Storyline

Seven friends, struggling with late 20s, early 30's life, find themselves in terrifying danger when a long-dead loved one is magically resurrected and starts devouring souls. To make matters worse, three of them have been granted the power of the Ninja, and now must lead the fight against a power they cannot hope to vanquish. If they fail, the un-dead will overrun their little town, and quite possibly the world. Written by Daniel Ross

The title writes a check it's ass can't cash.
9 June 2011 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

I love ninjas and I love zombies, but I don't love Ninjas vs Zombies; it's not that I hate the film, per se—I've seen much, much worse—but any film with such an amazingly awesome title yet such a low budget is almost always going to disappoint.

To really do such a cool concept justice, one would preferably have martial arts choreography by Donnie Yen, make-up effects by KNB, and visual effects from ILM. Director Justin Timpane's budget doesn't stretch that far, so what we actually get is fight scenes performed by a few guys from the local dojo, make-up and costumes from the fancy dress shop round the corner, and digital trickery courtesy of someone's home PC. Some of it works (the fights are reasonably fun), but most of it doesn't.

This, combined with a script that strives to be funny, but which frequently falls flat on its face thanks to poor delivery by an inexperienced cast, results in an admittedly brave attempt by a group of enthusiastic film-makers, but one that consistently betrays its amateur status.

I rate Ninjas vs Zombies 3/10, but generously bump it up a point for a couple of brief and utterly gratuitous moments of female nudity: Tara Moore flaunting her curves in skimpy underwear and a busty blonde giving full frontal in a blink and you'll miss it shot towards the end of the film.
