Important to know: "Zombie vs. Ninja" aka. "Zombie Rival the Ninja Super Master".
9 December 2005 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Excellent fights, the speed and the coordination of the last fights could rival some of those made by Bruce lee. Although the sense of humour in this movie at times is pretty grotesque, it was for me an interesting relief, from some of the lame standards of the general American action movie, which in my eyes are often a little bit to self glorifying. The "forest" ninja movie: Well, a couple of good scenes, but still not nearly as the skillful kung-fu of the "undertaker"! One wonders why anyone would think, it was a good idea too add this second movie within the movie (consequently cutting out some most likely very interesting parts of the Asian movie). The "forest" ninja story is of course pretty hard to follow, because it's difficult to distinguish between the outfits of the actors. This I could read that Kolchak25 had some problems with. The way to distinguish the rivalling sides in the "forest" is NOT by looking whether the head bands spell "ninja" or "nin ja", since the supposedly evil side both wear bands with "ninja" and "nin ja". For example the right hand of the evil ninja boss (which fights our ninja hero the second last fight in the forest-part) wears a band which spells "ninja" as do our hero. The only way to tell apart is to look at the colour of the head bands. The good guy is the only one who wears the orange colour band. This is very important to know if you are to make any sense of this movie.
