Eh?! What the hell was that all about?!
16 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sometimes rarely, a film is released unto the public that so shines in quality as to dazzle its audience and silence even the most ardent of critics. In short, these films are almost universally adored and as a result such films (and they are indeed a rare phenomena) win themselves the much coveted title of a 'classic'. In such instances a perfect equilibrium exists between such factors as production values, acting performances, photography, direction etc which all combine to create a cinematic and artistic masterpiece.

Conversely, the status of all 'non classic' films therefore could be attributed to those movies in which the various aforementioned cinematic factors are at in imbalance to varying degrees – a factor which serves to destabilise the films overall integrity. Obviously although tastes vary widely, it would be equitable to say that the vast majority of films belong in the latter category.

There is however a third category of film, a category equally as rare as the first in fact and this may be defined as those rather unfortunate films that actually have no cinematic merits whatsoever! These unfortunate entities fail utterly miserably in virtually every single department. Indeed the acting, production, directing etc in these films are so completely and entirely inept as to render them virtually unwatchable to the vast majority of the (sane) movie watching public.

However and as illogical as it may sound, sometimes the very fact that a movie can be SO bad and SO inept actually, bizarrely serves to its advantage… is then that the curious phenomena of the 'so bad its good' movie is born!

Ninja vs Ninja undoubtedly falls into this category!

Here my friends we have a film that is so god awful in every single way that you can't but help to admire it!

From the very opening with our ninja hero (who only appears in about three scenes in the entire movie!) who is shown training (and running in an extremely sissy manner!) to some super cool and groovy (and entirely inappropriate!) seventies music, to the completely non related and frankly baffling crime film plot (in reality a completely different film into which the ninja segments are edited) – this film really is an hilarious (unintentional) laugh fest!

To be quite honest, even though I've only just finished watching it, I still have no idea what the hell was going on in this for the most part! The plot really meanders all over the place and makes virtually no sense whatsoever! (a factor which only adds to the charm!)

From what I could gather, some evil ninja want a tape from a man charmingly referred to as Fatso. The CIA are also after this tape. And why are they all after the tape? Just what intrinsic information does it store? Well to be quite honest – I haven't got a bloody clue! Nor did I understand who the hero ninja was and what his interest in the tapes recovery was (if he indeed was interested in it at all!) In fact virtually nothing is explained in the film but frankly who cares…. if you're at all into Z-grade movies, then this really is essential viewing! A true demented classic!
