Overall, 'Ninja Blacklist' is an enjoyable, hilarious film!
11 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

'Hei Ming Chan', also known as 'Ninja Blacklist', is definitely one of my ten favorite films of all time! Although it appears to be a martial arts "action/drama" flick, it ends up being more of a comedy! As you will quickly ascertain when you watch 'N.B.', the plot is simple. In order to avoid spoilers, I won't discuss it here. Instead, I will focus on the themes and merits of the movie.

Many of the fight scenes in 'Ninja Blacklist' are just plain funny since they are overly dramatic and lack realism. Likewise, the acting, production and English dubbing are frequently sub-par and, consequently, hilarious!

Also, the apparel of the characters and soundtrack to the movie are humorous. The attire ranges from comically colorful to downright gaudy! Similarly, the music is mostly a comical mixture of seventies-era funk and porn groove! I had mixed feelings on the funky, groovy tunes, but I did enjoy the traditional (presumably) Chinese song at the very end of the movie.

Although 'Ninja Blacklist' is generally hilarious, it possesses additional merit by virtue of a few sincere, emotional scenes. Another virtue of the film is that it allows us to catch an enjoyable glimpse of urban Asia (presumably Hong Kong) during the early nineteen seventies. Since the movie takes place in a westernized portion of Asia, some of the locales look similar to those found in Western Europe or North America. Other settings, however, are rather exotic. The fact that the viewer can absorb him or herself in these foreign, exciting locations adds further value to the film.

Overall, 'Ninja Blacklist' is, in my humble opinion, a comical and enjoyable movie. If you are a serious martial arts fan in search of intense, brutal action, you should definitely look elsewhere! On the other hand, if you adore cheese and comedy, give this flick a try! I hope that you enjoy 'Ninja Blacklist' as much as I did!

Best regards,
