Trivia

When shooting this movie, Alexander Rei Lo was also making another movie with the same crew, so when they were at a specific location (e.g. a waterfall), they shot one scene from one script then quickly had him change clothes and make up and shot the scene from the other script in the same location.

Goofs

In one of the first scenes in the police department, Lt. Ronnie Kwun looks at Tyger McPherson's alleged personal files (with the war-picture from Vietnam attached), but the text on the paper he's looking at is actually the script from the movie, with all the dialogue from the previous scene.

A fun ninja ride
19 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The always excellent Alexander Lou once again dons full ninja regalia and fights for justice in this rather enjoyable ninja outing, brought to us by the same director who gave us the classic 'The Super Ninja' aka 'Killers Invincible'

The plot here is a nice and straight forward 'hero must rescue girlfriend in peril from someone who once saved his life' affair. The 'someone' in question is played by big George Nicholas who ninja fans will instantly recognise as one of the ninja good guys in the hugely enjoyable 'Sakura Killers'

Of course as you might expect our hero must firstly battle his way through legions of his nemesis' ninja minions in some superbly choreographed (but mostly hideously sped up!) fight scenes which fill out the majority of the movies running time.

Yes it's somewhat formulaic stuff but is still nonetheless a fun one and a half hour ride if you like this sort of thing.

One point to watch out for though......the dubbing is particularly horrendous in this although to be fair...such an aspect in my opinion actually serves to raise the enjoyment bar as it provides some amusing comic relief in a film which actually seems to take itself deadly seriously(!!!)
