Surely Oscar material.....*splutter!*
16 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Yes indeedy, it's yet more cut and splice ninja shenanigans as delivered unto us by that wonderful chap, Mr Tomas Tang.....or is it Godfrey Ho? In fact the version I watched has a certain Victor Sears as director with Tang as producer. The tangled web of intrigue behind these movies and the dubious dealings, non payment of certain actors and multiple aliases adopted by the makers have become the stuff of (infamous) cinematic legend so it's virtually impossible to say who directed what with any certainty. Truly the only thing that one can say with any degree of confidence is that these films possess a comparable level of technical proficiency that would have surely rendered even the late Ed Wood speechless with horror!

The 'plot' here at least is pretty straight forward (a rarity for these films!) The police confiscate a suitcase of heroin from some big time dealers. A group of ninja then steal the case from the turn blue ninja (the good guy) steals the merchandise from the bad that? throw in a prostitution/female slavery racket, a playboy hero (who may or may not be a cop-it's never really explained), a wheel chair bound crime boss who despises his son and a magic ninja ring(!) and I'm sure you get the idea.....don't you?

At this point I feel that I really must commend all the actors concerned in the newer edited in segments for their outstanding contribution to gob-smackingly abysmal cinematic performances, especially as showcased in one jaw dropping scene where the wheel chair bound bad guy begs one of his henchmen never to let his son get hold of his magic ring. Truly such a rivetingly atrocious display has seldom before or since ever been committed to celluloid. To the actor playing the said part - I salute you sir! May all future poor acting performances be judged upon the standards thou set in this incredible scene; A veritably priceless performance indeed!

As is customary in these films, the ninja are obliged to meet up at the films climax for a final showdown. Interestingly, the fight at the end of this is far larger scale than is usually witnessed in these movies with our lone hero taking on about twenty ninja at once in an enjoyably energetic battle. Not that the odds are any problem for our man, no, he's doing just fine against his multiple foes until that is, by seemingly some miracle, wheel chair guy lets off a lunatic yell, suddenly leaps about 30 feet into the air and proceeds to beat the crap out of him!!! EH?! WHAT THE HELL?!

Blue ninja is subsequently tied up and asked where he has hidden the drugs stash. After initially refusing to cooperate, he is suddenly eager to divulge the requisite info when wheel chair guy (or is it miracle man?) orders that he be killed. Revealing the suitcase full of drugs to be situated in a nearby tree, blue ninja is spared but is hoisted up into the air by ropes to be further punished.

However, he has one last surprise in store, for when wheel chair man orders the case to be opened, the 'Extreme Weapon' of the films title is detonated sending wheel chair man and all his lackeys on a one way ticket to the great beyond!

What can I say? High art this is not, and it's certainly not even one of the better efforts of it's kind, but for fans of this much maligned sub(standard)genre, this should certainly provide a chuckle or two.
