A dud
10 August 2013 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

I have found with these faux ninja movies coming out of Hong Kong is that they are either so bad they are hilarious, or they are tedious enough that you'll be hoping their ends come quickly. Sadly, with this particular Hong Kong ninja movie, there's not much entertainment value. Though these movies' plots are usually quite incoherent, the plot of this one is quite bewildering - something to do with a stolen microfilm. More disappointing was the newly shot ninja footage edited into an already existing movie. For the first third, just about all the ninja footage consists of ninjas observing the events of the already existing movie. Eventually the ninjas get to do a lot more, but what they do isn't particularly exciting or hilarious. It's just tedious. In fact, the entire movie more or less plays out this way. Even if you are a fan of these ninja mishmash movies, this particular one is best skipped.
