Best of it's kind. Period.
It's nice to see Kusagi get the spotlight. There's some great fight scenes and a cutthroat opening, but it's a largely forgettable action flick..
Omg that's so cheesy.. even for an eighties film this was just.. it never captered me, or that eighties classic feeling..
In the opening scene, a child gets an arrow through the head by the evil ninja clan! The whole family is wiped out except for Sho Kosugi flees to America with his infant son. Years later, the evil ninjas track him down setting up the climatic battle of ninja vs ninja on the roof of a high rise building. 80s badass ninja action.
This movie is everything you ever wanted in an 80s Ninja Exploitation film. If you didn't want that, well, then you probably shouldn't watch a movie called "Revenge of the Ninja."
Sick awesome film!!!
Revenge of the Ninja (1983) ??
Ninja master's family is murdered, he comes to America where he finds a friend has betrayed him. This leads to a final showdown between the old friends. It is what it is.
The story is textbook 80's and Cannon. The premise of an art gallery been used as a front for a smack wholesalers makes no sense. Some of the Ninja gadgets and kills are comedy gold. I nearly coughed up a lung when the assassin goes into the jacks in his 9-5 clothes and then changes into his Ninja gear does the kill and then changes back. The little kid and granny are the balls and the latter kicks some major ass. A serious twitch off Ashley Ferrare.
Decent enough Ninja action flick. No link to the first movie although this is part 2. Sho Kosugi is from a Ninja clan and his family members are killed by other ninjas. Only his infant son survive. His friend Arthur Roberts who is trying hard to convince him set up Japanese doll gallery in USA manage to do so after the massacre. 6 years later, Sho is doing well with the doll gallery. The son (Kane Kosugi) accidentally knock down a doll which has heroin inside. Ashley Ferrare is the friend and student of Sho. She is working for Arthur to take care of the heroin business. Arthur want to sell the heroin to mafia Mario Gallo but the latter refuse to pay. Arthur dons his ninja suit and kills a few of the clan. Mario got the attention and want to deal but he send his men to steal the dolls in the gallery. Sho happen to pass by and he fight those thugs but 1 last one manage to get away. Arthur infiltrate into the gallery and is piss the dolls are stolen. Sho's mother try to fight him and was killed. Kane saw the identity and manage to escape. Arthur hypnotize Ashley to capture the boy. When she did so at the dojo after Kane didn't want to kill her, Arthur intend to kill them both. He attack Mario HQ. Sho receive a call from Ashley and now he has to break seal and don his ninja suit for revenge. Arthur kills Mario and gang and also Sho cop buddy. The 2 ninjas fight it out at the rooftop. Kane manage to escape the sauna room and save Ashely. Before the cop arrive, Sho has kill Arthur.
An Americanised ninja action movie from the Cannon group that for the right audience should be a decent watch. The plot's not worth mentioning, but the action is at least enjoyable, and the movie overall is fun, a little silly and makes Godfrey Ho movies look really, really bad in comparison.
