General: Good B movie. Acting: Very Mediocre. Storyline: Typical.
Direction: Actually pretty decent! I believe Florentine deserves to move higher in Hollywood. He makes some great action flicks with a very limited budget. Watch Undisputed II as well, even better than Ninja.
Action: The BEST. This movie has great fight scenes, better than most of the big budget movies out there. The choreography is also well directed, which means you can actually appreciate every Japanese Ju Jitsu movement in this movie.
Conclusion: A cool flick to watch with guys. It's not bad at all. Give it a chance, if you want to see an above the average martial arts action film, with good direction and great (Ong Bak style, no wires and CGI) fight scenes, just please do not watch it for the acting.
