One of the Best
18 March 2004 | by (Howell Michigan) – See all my reviews

When it comes to Ninja movies, this one is one of the BEST!. Most Ninja movies are terrible. This one however, tries to show the ninja as being a regular man that has endured rigorous training in order to heighten his mental and physical prowess, allowing him to perform astounding feats. There is no supernatural magic here. No flipping up 20 feet in the air to land on a roof. This seems to be the closest you can get to the actual thing. And it's still amazing to watch. HE DOESN'T EVEN CARRY A SWORD ON HIS BACK.
