Masazuka faces Casey during their first fight with his bokken in his right hand. This is not correct form when facing an opponent as it precludes rapid drawing of the weapon and striking. The students (including Masazuka) sit correctly at the start of this sequence with the weapon on their right hand side to signal that they do not have hostile intent, whereas Masazuka keeps his weapon in his right hand after rising. This is evident when he must rapidly shift hands before the fight begins. See more »
First let's get one thing straight! This is a genre movie. If you go
into it thinking you are going to watch the Godfather then you are
going to be disappointed. Scott Atkins delivers the goods big time as
the hero ninja Casey further cementing him as a go to action guy. The
moves this guy can do are out of this world. The story is pretty basic.
An adopted American taken in and raised as a ninja. The fight scenes
for the most part are beautifully done. Tsuyoshi Ihara is the real
discovery of this movie. This guy should be getting some steady work.
Now the bad stuff. The C.G.I. blood was cool in some parts, but over
the top in others. The gliding with the wings could have been left out.
The C.G.I. was a little over the top in the sword fights. I was also
disappointed with the character Namiko. She was a little to frail for
modern day women in action movies. Yes there are some cheesy lines, but
that is part of the fun of these movies. The movie screams old school
80's movie, but in a good way. It ends up being a far superior film
than Ninja Assassin and was made for a fraction of the cost. If you
love action movies and hate the metro-sexual heroes that we get jammed
down our throats every film then this is the movie for you. I hope we
get to see more like this because this movie had my blood racing the
