Fun and enjoyable low budget film
4 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mark Hicks' film "Afro Ninja: Destiny" obviously came about due to the notoriety of Mr. Hicks' viral video. That being said, Hicks has put together a lighthearted action comedy. A real pleasure seeing Jim Kelly, back on screen (even if it is simply a cameo). Also catching stunt performers Michiko Nishiwaki and Ming Qiu in what are comedic roles is a very nice surprise. While the fight scenes are nothing spectacular, they are performed with the right level of tongue in cheek bravado. But what makes this film work best, are the many character moments given to the cast. This is obviously a film that was a labor of love and a good time for all involved.

Simply a fun movie, that breezes along without overstaying its welcome. It will be nice to see what Directer/ Star Mark Hicks does next.
