Ninja Assassin is little more than a sporadically diverting disposable movie that will probably spawn several straight-to-DVD sequels. The butcher's shop window is still a more fulfilling proposition though.
There are some stand out moments of stylized action. Shame it lacks self awareness. Excess is its downfall and the improbable and wildly over the top action grows wearisome and dull. Quite often, less really is more.
