Movie Reviews

Great Movie!
Eric | Massachusetts | 02/15/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie was inadvertently recommended to me by Amazon (probably because I bought a couple of Jackie Chan flicks)and immediatly I was transported back to 1984 when I used to watch this on HBO after school. I must've seen it about 30 times when it was on then. So I preordered without question when it came out on DVD about a year and a half ago. Sho Kosugi is amazing! I couldn't believe I never sought these films out sooner (me being a huge Bruce Lee & martial arts films fan). The acting is pretty laughable but what martial arts film has GOOD acting? The music wasn't bad and I loved the theme that played while Cho (Sho Kosugi) was breaking the seal on his Ninja katana in the temple. That scene to this day sends chills up my spine. I got a good laugh out of how Bradon (the evil masked Ninja) had so many weapons on him, including a life sized decoy of himself! Even the Indian from Grizzly Adams fame made a cameo as one of the mob boss' goons. The biggest laugh of all was the gang in the playground. An unlikely group consisting of a biker, a martial arts thug, a cowboy, and a jive soul brother! YMCA anyone? LOL! The blond floozie was a waste of space... As Cho said, I think she forgot her pants. And who can forget the acrobatic Oba-san (granny?) The fight scenes and use of the Ninja weapons made the film.
Not much on extras as there's just the theatrical trailer. It's in mono and panscan. Would've been nice in widescreen but what can you do? It's a B movie...
Now all they have to do is release the other movies on DVD like Enter the Ninja and Ninja III: The Domination."
We got ninjas, all kinds of ninjas!

"If you only watch one ninja movie all year, this should be the one. It's flawless. The action never stops and the kid who plays Sho Kosugi's son is especially good. He's a kid ninja! There's also a granny ninja! And the two main ninjas engage in some of the best fight scenes ever staged. Add to this a campy sense of humor(one of the Mob enforcers is dressed like Tonto and fights with tomahawks that he pulls from under his vest,and some of the fight scenes involve short funny slapstick bits. And did I mention the granny ninja?) and you have a movie that gives you a tremendous Bang for your entertainment buck.I'm going to say that this is THE definitive ninja film of all time. This is the movie that firmly established the ninja film as a legitimate sub-genre in American film."
Finally - the ultimate ninja film arrives on DVD

"Anyone who, like me, grew up watching this film will be celebrating at long last a DVD release, which is well overdue.The best news of all, is that for the first time ever, we are getting the most complete cut of the film to be released. Previous home VHS releases in the USA have had numerous scene cuts and it's even worse in the UK, where whole sections were cut out. However, the restrictions on film violence have changed over the years which means that for this DVD release, everything is in. By that I mean, the shuriken fighting, the face injuries, the nunchakus, even the ridiculous blood spurt at the end - all in.Whether these improve the film is debatable - but for Sho Kosugi and martial arts fans - at least we are now getting the whole picture.The DVD features the original trailer - which contains yet more scenes that would never make the final cut - and are forever lost. Although the DVD is light on extras, it does present the film with a very crisp and wonderful newly mastered DVD print - everything looks better than ever before.It's still silly. But it happens to be the best ninja film ever made, and Sho Kosugi's finest hour. A must-see that goes into the collection with the Bruce Lee epics."
Ashley Ferrare does Pantyhose Karate !!! YEEEEEEAaaah
CANUT REYES | San Antonio, Texas United States | 07/22/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The thing I remember most about this movie when I first saw it in the 80's on cable tv was the part where Cathy in the film played by Blonde floozy Ashley Ferrare does a Karate work out with Sho Kosugi and when she does her first series of high kicks the viewer thinks she is wearing nothing under her Karate top but upon closer inspection you can Easily see that she is wearing a flesh colored pair of pantyhose w/out panties underneath and her crotch is covered tastily by the pantyhose.I thought this was the Most erotic martial arts scene between a man and woman ever at the time !!! Its still kind of Sexy to watch ~ Mmmmmm"
