Synopsis


Ninja Assassin
V for Vendetta director James McTeigue re-teams with that film's producers Larry and Andy Wachowski for this action-packed tale of a skilled assassin who was trained by a mythical secret society, and patiently awaits the day he will avenge the death of his best friend. Swept off the streets as a young boy, Raizo (Korean pop star Rain) is transformed into an unstoppable killing machine by a secret society known as the Ozunu Clan. The Ozunu Clan is so proficient at keeping their existence a secret that most people think they are only a myth, but the moment Ozuno assassins kill Raizo's friend, their days in the shadows are numbered. In the aftermath of that killing, Raizo stages a daring escape, subsequently biding his time until the day he can take the entire Ozunu Clan down. Later, in Berlin, Europol agent Mika Coretti (Naomie Harris) discovers a money trail connecting multiple political murders to a mysterious network of elusive assassins from the Far East. While her superior Ryan Maslow (Ben Miles) orders Mika to back down and stop asking questions, she stealthily begins searching through classified agency files on a relentless mission to discover the truth about the murders. Singled out as a target as a direct result of her investigation, Mika is marked for death by lethal Ozunu assassin Takeshi (Rick Yune). Just as Mika is about to be silenced forever, Raizo saves her from certain death. But Raizo knows that Takeshi and the rest of the Ozuno Clan won't stop until he and Mika are both dead. Now, as Raizo and Mika are hunted through the winding streets of Europe, their only hope for survival is to trust one another and stay alive long enough to bring the Ozunu empire crumbling to the ground. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Ninja Eye Candy

    Okay let's be honest, no one is going to be buying this movie for the story. Ninjas fighting ninjas, ninjas fighting police, ninjas fighting gangsters, ninjas fighting spec ops. To that end I feel they play a little more with character development than they really need to and the few twists in the movie are about as predictable as could be expected. Where this movie really shines is the cinematography. Granted a few effects feel a little overused but ultimately they work. It's ninja-lover fan service eye candy, and to that end it works. Don't go into this expecting a long thought provoking story of intrigue and mystery and shadows. Go into it looking for cool sharp things flying through the air and a few matchups that you've been claiming, "Well I bet a ninja could beat that!" Now, through the magic of what feels like a cross between old school film trickery and bullet time, you can see just what would happen. Oh, and for the record, I WANT Raizo's brother's sword.

    Make no mistakes, this movie is bloody. Packed with Matrix-style martial arts and ninja stars flying everywhere, this is the ninja movie. Far from the almost seemingly campy Sho Kosugi movies of the 80's. "Ninja assassin" brings forth characters that are larger than life. I enjoyed Rain in this movie and did not find out until much later that he's actually a pop star in Asia. You would never know it. The story is good but the acting is somewhat mediocre in parts. However, if you're looking to a ninja action movie for great acting, you need to get your priorities straight. All in all, I enjoyed this film and I'm sure you will too

    Ninja Greatness

    This was instantly one of the best Ninja movies ever made. The action and ninja awesomeness in this movie rocks. Do not look to be reeled into a compelling story. Cause it really lacks in that. There are two different story's happening. One in the Past and one in the Present. The Present story line is horrible and i think takes away from the movie. The Past story line I think was good and pretty interesting. The acting is sporadic, some have skill and others don't at all. Bottom line, this movie is driven by non-stop Ninja action. Ninja fans will not be disappointed at all.

    I Really Enjoyed this Movie. There Was a moment at the end where i thought it could have been executed better, But Other than that, I watched this movie understanding it was going to be Full of Blood and full Of Brutal Action. That's Exactly what you get here. If Brutal Fight Sequences Mixed With Audio Effects That Really Stand Out (Ninja Stars) Interests You, You'll Thoroughly Enjoy the Scenes Ninja Assassin Has To Offer! This is an Entertaining Gore Fest Fit For Any Fan Of Martial Arts, Ninjas, Or Action.

    I am a movie collecter with well over 500 movies in my collection and i'm happy to say this movie is one of the best action movies i've ever purchased. If you like movies like 300, V for Vendetta and the Matrix, or any martial arts movies at all then you will definetley love this movie. It has everything from awesome special effects, great cinamtography and nonstop action scences with plentey of blood shed. I highly reccomend a purchase, epsically on blu ray

    Ninja Assassin - Not worth full price

    Posted

    I did not watch this movie in the theatres, so I bought the blueray. As far as movie experience-wise, I was hoping this film could bring me back to the days of the "American Ninja" series. Maybe it's because I'm older now that I didn't really get into this movie. If they came up with a sequel, I think I'd watch it if I knew there was more action and less story, since the plot of this particular flick was not the greatest.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    This movie is one I found on TV by accident. I watched it because of the fight and action scenes. If I were rating this on the acting, I'd give it one star. The fight/action scenes are some of the best I've ever seen! For the price of the movie at Best Buy, I would highly recommend buying this movie, if you only watch it once, it is well worth the investment of $4.00
