Storyline

Black Shadow, a recently graduated ninja assassin, returns home from his training to begin his career; however, due to the tight job market, he is forced to take on a job as a stock-boy at the local grocery. Mike and Drew, two fraternity brothers, hop from convenience store to convenience store exploring the competitive side of the "beer run." And Janitor Joe goes to great extremes to prove to everyone at the grocery store that he can - in fact - be a "creepy janitor" as these three seemingly disparate story lines converge in a large-scale grocery store fiasco.

More than the premise might suggest
1 February 2007 | by (Burke, Virginia) – See all my reviews

I caught this at the DC Shorts festival last fall, and was pleasantly surprised to find that what I feared would be just a one-gag film (I could just picture the pitch: "Okay, so we've got a ninja, only he works at a convenience store. And he meets a bunch of other wacky characters. Hijinks ensue!") turned out to be surprisingly well plotted, with very well developed (if more than a bit over-the-top) characters (not necessarily deep, but definitely motivated), great comedic pacing, and some really fun performances. And yeah, there were enough gags to live up to the premise. Definitely worth seeking out at a festival screening -- and if it becomes available on DVD, I'll definitely try to pick it up.
