'Ninjaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!'
13 June 2005 | by HaemovoreRexSee all my reviews

....So shouts a frankly embarrassed looking Richard Harrison at the start of this, one of my personal favourites of the numerous z-grade ninja 'spectaculars' that were churned out by our favourite cinematic partners in crime, Joseph Lai and Godfrey Ho.

And Harrison's co star in this? - Why it's none other than that perennial bad acting maestro Stuart Smith, here playing the eponymous Cobra of the films title who is running high stakes bets on the eventual outcome of various ninja battles involving the Red Champion (Harrison)

As usual, expect a joyful plethora of awful dubbing and some woefully inept attempts to link the ninja segments into the entirely non related (and frankly interminable) crime film that makes up the bulk of the total running time.

The ninja sequences are particularly cool here with some superbly energetic, not to mention acrobatic, combat on display utilising a good array of weaponry with all the action driven on by a very cool (and very stolen) soundtrack.

Well......What more could you ask for in a film?! Godfrey Ho and Joseph Lai......I salute you!
