Trained since childhood to be a lethal killer, Raizo has since turned his back on the Ozunu clan that raised him and now seeks revenge for their heartless murders. Teaming up with Europol investigator Mika, Raizo steadily butchers his enemies while inching ever closer to the long-awaited bloody reunion with his former master.Written by

The fight scenes were staged without having to have recourse to wirework or digital finetuning, except for the shadow-blending VFX. See more »
Since Mika gave Raizo the homing capsule, his former ninja colleagues shouldn't have been able to leave the country with him. However, the authorities would have had to let the clan take Raizo back to their home dojo in order to locate it. See more »

only 1 ninja was harmed during the making of this film, the rest of them were killed
First off I would like to say that anyone who thinks this movie sucks because it has very little plot is an idiot.
Now let me tell you what Ninja Assassin isn't.
Its not a serious thinking movie, it's not a Gandhi, it's not a Saw type movie.
And it isn't a Twilight that's for sure.
The reason why Ninja Assassin is so friggin cool is because you know that the people making this movie had one thing in mind... Have a ton of Ninjas kill each other. Ninja Assassin is a fun guys night out type movie, at least that's how I saw this movie. Though some people walked out booing I walked out cheering because I came in and honestly just wanted a huge body count and a ton of blood and boy did they deliver.
My only major critique was the CGI blood... Though there were gallons of it coming out they could have stepped it up some more...
In a way this movie was like Rambo...Equal budget of 50 million, unbelievable carnage and pure fun... But the difference is that its acrobatic, its hacking slashing, gallons of blood and Ninjas with blades on chains = )...
So all in all a solid 8/10 for me.
PS. Watch out for the opening scene and the police station scene because those scenes are epic awesome.
