The Black Ninja Takes Cheesy Movies To A Whole New Level.
12 December 2004 | by (Calimesa, California) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure what this movie was intended to be. The video store claimed it was an action movie, but that was the worst part of the movie. The "Black Ninja" used the same move in every fight scene in which he somehow revolves around behind the villain and makes him shoot his own partner. That got old after awhile, but the thing that really wore me down was the constant quick replays. Every time something happened that was supposed to pack a punch, they replayed it 3 times and believe me, they could have cut that down by about 90%.

I guess I thought the whole movie, itself, was just cheesy. I knew this would be the case when the opening credits were rolling and it said the director was, I'm not kidding here, "Me". And my instincts didn't let me down. This was one of the cheesiest pieces of film I've ever seen. I believe the soundtrack consisted of just the one theme song, which takes cheese to a whole new level.

The acting was also pretty bad. I didn't buy Clayton Prince as a Johnnie Cochran type of lawyer. His dialogue, as was everyone else's was poorly written. I feel sorry for the Red Ninja, as he was even worse than the black one. He reminds me of the bad guys in Kung Pow: Enter The Fist. That voice of his was so stupid.

Overall, I'm being pretty hard on this movie. I've seen a lot of reviews saying it could have been done by a film student or themselves. It's not quite that bad. Look at Savage Roses and then tell me which is worse. It was bad, but not unwatchable. You just have to be in the mood for this sort of thing. It would be a good kid's movie. Nothing really objectable for kids in there, but if you're looking for something along the lines of American Ninja or even The Karate Kid, look somewhere else.
