Unintentionally one of the funniest movies ever made.
As soon as i saw this movie's crude cover-art and oversize box I knew there was something special about it. After picking it up and reading the plot summary which read something like "an army of evil purple ninjas do battle with sadistic yellow ninja to stop an assassination plot", I eagerly handed over the dollar it cost me to buy it. From the very first scene full of bad voice dubbing and overacting and on through the movie which spliced together with unintentional comedic brilliance a cheap Asian action movie and the adolescent ninja musings of lead actor Stuart Smith and co., I was awed, even inspired by its tacked-on audacity. As soon as there's a point in the movie absurd enough to insert an out of left field ninja fight scene, here come the ninjas agreeing to a fight and then disappearing only to reappear in techni-color ninja outfits that look like they were bought in the children's halloween costume aisle at k-mart. Then follows slo-mo shots of our "ninjas" chucking cymbals and surikens at each other where ultimately one color of ninja must die so the other can do a back flip into oblivion. This production co. has put out a plethora of similar tack-on ninja flicks that are equally absurd and hilarious, of which I have seen many. These movies embody the true spirit of the cult website realultimatepower.com. Much praise to visionary mavericks such as these and film-maker Andy Sidaris for spawning a new genre: Action movies so awful they are hilarious.
