Quite Possibly the Best Film of the 20th Century
21 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Imagine a movie that took the worst clichés of 70's gangster movies, 70's kung fu movies, 70's porn, 70's cop movies, and Power Rangers, and rolled all into one absurd mess that looked as though it had been scripted by a kindergartener. This movie was easily ten times worse than that. That being said, this is every reason to see it. From the opening scene on, I don't think I stopped laughing once. Nothing made any sense, there was not a transition to be found in the movie, and the number of rape scenes per girl (5 rape scenes, only two females in the entire movie) was quite staggering. I pulled "The Super Ninja" off the rental shelf expecting to watch a hilariously bad movie, but nothing prepared me for the jaw-droppingly awful spectacle that was the Super Ninja. It was amazing.
