Trivia

The dubbed version of this movie begins with voice-overs from an American company. At the half-way point, however, the dubbing process was transferred to a British studio, and therefore the accents become English in the later scenes of the movie. See more »

Great fighting terrible acting baffling plot
1 June 2006 | by (Toronto Canada) – See all my reviews

I've seen parts II and III of the ninja death series and as far as I can tell I haven't missed anything essential from the plot. The plot has something to do with a guy named tiger played by the always exciting Alexander lou who is fighting ninjas. I'm not sure why he's fighting them but there are three guys from a different time period who were taught ninja arts in japan since they were kids and then they fight. One gets his eyes gouged out. Another teaches tiger kung fu and then he punches himself in the head and he dies. This was a very dramatic scene which had me in tears.

But I was soon cheered up by some of the best ninja fight scenes i've ever witnessed! The fight choreography in this film is absolutely top notch, fast and accurate fighting! THe head evil ninja with the twin hammers wearing the gold suit should win every award at the academy awards. His kung fu is fabulous and His acting (along with the poorest quality English dubbing i've ever heard) is hilarious! In fact everyones acting in this is hilarious. Alexander lou shows just how bad an actor he can be in nonsensical love scenes that make them very funny to watch! If you like crazy Chinese kung fu movies you'll love this, if not, the fight scenes are still worth the admission.
