Ninja Checkmate is a good kung fu film. It has a cool story, great fights and funny dubbing.
The plot of Checkmate Ninja is about a young man who admits a kung fu school in which his class mates don't really like him. Therefore, He becomes a friend of school's cook whose kung fu techniques are very interesting. However, the cook sends him to a chess master who at first, refused to take him as his pupil, but he agreed to take him as his pupil. The chess master teaches the young man some great techniques with which he will use while fighting against the bad guy.
This film contains many fights, private kung fu lessons, funky haircuts, funny clothes and controversial dubbing which I actually like. I really like Ninja Checkmate despite its lack of ninjas. However, I suggest that you check this kung fu film. The fights at its ending will totally blow your mind!!
