Enter the Ninja (1982)

26 December 2011 12:43 PM, PST | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Directed by: Menahem Golan

Written by: Dick Desmond, Mike Stone

Cast: Franco Nero, Susan George, Sho Kosugi, Alex Courtney, Christopher George

The Cannon Group struck gold with its first martial arts film, 1981's Enter the Ninja. Though Western audiences had seen ninjas before, most notably in the 1967 James Bond film You Only Live Twice, this movie changed how these shadow warriors were portrayed on the screen.

Transplanting martial arts mayhem into a gunslinger plotline, the ninja gained near-superhuman abilities and a more heroic disposition. The resulting film was successful enough for Cannon to launch two franchises (Enter the Ninja and American Ninja) and embedded the art of Ninjutsu into American pop culture.

The film opens as Westerner Cole (Franco Nero) is completing his final test in Ninjutsu, thus earning the right to practice and teach the art. But Hasegawa (Sho Kosugi), a high-ranking ninja in the dojo, isn't happy with »

This may sound like utter bullshit to a lot of you out there, but I swear that the following anecdote is 100% true. Pinky swear! You see, I had a very unusual dream not too long ago, one that featured a gas station/video store from my childhood.

On the wall, next to scores of weird titles that may or may not exist, was a copy of “Ninja III: The Domination”, a movie I haven’t thought about in 20 years, at the very least.

Ninja III: The Domination

Stars: Lucinda Dickey, Sho Kosugi, Jordan Bennett, David Chung, Dale Ishimoto, James Hong | Written by James R. Silke | Directed by Sam Firstenberg

After the body of a sexy bouffant-haired telephone maintenance engineer – who is also and aerobics instructor on the side – is possessed by the spirit of an evil ninja, she begins systematically killing (using her new-found ninja skills of course) the officers responsible for the ninja’s death and can only be stopped by another ninja!

When I found out the Ninja lll: The Domination was available to stream via LOVEFiLM’s Playstation 3 service I knew I was on to a winner, what I didn’t bargain on was the Psn network going down mid-viewing, so thank god it came back on yesterday and I could finish my Ninja lll fix! One of the campest, yet coolest, of the 80s ninja movies, Ninja lll mixes »
