Bloodthirsty doesn't even begin to describe the level of splattering carnage found throughout.

The film has all of the elements I want out of a ninja movie, which is basically a crap load of ninjas and an excessive amount of ninja fights. In this incarnation, apparently every time a ninja does pretty much anything, blood explodes.

Ninja Assassin re-opens the door to a genre that has either been absorbed into conventional action movies via pilfered fight choreography or completely forgotten as a viable, creative foundation for interesting stories.

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.

If you go to a movie called Ninja Assassin--mayhem is what you signed up for. If you expected Crouching Tiger, then please check your meds.

As a viewer, your only task here is to watch, eat popcorn, and laugh, jump or shriek%u2014whichever works for you%u2014whenever you see heads roll, limbs fly or or hemoglobin spurting.

Rarely as fun as its title suggests...

Never tries to be anything but a slick update of the cheap martial arts thrillers distributed by Cannon Films in the 1980s...

Hey, how many ninja movies are there for comparison? Plenty of action and an interesting hero plus above-average special effects. I wouldn't recommend putting this film up against Citizen Kane, of course. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Delivers everything you'd expect from a film titled "Ninja Assassin."

James McTeigue ("V for Vendetta") directs this unpredictable acrobatic display of violent spectacle that carries its themes of loyalty and skill in a slick flatpack of fast-twitch precision.

...little more than an action programmer, but a worthy entry rather than something destined for the DVD clearance bins.

While there is more to Ninja Assassin than endless gory excess, what's remains is like an arterial spray afterthought.

...a tight-lipped, tightly wound adventure that mostly satisfies audience demand for throwing stars, swinging swords and disemboweled bodies, at least when you can see them getting disemboweled.

This movie knows exactly what it is: Gonzo silliness about bodies turned into human salsa.

A balletic collection of blood-spattered martial arts moves that's bound to delight fans of the genre.

Ninja Assassin is wildly improbable and completely unrealistic, but it's also bloody good fun.

Turn your brain off and turn up the blood splatter.
