Pierre Kirby, star of other Godfrey Ho classics such as Zombie vs Ninja and Full Metal Ninja, headlines in this hilarious outing which must surely rank as one of the very finest of its cut and splice kind. In it he appears as Ferris, a ninja pupil who sets out to avenge his master's death after he is murdered by Ross, a fellow pupil who has secretly aggregated a small ninja army loyal unto him. Meanwhile, in a completely separate plot (and film!) another pupil, Lee embarks upon a mission of revenge against the intriguingly named Old Fox and Kong.
Via a spot of editing magic our old pal the Ho'ster weaves the two tales together (somewhat less than seamlessly!) and tries (in vain!) to convince us that Lee was in fact also a pupil of the murdered Ninja master and that his motivation is also retribution for his preceptor's death(!)
Did I mention that somewhere in the mix there is a sub plot involving clay pottery? No? How is this plot relevant? Erm...I haven't got a bloody clue!!!
Still, the 'plot' very much takes a back seat to the numerous fight scenes in this which ostensibly make up about 99% of the films running time! Hardly a moment seems to go by without either Lee getting into a major scuffle or else, and much more fun Ferris taking on Ross's decidedly obtuse ninja cronies.
If you've ever had the pleasure of viewing one of these movies before, you'll no doubt have delighted to witness the hilarious attempts by the film makers to link the two (or more) films together in such a way that characters from one (completely separate) movie appear to be interacting with the characters from the newer ninja segments well the same shamelessly brazen technique is utilised here yet again and as usual, the result utterly defies belief! Suffice to say, keeping a straight face proves to be a Herculean task!
Added to all this the film boasts some of the daftest dialogue and voice over work I've yet had the joy to behold in any of the films of its ilk.
What can I say? Yes its dumb but its awesomely fun and is veritably intrinsic viewing for fellow connoisseurs of craptacular movies!
