5.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy Ninja Brilliance, 4 Jan. 2004
This review is from: The Ninja Squad [1986] [DVD] (DVD)
This rating only applies if you like cheesy, poor and bad films. This is the first 'ninja' film I've seen. I was impressed.
Billy, a mysteriously Australian dubbed, young man returns from 10 years with his ninja master 'Gordon'. He defends his families home from a group of a gangstas lead by the ominous 'Larry'. Young Billy is forced to action using fists and M4 machine guns, but not swords. The police are powerless to help, because all the recruits are sissy college boys rather than fighters. Also Billy is in love with the Police chief's daughter (yes, after ten years)and he forbids his daughter from seeing him because he is a dangerous man.
Meanwhile on a seemingly unrelated matter Ivan the Red (a white, that is caucasian, ninja master) has challenged Gordon (Billy's master) to a duel. Until Gordon rises to the challenge he will kill the few ninjas left one at a time (all caucasian!?!). I won't ruin the ending though.
The fighting is terrible if athletic, the shoot outs are awful. The acting is dire as is emphasised by the really bad dubbing.
This film contains my favourite quote ever; "Billy, I just don't know how your ninja skills will help you get a job." You can always count on mums to bring up carrer oppurtunities regardless of the occasion.
I you can stand it, watch it!
