Very, Very Bad
3 March 2005 | by FoShowtySee all my reviews

I had heard from someone that this is the absolute worst movie ever and when I saw it, it was pretty darn bad. But that's what makes a movie like this so entertaining. What do you expect from a cheesy 1980s B movie about ninjas? I would say it serves its purpose, but if we are talking overall film making, then this one fails miserably. It's hard to understand why movies like this get the budget but hell, it sure is entertaining. For all the wrong reasons. One main reason for it's failure, is whoever marketed it. The back reveals the actual ending and there is a short preview before the film starts that reveals the ending again. When first seeing this film I laughed and laughed and laughed because I thought it was such a waste. I only paid $3 Canadian for it, and it was still a waste of money. However, it is definitely the kind of movie that brings people together. For example: "Do you remember that God awful movie about ninjas?" "Yes, that was God awful, now let us never speak of it again."

Watch it for yourself and see why it brings laughter and tears to your eyes, for the wrong reasons indeed.
