Enjoyable ninja segments but the rest.....ARGH!!!!
Released in Europe under the alternative title of Ninja Project Daredevils, this cut and splice ninja outing has the rather unfortunate distinction of featuring a frankly interminable tale into which the newer ninja themed segments have been added and one which in addition seems to drag on for a merciless eternity!
The meandering story concerns a young lad who is seized by the army after he attempts to instigate a rebellion. It transpires (slowly and excruciatingly) that the boy gradually comes to the realisation that his former enemies are anything but as they show him great compassion and teach him new values etc etc .yawn.
Whilst the above plot is pretty much unbearable to endure (bar one brief but unforgettable scene where our young protagonist is seen manually inflating a condom!!!), the ninja segments are, I'm pleased to say, as usual, hilarious stuff (albeit sadly too few and far between) The final battle especially proves to be a laugh riot beyond belief and includes some missile firing nunchaku and flame throwing sai!!!! Wow!!!!
Not only that but check out some of the priceless dialogue on offer including in a scene near the start when Michael, the evil leader of the Gold ninja (whose members dress in black! eh?!) says to George (leader of the purple ninja 'gang' whose members dress in white! eh?!) that he is sorry to hear of the purple ninja groups economic problems eh?!?!?!? Who the hell writes these scripts?!
