Ninja Assassin

Critics Consensus

Overly serious and incomprehensibly edited, Ninja Assassin fails to live up to the promise of its title.

  • A garish and poorly filmed chop-socky frolic that makes about as much sense as an Escher painting viewed through Vaseline-smudged Ray-Bans.

  • Ninja Assassin is final proof that the once innovative Wachowski Brothers have indeed lost their creative mojo.

  • The fight scenes are uninspired and I suspect post-pubescent audiences will be very bored.

  • The fight scenes are mostly great. And Rain, so dashing in Speed Racer, is something to behold. His precisely rippled and defined body is awe-inspiring.

    January 22, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It truly wouldn't take much - a minor re-edit, a few arch looks to camera, a wiseacre sidekick named 'Shortballs' - to inch this utterly mystifying throwback into spoof territory.

    This won't win awards but if you're in the market for some crazy ninja action, this is your film. Gory, excessive amounts of action and a story with no real purpose or point, this film nails what American Ninja and all those other mediocre 80s films could only dream about. Not a great film but a film that services a core fan market. Just a shame it wasn't successful, it deserves another film. 26/04/2019

    Lots and lotsa fight scenes (with lotsa them in the dark so's you can't see nothing) and lots and lotsa blood, lots of it, buckets and buckets, body parts flooding in blood, blood, blood, blood, and some dialogue on the side. The only movie I ever saw made for vampires and not about them (like a sort of Vampire Food Network). Of course I realize that some may find what I said to be attractive. To them I add: "You'll be sorry."

    Crazy, Amazing, Quality Blood & Gore Effects I've ever seen. The story was decent and the fight scenes were epic, Go Ninja, Go Ninja, GO!
