Trivia

Alphonse Beni approached director Godfrey Ho about making the movie at the Cannes Film Festival. Beni was a distributor for Ho's movies in Cameroon, and expressed interest in making a film with Ho if he were allowed to be the star. Ho agreed, so long as Beni financed the movie himself. In the future, Ho would jokingly comment how lousy he thought the finished product was. See more »

If you haven't seen yet Ninja: Silent Assassin ; you haven't seen yet the worst movie of the entire world.
30 October 2003 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This movie is THE WORST MOVIE I've ever seen. And the worst in EVERY field : -worst actor -worst history -worst words (for me in french ..... but I think the original version is not so better that french version) -worst choreograph

Conclusion : It's my favourite movie. Recommandation : You must see it.
