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.

Quite a treat
1 June 2006 | by (New England) – See all my reviews

I saw this a few months back and I thought it was just great. Just long enough, just enough little twists, just enough humor, just enough character. The character of the ninja seemed a little weird, maybe even corny, at first. Very quickly, though, he came into his own. He was SUPPOSED to feel out of place, thats really the whole point of the movie. The introduction flashback confused me at first, but that really made the movie all the better. You get to see the lead up events unraveling the confusion presented in the intro. All the twisted threads came out. Very impressive for 15 minutes! I can't think of anything I didn't like. There were a few individual lines I would have cut, but if you have a chance to see it, take it!
