When I first saw the trailer for this movie, I thought it looked pretty interesting. The notion of growing up and being trained to be a ninja as a kid sounded very intriguing. With all these “assassin” type movies out there, it kind of made me wonder – are these people real?
Let me just warn you about the film – it feels very low budget. From the very beginning, it just felt that way. There is some corny dialogue and some scenes that just makes watching the movie feel like a B movie. (If you’ve seen the film, you’ll know what I’m talking about).
Once I accepted that, it made it easier to watch the film. Going into it, I knew it was not going to be an over the top movie – I didn’t have high expectations for it.
Surprisingly, I found myself entertained. All through the film, there is a lot of action and lots of large explosions. The fighting scenes alone were very entertaining to watch.
As for the story line, it was ok. I think it could have been done better and presented well. Though, the concept was very interesting. I just think they could have gone deeper into the story and the background. (If you’ve seen this film, I think they did a good job of presenting the story well).
Overall, I think this was an ok film to watch. Would I recommend paying to see it? It depends. If you’re really in the mood for an action type movie and there’s not much else out there you’d like to see, I’d say it’s a toss up. If not, I’d recommend waiting till it comes out on DVD.
