Movie Review: Ninja Assassin (2009)

13 Dec


Yesterday, I went to this new movie called  Ninja Assassin, after watching the trailer I thought it will be one of the worst movies ever,but the fighting scenes were so awesome to change my impression into this movie. This might be one of the best action movies of this year.

In action movies, I don’t care that much in the story, I care about the fight scenes and how they made it interesting in every second you will watch it. One of the best fights is the one with fire candles distributed around. Another thing that I hate about martial arts movies is the flashback of the hero when he was a kid, thank god they did not spend a lot of time on that boring shit, they focused in the good stuff. Although making the full cast speak english specially the Asians was not suitable for the flashback scenes.


The story basically is about an a ninja assassin called Raizo who turn his back into his orphanage assassins family, and while a black woman is doing research about him, so that’s why he must die from his family, cheesy, I know!!! There is alot of nonsense happening during the movie, for example the researcher turns out he is the head of the commandos team, but that does not make any difference to me as long as the fight scenes is great.

Adding the special effects was brilliant, I heard that the director of this movie is the same director of Speed Racer which had extraordinary special effects. also the blood scattering all over the place reminded me of the movie 300.

Overall if you like pure action movies full of blood and suspense, then this will be one of the best movies in 2009 for you.

 I would give it 8 out of 10

    Wow I just watched this movie. I was like you and was almost one hundred percent sure this would be one of the worst movies I had ever seen, so I don’t know why I rented it.

    I was right this movie was HORRIBLE!

    So why did I think it was so freaking AWESOME! Because it was!

    I think the movie is full of pointless actions although they are pretty cool.
    But seeing Rain covered in blood with that hairstyle is just amazing *O*
