Serious martial arts film!
22 March 2004 | by ryan-277See all my reviews

For fans of martial arts films, Ninja Hunter is satisfying on a number of levels. It's tone is set right from the start, fast paced and relentless. Abbott White, the evil Wu Tang priest is bent on destroying the shaolin temple and he's developped a special kung fu style to help him do it! Alot of great films of this era were filled with over the top comedy and sadly this film is no exception. somehow i feel if the bad jokes and potty humour were left out of this film it could have been a classic.

Aside from that, if there was an award for the most fights in a single kung fu film, Ninja Hunter would take the cake. There is a constant spat going on between the many characters in the film and believe me, this one has them all! Shaolin, Ninjas, Wu Tang, Flying Nuns and on top of all the great fight scenes, there's also several extensive training sequences with all the characters!

Another film that deserves a widescreen release! If you are a kung fu fan, this film is amazing fun and the sheer amount of fights make for dozens of repeated viewings. also has a ton of references to earlier kung fu films that are fun to pick out!
