POILER: During the final battle on the helipad on the roof, Brayden uses a mini blowtorch to attack Cho with. This would be the first film in which a Ninja would utilize exotic weapons other than the more traditional ones established in Enter The Ninja like the sword or ninja stars. Brayden also uses two spear like knives to kill Caifano's men in the hallway, a mini knife to maim Caifano, a mini axe to kill Caifano's son, A specialized pole stick with a retractable blade to kill Keith Vitali's character in the hallway that turns out to contain a standard ninja sword without the square and a mini knife that detaches from the bottom in which he uses against Cho during the final battle, a garrote to kill his sumo sized assistant about to rape Cathy and a special ninja star which looks like a compass star to kill Caifano's street informant in broad daylight.

Before Cho and Braden jump down to the badminton court to begin their fight, Cho's uniform patch is on the right side of his chest. All other times, it is on the left side. See more »
In the version seen on cable premium channels but edited on video, when Sho stabs Brayden in the stomach, blood spurts out for about a good 5-10 seconds before Sho slices his mask in half. In the video version, this is cut out. See more »
Revenge Of The Ninja is a classic 80's ninja movie, I grew up watching this movie and other crap ninja movies and I would always come back to this one. You always knew when you rented an action movie which started with the Cannon logo on screen or was a ' Golan / Globus production ' you were going to be entertained. Yes, the acting is dreadful and the plot could have been written by a 14 year old, but its entertaining. The fight scenes at the time were amazing, baring in mind that action flicks back then did not rely on CGI effects. The action was also fairly brutal, as far as I am aware all UK VHS versions were heavily cut as the film was released around the same time the BBFC appeared and were censor happy on anything involving ninja stars and nunchakus etc. I can understand why someone watching it now who has never seen it before would find the film 100% crapola, but if you remember this film fondly from your childhood then make sure you watch it now, its just as good now as it was back then. Make sure you get your hands on the region 1 DVD version as it is uncut and has a good few extra minutes of violent action which was snipped from the uk video versions.
