Extremely bad
5 December 1999 | by CooperComSee all my reviews

This ninja-film is extremely bad and ridiculous. Besides from the fact that it is very dull and therefore hard to follow, the only good thing about it is that it's silly in a funny way (but only sometimes). I remember (OK you don't remember bad movies you saw 10 years ago, but this one was so bad that i did remember) that I rented this movie on video in the late 80's and thought I had a really exciting ninja-film to kill the evening with, but how wrong I was. (1 out of 10)
