Tongan Ninja is a 2002 full length kung-fu action-comedy directed by Jason Stutter and filmed in New Zealand. The film has received recent notoriety for co-starring and being co-written by Jemaine Clement, star of the HBO comedy Flight of the Conchords. The movie is a parody of English-dubbed martial arts films, with a few other popular films and the plot is taken from Way of the Dragon. It also features songs written by Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie - also from the Flight of the Conchords. A young child is stranded in Tonga when his plane crashes and his father is eaten by a fish. He trains in a dojo till he becomes the Tongan Ninja. The Tongan Ninja is dispatched to the island nation of New Zealand in order to help a brother of his master with his floundering Chinese restaurant. But the mysterious Mister Big stands in the eatery's way as he sends numerous villains such as Knife Man, Gun Man, and the super-sexy Action Fighter who may know a lot about the hero.

After watching Flight of the Conchords, I thought I would give this a try. Jemaine Clement was painful to watch in this... maybe one funny scene in the entire movie. Read morePublished on August 25, 2008 by J. Lin
