Trivia

After Raizo (Rain) is first captured and chained to the wall, one of his captors looks at him and says, "He looks like he should be in a boy band." Rain started his career in the boy band Fanclub. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Mika gets back into the car in the parking garage of the warehouse, when the Ninjas start to attack her car and she starts it by pushing the start button, the Tachometer swings to the right and appears to "rev up". Therefore the sound effects man put a revving engine noise into the scene. The tachometer going to the right is just a test at start up of the car. See more »

Awesome
27 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After reading a couple of reviews, i was prepared to come out of the theatre disappointed, but what i saw on screen was a fantastic homage to a a genre that has become a bit of a joke... the Ninja is back! I cannot understand why this movie could get a negative review. You are paying money to watch a film about violent assassins and this is exactly what you get. Blood by the bucket load, dismemberment, decapitation, all the things you would expect from a Ninja movie. I would pay to watch this again, and can only hope that 18 rated movies are not a thing of the past, and that this one does well at the box office so a sequel can be made.

A must see.
