Storyline

Leonard Miller is a frustrated artist. His publisher and his agent are out to capitalize on the blooming success of "Robot Ninja," the greatest costumed superhero since Batman! One night, Miller witnesses the brutal rape/murder of a young couple at the hands of ruthless thugs. He cries out for revenge! With the help of an inventor friend, Dr. Goodknight, Miller becomes the Robot Ninja, stalking the dark streets of Ridgway, intent on spilling some blood! The only thing stopping him is a remorseful Goodknight and a frustrated local cop that's always just one step behind him. ROBOT NINJA slashes, stabs, guts, pokes and jabs his way through body after body until his final confrontation with head baddie Sanchez. You'll never see comic books the same way again!

Lots of gore and lots of fun!
10 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

Robot Ninja is a masterpiece from director Bookwalter(Dead next door).Now he said that he did not like this movie but its the best movie he ever made. Lots of gore and action with a small budget. It also have special appearances by Burt Ward and Linnea Quigley. Watch it or you will be killed by the robot ninja!! 10/10
