Ninja fun abridged from a trilogy
16 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Lo Yiu aka the Super Ninja himself Alexander Lou stars in this entertaining ninja fest as a bouncer for a local brothel who is blissfully ignorant of his true identity as the rightful master of a ninja clan.

Yes it's clichéd, yes our hero overacts pretty horribly, yes the dubbing, script and voice-over work are all about as (endearingly) bad as you might well imagine and yes the fight scenes are as you would expect from Alexander Lou, excellent (if unfortunately sped up in many scenes) However, the whole film feels disjointed and badly structured with a great many references (from the protagonists) throughout of important occurrences that are not even shown on screen.

There is a good reason for this however.....this movie has actually been condensed i.e edited down from a three part series known here in the UK as Ninja Tiger and Ninja Death in the US. No wonder then that much of the overall coherence has been inevitably compromised.

In light of this, whilst the film reviewed here is certainly an enjoyable enough watch in its own right I recommend that viewers seriously interested skip it and watch the whole unabridged trilogy instead which showcases a cohesive story with loads more fights and intrigue.
