Some good independent fun!
4 November 2005 | by YerkmanSee all my reviews

I've been a long time follower of "The Stunt People"'s films. So naturally I almost pee'd myself when Undercut came out. I was not disappointed, I tell you what. The story is basically about Eric Ninja, who is a ninja for the government. One day, he gets replaced by imported Chinese ninja Andy. So Eric Ninja goes through bad times, trying to find new jobs, and provide for his dog. The effects weren't Hollywood material, but they were still good. The music was well done, and in my opinion the acting was really good. But most importantly, the fight scenes were the best. Choreographed by Eric Jacobus himself, the fights were interesting, face paced, and damn cool!

If you like independent films, ESPECIALLY good quality martial arts independent films, check out the stunt peoples movies.
