Storyline

The body of a sexy aerobics instructor is invaded by the evil spirit of a dying ninja. At first, changes in her behavior is limited to having strange interactions with an arcade game, doing sexy things with V8 juice, and being attracted to an unusually hairy police officer. But soon enough, she's systematically killing, ninja-style, the officers responsible for the ninja's death, and can only be stopped by another ninja! Written by Brian J. Wright <bjwright@acs.ucalgary.ca>

Secord: You know? I am sick and tired about hearing how you don't like cops, cause I'm gonna tell you something Ms. Independence. I like being a cop. And if you don't want to go out with me just because I'm a cop, then the hell with you lady!

Brilliant trash!
21 October 2002 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Sam Firstenberg's "Ninja 3:The Domination" mixes martial arts with "The Exorcist" like horror.The horror elements thrown on screen are simply laughable,but the film works as a mindless action/martial arts flick.The fight scenes are well-choreographed and exciting,and the film is never boring.So forget stupid dialogue,lame acting and annoying soundtrack-grab some beer and check this one out!Highly recommended!
