Closing thoughts………………………………………….OH MY! this movie is ridiculous fun. It starts real poor via the Ninja strike fight scenes, allows be hocolony, via rather bad staged fighting. However before as soon as they get to America it really starts to ramp up the fight choreography and all I deserve to say is “all fuckin hell breaks loose!“. The carnage and also mayhem is pumelted to the MAX. All the ninja tricks and also tools are thrvery own at you in as brutal manner as they have the right to. As blowpipes, swords, nunchaku, throwing stars and also that chain and axe point ninjas used dubbed a kusarigama. You acquire scantily clad girls, nooky scenes, gore, gangsters and also a fighting old lady. It’s wondercompletely bonkers and also a right riot of a laugh.
PS At time of writing Revenge Of The Ninja is on Netflix.
