Trivia

The film appears to be an unofficial sequel to the earlier ninja movie Sakura Killers or is at least set in the same universe. Both films feature the eponymous Sakura organisation, both feature ninjas and the voice of Gregory Snegoff can be heard in both films: as Master Sugiyama in Sakura Killers and Sanada, the Sakura father in White Phantom.

Not enough Ninja!
7 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This movie appears to be a sort of unofficial sequel to the vastly superior Sakura Killers.

Again, the story here revolves around the criminal exploits of the evil Sakura Foundation. This time they've managed to procure i.e steal, a consignment of weapons grade plutonium, enough to level an entire city in fact!

And so enters the eponymous hero of the title to save the day.

Sadly however, rather than donning full ninja gear and kicking some major gluteus maximus, most of the films running time is squandered with our hero in the disguise of a sort of streetwise....erm....well arsehole frankly who gets repeatedly drunk and 'parties' the nights away with the local prostitutes! The reason for this decidedly undisciplined behaviour is ostensibly so that he can get familiar with the girl friend of the main villain in the film.

My advice if you wish to watch this, is to fast forward to the final ten minutes or so to view the inevitable climatic showdown between the good guy and his nemesis.

This scene is really the only decent one in the entire movie.

Overall then, viewed as a sequel (of sorts) to the earlier mentioned Sakura Killers, this movie represents a sadly missed opportunity.

Interestingly, the climax of this film leaves open the possibility of another Sakura Foundation oriented flick, although this never actually materialised.

I believe that it would be entirely equitable to say, that in light of the overall quality of the movie reviewed here, the idea of yet another sequel is perhaps best left on hold.
