For every defeat, there will be victory. For every failure, there will be success. We have taken one step backward, but I can assure you... the next move will be two steps forward! This is... the way of the ninja.

If you are ninja fan, then you know how hard it is to find a decent ninja-movie. There is American Ninja series which is my favorite ninja-movies. Also there is Sho Kosugi movies, which are good, but usually there's too little of ninja action. There's also Gotfrey Ho ninja-movies, which are not bad too, but by watching these films you get a 30% of ninja movie and 70% of totally different film, which is not always interesting. There's also Kung Fu Vs. Ninja movies, which are usually more Kung Fu than ninja films. Ninja Warriors is a 100% ninja movie. I've read other comments on this film and I agree with all of them. Yes, the plot is lame (since Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, people start thinking that martial arts movie, needs to have a plot, funny isn't it?). Yes the acting is lame too, (since Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, people start thinking that martial arts movie, needs to have great acting in it too). Some other things in the movie were silly, but that isn't important. What's important that this movie has a lot of ninjas, who were demonstrating their skills. The fighting scenes were great, though sometimes it was too short, but at least it looked effective on screen. I love Ron Marchini movies, maybe he isn't a good actor, but he is a great martial artist. I've seen his other movie which is called Death Machines, where his character didn't said a word through the whole movie, but fighting instead of it and that was great. Romano Kristoff looked kinda cool as a bad guy and I think his acting was pretty good. This movie isn't meant to be taking serious and I think that people who made this film knew how silly it is. I think they had a sense of humor. There was that drunken old man who was singing "happy birthday to me" and invited a ninja girl to a party, now wasn't that funny? The last 15 minutes were pure ninja fighting sequences with no dialogs at all. There were lots of great ninja tricks demonstrated on this film. Some of them were really clever. There also was a lot of acrobatic stunts and that looked very impressive. The direction was pretty good too. There also was one hara-kiri scene, which reminded me of those good old Japanese samurai films. So like I said, it's a 100% ninja movie and I love it. It has everything that ninja movie needs and even more. If you are looking for some great ninja movie, this is it. I wish there was more this kinda of films, because most of the ninja films are disappointing.
