Pure cinematic genius
30 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

Zombie versus ninja is one of the few great hidden gems in the world of cinema today. It exceeds any expectations you may have going into a movie that is called zombie versus ninja. IF YOU ARE A FAN OF KIROSAWA, FELLINI, OR KUBRICK, then thats good for you I am too, but what was I saying about ninja versus zombie is that it is a great work and has single handedly changed the way we think about ninja zombie movies. The influence of this timeless masterpiece is abundantly obvious in such works as ninja zombie gangbangers, gold(to be released later this year), and many of the works of legendary director Grover Cleavland. If you don't like this movie it is because you simply aren't smart enough to understand it.
