Well, matters at least get off to a cracking start in this when a ninja is shown sneaking into a professors office, before viciously slaying him and his wheelchair bound daughter(!) This is followed by the opening credits which roll to an arrangement of the end theme from Bladrunner!!! A great opening I'm sure you'll concur! Sadly however, what follows doesn't live up to this initial level of joyous trash and is a decidedly tedious affair at best.
Romano Kristoff appears in this as the ninja hero who is brought in to deal with matters (remember only a ninja can kill a ninja as the old movie motto goes!) and by gum! what a boring hero he makes to! In fact, there's very little in this movie to distinguish it at all other than a few instances of naked breasts on display and one rather admittedly cool decapitation. Other than that, the martial arts are pathetic, the 'plot' meanders aimlessly and basically nothing of any interest transpires.
Mike Monty is utterly wasted in his role but I suppose at least he got paid for turning up whereas I never received a penny for sitting through this!
My advice; skip this inane effort and go and watch some IFD ninja produce instead now THAT'S how a ninja film should be!
