I went to see Ninja Assassin recently and I actually went without expectations. I did not read any reviews. The only thing I knew were from the trailers I had seen online and on the television.
Short Movie Summary:
The movie is about a boy becomes part of a clan that trains children to be ninjas. The child, named Raizo, eventually rebels against the clan and goes off on his own, vowing one day to have revenge. Eventually the murders of people assassinated by these ninjas draw the attention of Europol and involve Mika, one of their investigators. She and Raizo meet while the clan is trying to kill her.
The movie was definitely action packed. I know my boyfriend enjoyed it immensely for the fighting scenes. Ninja Assassin was very violent and bloody. The plot was okay as it was easy to follow. There were no ‘Matrix’ moves, but there were a lot of great martial arts. Some of the effects were a bit lacking, like the shadows, but I believe they were dramatized. It was kind of cool seeing the ninjas come out of what seemed nowhere. In reality, most people would at least see an outline of the body. So, the movie did emphasize on the mysteriousness of ninjas to a point.
If you like martial arts and do not mind the blood, then I definitely recommend seeing the movie.
