Great sequel
2 August 2008 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

Now this part (personaly my favorite) takes itself more seriously. The enemies looks really dangerous this time not like in the third part where ninjas appeared so weak that anybody could handle them five in one time. This part is more violent than the first three so it's kinda raises an intensity. Maybe it gets sometimes boring but only for a short time. The fighting scenes are much better (especially David Bradley fighting scenes) and the plot is good enough. This time the movie has much more colorful characters so it makes the movie even better. David Bradleys acting skills apparently get much better in this film and i disagree with those who says he can't act. This movie is truly a gift for ninja fans.
