Now, this is bad!
3 September 2008 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Ninja Killer is apparently a Hong Kong produced action movie about '70s gangsters who import fake antiquities. Got nothing whatsoever to do with ninjas, that's for sure. The movie is dubbed in English (and not too badly, actually), but the main character, a cop, is some white dude

  • can't find his name. Anyway, this movie is incredibly boring and bad.


It features enormously long sequences of people walking, running and frolicking at the beach - scenes with no story-advancing function.

The story itself, and the characters, are equally meaningless. Bolo Yeung has some nice moves, but he's apparently just some sissy who keeps getting his ass kicked - enough to make one go "huh?" Bolo is supposed to be cooler than that.

I was puzzled as to why the main character starts an affair with the Chinese girl since he's happily married (hm, on second thought, maybe that was just his sister that he was living with) - but I guess it was so that he'd still have a woman after his wife got killed. Hong Kong script logic? I dunno.

The fights in general were pretty bad, but I have to admit the long one on the roof at the end wasn't too bad. Still, not much of anything to get excited about here, believe me.

Oh, one thing, though: the soundtrack! Very sprightly, filled with loud '70s pop-versions of classical favorites, incl. Bolero, Albinoni's Adagio, etc. That was actually quite fun. Couldn't save the movie from being a complete yawn-fest, though.

My rating: 2 out of 10.
