For Hire or Lethal Ninja (in Belgium)
22 June 2013 | by gminckeSee all my reviews

When a Mayor has problems with a Chinese gang the only solution is to hire the services of a Ninja. He simply needs to pay him 1 million $ (It's not a problem to be Ninja and Businessman in the same time). Whatever the plot of the movie seems to be simple, but some "flashback" are very confused. I guess that scenes were deleted during the shooting. The Ninja (Mc Kay)is also Will Stiles' teacher (the mayor kid). He'll try to train him, but wont be as good as Master Miyagi in Karate Kid. Will is just the worst "Sidekick" of all time. Finally it's a fun movie: Not a good one but the cheap effects and the 90's clothes will entertain you!
