Classic B-Movie Ninja, from Godfrey Ho
14 September 2010 | by (Land of the dead) – See all my reviews

Godfrey Ho is probably the greatest trash or b-movie director, he is notorious for his ninja movies, Ninja Thunderbolt is probably the most notorious of his Ninja movies.

Usually, the "plot" on Godfrey Ho movies are confusing and sometimes he "recicles" parts of his older movies and add's them to his "new" movie (AKA: Cut and paste technique).

This time, Godfrey Ho tell us the story about the Ninja Golden Idol getting stolen. Inspector Wang gets involved in the "Ninja Empire" while investigating "regular" crimes.

Highlights of the film include: -a chase scene is put "on speed up", adding a comical effect - A sex scene (are you thinking that this is a kid's movie ?) - The Chase scene where a bunch of ninjas are chasing Detective Wang (while he is driving a "Bubble Car"). Recommended for who wants to get approached in the craptastic world of Godfrey Ho !
