For every defeat, there will be victory. For every failure, there will be success. We have taken one step backward, but I can assure you... the next move will be two steps forward! This is... the way of the ninja.

If you are watching this film, you obviously have an appreciation for ninja film. This is a good start; compared to real films, this film is atrocious. I won't waste my time going into explaining why. A similarity can be drawn with pornography; the viewer forfeits acting, plot, cinematography, whatever, for the subject matter. If you watch this film, you want to see ninjas, and that is what you get. The end fight is great, some good training scenes, and the film is enjoyably ornamented with ninja mythology. People disappearing in clouds of smoke, walking under sand, flying through the air, committing hari-kari. The film has some great ideas, and should be watched with an open mind.
