Storyline

In 1937, Japan began their invasion of China by murdering over 300,000 people in the capital of Nanjing. The atrocities committed against women and their daughters are especially barbaric. In Beijing, there are rumors that a masked man is systematically killing Japanese soldiers, working his way to the top Japanese General of the 1937 invasion on Chinese women. With the world's attention on Europe, treaties are useless and genocide rages throughout the country going unnoticed. An American reporter is sent to China to uncover the truth about the unrest between China and Japan. What he finds threatens his own life and the sovereignty of the United States.

Ninjas vs WWII soldiers
5 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

Cool Ninja Movie but in the WWII time-line and beautiful location.

The story: During Japan's invasion of China in 1937, a masked avenger systematically murders Japanese soldiers after horrible atrocities are committed against her family. A group of Chinese resistance members are gathering to rescue their leader from a Japanese prison camp.

What I love about this ninja film is it mix With WWII settings, and yet it doesn't take away any serious tune, as a matter of fact the history and the situation and the war crime that was committed during the Japanese occupation of China 1937 is shown here too, but instead of playing the part of the regular war Movies, it is played with a Classic ninja Movie style.

In other words, this movie should not be judged as a war film but as an action/adventure film.

Also I love the Chinese location they shot the film, from Beautiful landscape of the ocean and countryside to the big Palace own by the Japanese General.

It's not exactly a war Movie for those who are fans of that kind of genre but should be able to find something worth of history.

And for all ninja fans out there should be entertained of the story and the martial art.
