Trivia

The dubbed version of this movie begins with voice-overs from an American company. At the half-way point, however, the dubbing process was transferred to a British studio, and therefore the accents become English in the later scenes of the movie. See more »

Very entertaining bit of martial arts silliness
19 April 2017 | by Red-BarracudaSee all my reviews

Ninja Death is the first in a series of three films that seem to have been made at the same time. It begins as it means to go on with a truly crazed fight between three good guys defending a baby and a princess against a gang of ninja assassins and their evil overlord. It's a demented affair with an eye gouging, a suicide and men being kicked several metres along the ground. It gives a pretty good indication of the film we are about to see, as Ninja Death is quite clearly a very committedly ridiculous film, with characters such as a man in a gold all-in-one suit armed with a couple of hammers and another sporting a demon mask who pirouettes through the air. It's chock full of entertaining fights that are sometimes camped up to the max. Events seem to revolve around a bouncer at a brothel who is at one point attacked by a man disguised as a female prostitute.

Essentially, this is a markedly better than average slice of chopsocky action. Its entertainment level is much better because it is more fearlessly ridiculous than most others and doesn't get bogged down with tedium like most in the genre do at some stage. Fast, frenetic and daft as a brush – that's this film.
