performance as their sensei is particularly good.
Ninja Cheerleaders is fun and light and just the thing if that's what you're looking for.
Watch out for the similarly named Cheerleader Ninjas, which is not nearly as good.
*Includes a making-of documentary and a trailer.
*The movie has a fair amount of action, comedy (although nothing really hilarious), and drama.
*Photography is good. Editing style is neat, including some funky transitions (reminds me a little bit of the "Charlie's Angels" movies).
*Characters are not bad; they seem to be well-acted. Writing is not bad.
The Bad Things
*Story line is quite thin (not that it really matters).
*Not for kids. Contains nudity and swearing (this film is unrated).
The Questionable Things
*DVD video and sound quality are just okay.
*Includes some cliches, especially with the mobsters. There are also some really cheesy scenes and lines throughout. I'm sure some parts are horribly inaccurate or irrational. Don't expect anything too intelligent.
So who wouldn't want to see a trio of hot young high-school-senoir-cheerleaders who can beat people up? Add in a little bit of drama, comedy, gratuitous nudity in the transitions, and a number of stripping scenes, and what do we get? A low-rate film that succeeds at being a guilty pleasure. It is mindless entertainment; nothing more and nothing less. If you're not into that sort of thing, watch "Charlie's Angels" instead. Still not into that sort of thing, then you seriously shouldn't even be here. But if this is your sort of thing, give it a try, for it is generally well-made.
First things first, a pet peeve of mine is when strippers in movies never get naked. It sort of defeats the purpose. Sorry, my macho inner child is coming out. I could forgive this if they cheered more or were ninjas more. Nope we the viewers do not get that either. Instead we are given some lame subplot about how these girls need to save money so they can all go to the same college together. And the conflicts of these girls personalities play out like a bad soap opera. And when we actually do see some fighting, it is lackluster.
Now there is some good news, yet it is tainted with bad news. George Takei and Michael Paré are both in this flick but are sadly underused. I believe giving them bigger roles and/or more purpose it could have elevated this film. At the end of the day, this movie tries awfully hard to be a cult classic and it is just......sucks.
