I think, number four in this series is a bit too violent. Also, I mean, does the gang Joe hooks up with have to look so much like in "Mad Max"? And couldn't he, being like the greatest martial artist in the world, perhaps have applied his talents better at the peace movement? Though I like the series, I don't understand why they have cut down on the Ninjutsu and put so much emphasis on telling a complex story. Surely, we watch a movie like this to watch great techniques. Anyway, this series is very good when it comes to showing actual techniques, except that Ninjutsu does not have so many high-kicks that they perform. That looks more like kick-boxing, although, of course, high kicks can be effective in certain situations. Anyway, I think all of the five movies are worth seeing, but it is somewhat a pity that they are not even better.
