More unintentional Ninja comedy!
6 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, time to sit thru another Godfrey Ho/Joseph Lai Ninja movie, with a shaved Richard Harrison. You know a picture is going to be good when Richard shaves for it. Expect the Ninja masks to be pulled down to reveal their face in every battle scene :) And once again, we have caucasian Ninja's with commercially made 'Ninja' headbands, swords that are far too flexible, multi color feathered blow guns, and plenty of disappearing to the sound of a laser zap.

Gordon's master gets owned, and the Black Ninja's take away the Sword of Catastrophe. Legend has it you will be the most powerful Ninja if you kill other master Ninja's with it. I have to say, this is one of Ho/Lai's more intelligent plots, and thats saying a lot! But without missing a beat, this movie will still make no sense at the end, and it really doesn't have to :) This movie has more of those parts with a Red Ninja, sparring by himself in the middle of a soccer field, this time attacking the ground with a triple chained staff, when out of nowhere, a Black Ninja with blue sequin chest-plate and arm covers jumps out and challenges him.

The movie they use to cut & splice in the Ninja parts, is some tacky Indonesian/Chinese movie with a disco soundtrack. A guy in between jobs, that ends up hanging out with the wrong people in the Asian underground, and winds up getting Ninjas involved involuntarily. Plenty of British overdubs for all the voices, hilarious.

Basically, if you are aware of the treasure of Godfrey Ho/Joseph Lai productions, you will definitely love this movie as well.

Definitely worth buying :)
