Goofs

Since Mika gave Raizo the homing capsule, his former ninja colleagues shouldn't have been able to leave the country with him. However, the authorities would have had to let the clan take Raizo back to their home dojo in order to locate it. See more »

really good movie
20 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great movie, A lot of good action, and fun all around. I was really worried about them messing the genre up by being too modern..but i think it was a really good effort...

i'm really into a lot of old school samurai, king fu, and martial art movies, and this one was about as good as a modern day ninja film could be...

lot's of gore and violence, which is great to me, simply because too many movie water down the violence in an attempt to draw in younger audiences, but this film knew exactly who their target audience was...and received a standing ovation as a result...

if u are expecting something fun, definitely check it out.....
