Goofs

The throwing stars Braden uses to kill the one-eyed informant with change from the time he throws them to the time they hit the guy. When the one-eyed informant first gets struck with the Star shuriken, in the next shot, you see Caifano stop walking and look back at what happened. Then when you see the one-eyed informant fall into the water fountain, you see Caifano walking again down the steps to his Limo, like he never look back in the first place. Then Caifano & his henchmen, plus other onlookers go over to the commotion. When Caifano's henchman picks up the body of the one eyed informant, his left eye is bulging out. But after he says "What the shit is this?" his eye is back to normal formation. See more »

The Ultimate Kosugi Ego-Fest!
14 August 1998 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

One of the most unintentionally hilarious-yet-entertaining movies to come out of the 80's (unlike Ninja 3: the Domination). Sho Kosugi indulges his passion for martial arts and making his family the centerpiece of his own movies. The only thing that redeems this movie is some truly spectacular martial arts/ninjitsu sequences. Say what you will about Kosugi - he could choreograph a fight sequence like nobody else this side of Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan. Now, if we could just lose the cute Kosugi kid...
