A classic
28 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Revenge Of The Ninja is a classic 80's ninja movie, I grew up watching this movie and other crap ninja movies and I would always come back to this one. You always knew when you rented an action movie which started with the Cannon logo on screen or was a ' Golan / Globus production ' you were going to be entertained. Yes, the acting is dreadful and the plot could have been written by a 14 year old, but its entertaining. The fight scenes at the time were amazing, baring in mind that action flicks back then did not rely on CGI effects. The action was also fairly brutal, as far as I am aware all UK VHS versions were heavily cut as the film was released around the same time the BBFC appeared and were censor happy on anything involving ninja stars and nunchakus etc. I can understand why someone watching it now who has never seen it before would find the film 100% crapola, but if you remember this film fondly from your childhood then make sure you watch it now, its just as good now as it was back then. Make sure you get your hands on the region 1 DVD version as it is uncut and has a good few extra minutes of violent action which was snipped from the uk video versions.
