no Bruce lee no ninjas
28 September 2006 | by (Toronto Canada) – See all my reviews

Believe it or not Bruce Lee vs. Ninja in fact does not only not star Bruce lee it doesn't even star any ninjas! So if it doesn't have Bruce lee or ninjas than what does it have? Well...there is a guy with a kitten on his shoulder and a few guys with white sacs on their heads. I know that doesn't sound too impressive and it isn't (unless your a cat enthusiast like me) but this movie does star the legendary Leigh lo as the villain and features the adequate kung fu of Bruce Le.

I'm not even going to try to explain the plot to you because I don't remember what the hell was happening but I do remember the fighting to be entertaining and plentiful. Bruce Le gets a lot of bad press because people get angry once they realize the movie they rented didn't actually star Bruce lee, but Bruce Le really has pretty good kung fu and was a decent fight choreographer. Of course his acting is dreadful but that's part of his charm.

My main criticism for this movie is: the box art for the DVD has a big picture of Bruce Le angrily firing an M16 assault rifle but he never has an assault rifle in the movie! WTF! Bruce Le shooting ninjas with an M16, now that would be entertainment!
