The worst movie i have ever seen.
3 December 2001 | by (canberra, australia) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** I probably use that line a lot, but thats because the movies i watch get worse and worse. And maybe, MAYBE, someday there will be a movie worse than this one. But i doubt it.

The back of the box says 'a man uses his ninja skills to avenge his fathers death'. His father isn't even in the movie. Yuo would think they could show us a bit of respect. I think the story is about a man without a name who sees a girl getting raped, then they blame it on him and then they fight a lot. Then they capture the nameless man, and 150,000 other characters with no names are introduced to the movie. They all die. Then, in the middle of the vague plot, we suddenly are taken to the jungle, and 3 people we have never seen before fight 2 people we have never seen before. The three people win, then it goes back to the 'story', and the fight had absolutely no relevance to the movie.

Then some more stuff happens, more characters with no names, and then the main characters are killed HALFWAY THROUGH THE MOVIE!!

So then they have to introduce more main characters without names to pick up where the other ones left off. Except they dont, they start a completely different quest, fight some more people who we have never seen before but are suddenly pivotal to the plot, and bash them. Then they fight some guy in a cape who can punch people in the jaw who are turned away from him 10 metres away.

If this review is a mess, wait until you see the movie. Even technically it's hopeless - there are 2 (that's right, 2) noises played when someone lands a punch or a kick, and one of them is a 'boing'. Me and a friend almost died laughing when the ninjas were hitting each other over 'boing boing boing'. Also, the camerawork is the definition of bad. You would think that the camera could at least look at people's faces when they talk. Often, a character will be talking and the camera will have a little bit of the side of his face on the edge of the screen, and the rest is staring off into space. Sometimes the camera makes a mistake and then corrects itself, which is even funnier.

But when i say this is the worst movie i have ever seen, i don't mean it was the most painful to watch. It is the worst made, but it is great fun to watch and notice all the flaws. So, i'm giving it a 1, but i highly reccomend it.
