Storyline

A twenty year old feud between Ronald, a benevolant village leader and Roger, an evil tyrant, leaves Ronald dead and Roger running the village with an evil bunch of ruffians. Ronald's three children have been split up and are now young adults. Jimmy, the eldest, has been in training for 20 years to extract revenge upon his father's killer and retain control of the village. Meanwhile, evil Ninja leader Victor has stolen the Black Ninja Warrior from Charles, the new leader of the Red Ninjas. Charles sets out to recapture the Black Ninja Warrior and prevent Victor from stealing the Gold Ninja Warrior. Jimmy heads for the village to get Roger as Charles begins his quest to find and destroy Victor. Jimmy has doubts: will he take back the village, will he be re-united with his brother and sister and will he deal with Roger? But Charles is confident that his good Ninja powers will defeat the evil power. The final battle is between good and evil, right and wrong, Ninja clans and justice. Written by Anonymous

Everyone once in a while we people stumbled upon a piece of art
14 September 2004 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Everyone once in a while we people stumbled upon a piece of art, a book, a painting or a movie for that matter that will fundamentally change our lives. 'The Ultimate Ninja' has had a similar impact on my life.

The plot is extremely moving and very psychologically interesting touching topics such as father-son-relationships, rape victims, and first and foremost the hardships of people ruled by evil tyrants. Hence the exciting personal relationships are the foundation, upon which this highly political movie is based.

I'm especially impressed with the brilliant action skills of the actors, mainly Bruce Baron of course, but Stuart Steen is also a very talented young man, who has surely got a promising future ahead of him. The force of the movie is really that the epic story is presented in such an entertaining and realistic way. The fighting skills of Bruce Baron mesmerise everyone and I often watch the ending with its extremely cool special effects.

Altogether, I cannot recommend this movie enough. This movie might be the highlight of mankind's effort to transform arts into movies and I beg you people to see it. I'm convinced it'll change your lives as it did with mine.
