This movie is bad.
Colin
Some great camara work, awesome choreography, very nice action scenes, a good rivalry and the story isn't half bad.

Lots of blood but not excessive like ninja assassin.

This review will be broken down into two sections: 1) The quality of the movie itself, and 2) The BD Disc quality.

First up, the film itself:

Plot (WARNING, MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!)

The time is present day, and somewhere in a rural region of Japan, a dojo carries on the tradition of the Koga Ninja by training students in the ninja arts. The head of the school, called the Soke, is nearing retirement age and must choose his successor. His top two students are fierce rivals and both are leading candidates to inherit the title of Soke. However, before the Soke can appoint his successor, one of the top two students disgraces himself in a training duel against his rival and is banished from the school. Predictably, the banished student becomes a freelance assassin, and we see him employ his ninja skills to deadly effect in a very cool assassination sequence.

We soon learn that the Soke is the keeper of some ancient Koga weapons which, legend has it, grants the wielder extraordinary abilities. The banished ninja comes calling to claim the weapons, but only after they've been shipped elsewhere for safekeeping. A vicious battle ensues between the bansihed ninja and the Soke, and at the conclusion of this battle, the chase is on for the Koga weapons, with the film culminating in a showdown between, you guessed it, the two rival ninja students. In this climactic battle, only one survives.

As an added bonus, the beautiful daughter of the Soke is thrown into the mix, but sadly, she serves as little more than window dressing. While she demonstrates some ninja skills, she is mostly helpless in a fight and is relegated to the role of damsel in distress more often than not, despite having trained all her life in the ninja arts.

A westerner named Casey, studying Ninjutsu in Japan, is asked by the Sensei to return to New York to protect the legendary Yoroi Bitsu, an armored chest that contains the weapons of the last Koga Ninja, to prevent it from falling into the hands of a dangerous Yakuza. Scott Atkins delivers the goods big time as the hero ninja Casey further cementing him as a go to action guy. The moves this guy can do are out of this world. The story is pretty basic. An adopted American taken in and raised as a ninja. The fight scenes for the most part are beautifully done. Yes there are some cheesy lines, but that is part of the fun of these movies. I recommend you watch it.

There has been a modest revival in Ninja films in the last year, with Ninja Assassin [DVD] [2009] triggering an inevitable wave of DTV low-budget entries into the somewhat anaemic Ninja action movie sub-genre. Ninja follows hot on the heels of the Casper "I was in Starship Troopers once" Van Dien vehicle, Mask of the Ninja- a movie that has almost nothing going for it. Mask of the Ninja stumbles and splutters between poorly executed fight scenes, as Van Dien and his co-stars embarrassedly mumble their way through atrocious dialogue; add to the mix awful Seven [DVD] -style editing and poor lighting, and you have a film that isn't worth two hours of your life.

Ninja is a much better film. While not quite harking back to the Ninja genre's giddy, exploitation heights ( for instance Revenge of the Ninja [DVD] [1983] or American Ninja [DVD] [1985]), the director Isaac Florentine wisely realizes the limitations of his budget, and avoids the temptation of Bourne shaky-cam, while firmly training his camera on star Scott Adkins, who is quite simply phenomenal. Adkins brings a physicality to the role that is reminiscent of Jason Statham in The Transporter/Transporter 2, with the added bonus of being able to do some crazy Tony Jaa-style acrobatics. While the plot, acting, lighting, and score are all barely perfunctory, the fight choreography elevates this movie to low budget, trashy, greatness.

I am a huge Martial Arts fan so for me going into any "NINJA" film you have to expect that the plot will be the same, the acting will be the same and hope for good fight scenes. This film delivers! Awesome fight scenes and choreography were shot very well. I was very impressed with the action overall. Hey, it is a "NINJA" film so it does not have to be realistic which is what is great about these films. Kind of reminded me of The Perfect Weapon combined with Revenge of the Ninja. Definitely worth checking out and perhaps purchasing as it is very inexpensive.

I looked at this movie thinking that it would be just another kung fu movie but i felt i was indeed wrong. compared to ninja assassin this movie lives up to its title and the action is indeed greatly appreciated. it has a nice old kung fu movie theme with modern action and value. I feel anyone that like Ninja Assassin would love this movie.

Even though this is a B-rated movie, the action was very good. If you're into action and ninja movies, this is the one to have.

I am appalled by the negative reviews of this movie. Compared to Ninja Assassin, a big budget, over hyped movie, and over rated in amazon stars, this one, is better in many ways.
Ok so the story may be very typical. I used to play action figues as a child and would conjure up the same story, rival pupils, jealosy, and the love of his beautiful daughter..... anyways, this move on blu ray is sleek, fast paced (boy was ninja assassin sloooowww) , and down right badass. No excessive (unrealistic) blood like ninja assassin--although it was sweet, but they show you what it would really look like when someone gets chopped up by kitana. Oh and let me say the arsenal used is so sick!!

This movie had be out of my seat at least 4 times in excitement, all the while i am saying to myself how under the radar this movie was and how overly blown away i was by its production value. Sure there are no superstars, but the acting is far from terrible. Besides, its all about the action here.
I can confidently say this is the best action movie of 2010 so far and maybe even 2009 and beyond... definately worth $17 for the blu ray.
