Joon Lee, who plays teenage Raizo in the movie, was a member of the South Korean boy band MBLAQ. The band was created and mentored by Rain himself. See more »
In the scene where Mika gets back into the car in the parking garage of the warehouse, when the Ninjas start to attack her car and she starts it by pushing the start button, the Tachometer swings to the right and appears to "rev up". Therefore the sound effects man put a revving engine noise into the scene. The tachometer going to the right is just a test at start up of the car. See more »

Amazing action sequences, enough blood to keep fans satisfied
This movie is as cool as ninja can get ! The action sequences are jaw dropping, the choreographies are stunning, the chases are pulse accelerating.
The story begins in a building where a yakuza henchmen is getting himself a tattoo. As they argue about trivial things, the clan receives a letter with black sand inside. The tattoo master warns them about their imminent death, but they laugh at him. The next scene is one of the goriest one I've ever seen. The ninja hired to assassinate them makes salsa out of their body. Ninja Assassin.
The plot is centered around two federal agents who are on their way to reveal the secret ninja society. Their lives are in great danger as this secret must be preserve at all cost by the clan. Raizo (Rain) just escaped from his clan and wants to protect Mika, one of the two agents, as a way to redeem himself from all the sins he's done.
As this story spins and runs, we get to see a young orphan (Raizo) grow up in a Ninja clan lead by his sadistic master who brutalizes his students to prepare them for the path that a ninja have to walk.
All in all this movie was hands down an awesome Ninjitsu experience, with enough blood to keep fans satisfied.
