Product Description

Ninja Assassin follows Raizo (Rain), one of the deadliest assassins in the world. Taken from the streets as a child, he was transformed into a trained killer by the Ozunu Clan, a secret society whose very existence is considered a myth. But haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them, and vanishes. Now he waits, preparing to exact his revenge.

In Berlin, Europol agent Mika Coretti (Naomie Harris) has stumbled upon a money trail linking several political murders to an underground network of untraceable assassins from the Far East. Defying the orders of her superior, Ryan Maslow (Ben Miles), Mika digs into top secret agency files to learn the truth behind the murders. Her investigation makes her a target, and the Ozunu Clan sends a team of killers, led by the lethal Takeshi (Rick Yune), to silence her forever. Raizo saves Mika from her attackers, but he knows that the Clan will not rest until they are both eliminated. Now, entangled in a deadly game of cat and mouse through the streets of Europe, Raizo and Mika must trust one another if they hope to survive, and finally bring down the elusive Ozunu Clan.

Ninja Assassin stars Korean pop star Rain (Speed Racer) as the central character, Raizo; Naomie Harris (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End) as Europol researcher Mika Coretti; Ben Miles (V for Vendetta) as Europol Agent Ryan Maslow; legendary martial arts performer Sho Kosugi (Revenge of the Ninja) as the ruthless leader of the Ozunu Clan; and Rick Yune (Die Another Day) as Raizo’s rival, Takeshi.

By The Truth TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
As a no-brainer action flick and visual spectacle, Ninja Assassin is a cut above above other sword wielding martial arts films.

The film is very gory - delighting in over top, gushing blood, and limb and body part severing. In fact, the opening scene made both my flat mate and I jump out of our skins. In some ways in fact, this is almost some sort of martial arts horror; with the way the ninja hide in the dark and then pounce, delivering scares, and the afore mentioned gallons of blood.

Aside from the gore, Ninja Assassin is just an all out martial arts action. There is a lose sort of detective story and back story going on throughout the film, but really it's just all about the action - of which there's plenty, and which is pretty good too.

The fight scenes aren't outstanding technically, but they are dramatic and over the top in a sort of Hollywood way: with CGI effects used on weapons, and to create visually satisfying shots, splattering blood, and dramatic decapitations - that sort of thing. And as for the use of weapons, it's much more a martial arts film where steel is the focus as opposed to feet and fists, and the array of ninja weapons used are cool to watch.

Blu-Ray provides the perfect platform for all these effects. My copy was crisp, clean, and great to watch - giving you a chance to really take in all the effects and fights - even though a lot of them happened at night or in the dark. The colours were vibrant in the opening scene and in the monastery flashback scenes, and all in all, I think this format really compliments the film.

The acting leaves a lot to be desired but it's bearable.

5.0 out of 5 stars enjoy it for what it is 12 July 2010
By geordie
Format:Blu-ray
I've read quite a few of the reviews on this site and have to say it never ceases to amaze me what people expect why they buy a move like this. Just so we are clear, the film is called 'Ninja Assassin' and its about a secret society of ninja's who carry out assassinations for 100lbs of gold, and then I read reviews saying 'you have to suspend belief...' - you don't say!! It is not meant to be a true story and quite frankly if you bought this thinking it had any kind of basis in fact or you were looking for something deep and meaningful then more fool you, I would suggest you read the product description a little more carefully in the future.
Its not going to win any oscars and I fully understand that it wont be to everyones liking but I think its grossly unfair when people award 1 and 2 stars just because they failed to realise what the movie was about prior to watching it. My 5 stars may well be a little generous but I just wanted to balance the scales a little bit.
All I would say is that if you liked the scene in Kill Bill (volume 2 I think) when Uma chops limbs off left, right and centre in the restaurant then this is probably for you as the violence is not dissimilar although perhaps even a little more blood thirsty. As far as I am concerned its a good switch off movie to stick on when you've had a few beers and if thats you're kind of thing you'll love it, if you want something 'believable' then perhaps look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars OTT CGI yessss! 22 April 2012
By KM #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
If you like martial arts movies you should love this one and especially on blu ray.

This movie is about a clan of ninjas who are trained from children for one reason, to become the ultimate assassins for hire.

Without spoiling it for you. . . .one of them escapes as he's sick of the life he's being forced to live but it's one of those once you're in you can never leave efforts! A bit like where I work :)

So, present day and he's an adult and still being chased down by the ninja clan he left! They never give up.The visual and audio CGI fest on bluray is brilliant. Whack your speakers up and prepare to duck, dive and dodge the hundreds of whizzing shurikens, Katanas, knives and Kurasigama (which he is rather tasty with!) and every other martial arts weapon you could ever think of! All great stuff indeed!

The speed and skill and stunts involved in the fight scenes and the number of combatants at any one time, ie-the bloke versus all the ninjas, is fantastic (in my opinion).

A great movie, you won't be dissapointed.

Format:DVD
Other reviews have done an excellent job on this so far to paint it as the high speed action fed story you come to expect from movies such as The Transporter. This is the Asian-fuelled equivalent, blended with a little bit of Commando (Arnie in the 80's) and a bucketload of stylised gorey action straight from The Matrix and V for Vendetta.

The action scenes are a good mix of wire fighting, and stylised kung fu infused with a few recognisible Ninja traits such as the throwing stars - and there's plenty of them. Not the most believable, but enjoyably hectic all the same.

Dialogue isn't fantastic, and the plot isn't particularly novel, but it's enough to form a solid background for the star of the show to strut his stuff. Korean Jung Ji-Hoon (or "Rain") is that star - and is suitably ripped to play the role of the uniquely skilled lead.

Downers: combat speed, darkness, and general arrangement during action sequences can leave you very disorientated as to who is where, what and when. The speech in the movie is also not the best, with a mix of accents that are sometimes hard to discern.

If you enjoyed the first Matrix film, Kill Bill, or Jet li, this is definitely a movie for you - just don't expect any great wisdom.

An enjoyable but mindless gory ninja action/revenge flick. It's a bit too OTT, relying on too many quick cuts and CGI for my liking, lacking the finesse of other martial arts films... Read more
