"Lethal Ninja"
8 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The version I bought is titled "Lethal Ninja". It is about a city where a gang is running wild, with support from the mob. The police chief does not want to go to Chinatown so the mayor has no one else to turn to... until he receives a card that only says "for hire" and has a phone number on it. After receiving around three cards, the mayor decides to call. He meets a man named J.D. Makay, a ninja. Makay offers to rid the city of the gang, for a price. The story is not too bad. I have seen worse. The fight scenes are not too over the top, which is a good thing. The acting is OK, and the choreography is decent. The movie was worth the price I paid for it. (I found it in the 2 for $5 bin at Wal mart.)
