Revenge of the 80's: Sho Kosugi's Cannon films!
7 November 2004 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Revenge of the Ninja (1983) was the second film in the "Ninja" series. This time Sho Kosugi is the good guy (ya!) and the Caucasians are the evil villains (Ya-ya!) Sho tangles with the mob over the usual scheme (drugs what else). The mob don't take too kindly to Japanese people but they picked the wrong guy to tangle with. Sho goes into action when his family's endangered. Using his skills in the ways of a ninja, Sho grabs his sword and stars and lays waste to the local mafia.

A better film than the first one. Although Sho Kosugi acts with all the emotion of a wooden Indian, he's one bad dude and is very credible as a hero. A fun action film filled with enough cheese and sleaze to entertaining fans of this genre. Followed by the weird and strange Ninja III: The Domination starring a very hot Lucinda Dickey!!

Recommended for Sho Kosugi fans and Cannon Film buffs. A film company that's sadly missed.

B+
