Not only did Sho Kosugi play The Black Ninja in the film, but at the beginning he also plays one of the red ninjas. It is quite obvious in a two-shot of two red ninjas standing next to the pond; Sho is the red ninja on the right, which is evident by his distinct eyes and the accompanying black eyeliner. See more »
In the opening fight sequence the black ninja jumps off the cliff right after the white ninja has done the same. They are both wearing tabi on their feet. When we see the black ninja swimming, his feet are bare. See more »
So who are you going to kill next, Mr. Ninja?
My friend, a ninja doesn't kill. He eliminates and only for defensive purposes.

Enter the Ninja (1981) was the first of several "Ninja" films produced by Cannon starring or co-starring Japanese sensation Sho Kosugi. But the star of the first "Ninja" film was legendary tough guy Franco Nero. Sadly not even Mr. Nero or Sho Kosugi couldn't make this film watchable. When you have two bad dudes in an action film and it's neither watchable or fun, somethings amiss. But I digress. Skip this chapter and watch the next films in the series. They're more interesting and a whole lot of fun.
Next is Revenge of the Ninja. Instead of playing the "evil oriental" (I use that term tongue in cheek mind you). He's the star! Strange for a western film. Watch that one instead.
Not recommended except for die hard Sho Kosugi fans or Cannon film buffs.
