NINJA (ninja: revenge will rise) (2009 U.S.) D: ISAAC FLORENTINE W: MICHAEL HURST W/P: BOAZ DAVIDSON P: LES WELDON/DANNY LERNER
Scott Adkins (a charisma vacumn) stars as an orphan raised by the Koga Ninja clan in Japan. You`ll think Godfrey Ho is back and working for Nu Image as good ninja Adkins must fight bad ninja Tsuyoshi Ihara (following Sho Kosugi`s career path?) in New York (obviously sets in Bulgaria). Ihara is working for corporate cult Illuminati types, and wants to get his hands on some sacred ninja weapons. Mika Hijii (from ALIEN VS. NINJA) is wasted as the love interest who also studied ninjitsu, but needs to be rescued by Adkins all the time instead of kicking ass. Competent in terms of action coreography, but why a kids movie plot with adult-orientated graphic CGI bloodlettting? With Todd Jensen.
