He eventually abducts Namiko and demands turn the armor to him. Casey, a Westerner studies Ninjitsu in Japan. Although Mazasuka tries to practice harder and longer than Casey, Namiko is taken to the American. Now on the run, hunted by both his former comrades and a special international task force, Raizo finds an unlikely ally in the form of Mika Coretti, a Europol agent who is close to exposing the secret existence of the Ninjas and hence targeted for assassination. It delivered that and more. First off I would like to say that anyone who thinks this movie sucks because it has very little plot is an idiot. It delivers on its title and the trailer's promises and more.
Barely surviving, he falls over the edge of the skyscraper and into a nearby pool. Known for their previous work on the Matrix Trilogy and V for Vendetta, the Wachowski brothers, Joel Silver and Grant Hill produced the film. Now he waits, preparing to exact his revenge. During transport back to the Ozunu, Raizo uses his ninja techniques to heal his own wounds. Michael Straczynski of Babylon 5. And it isn't a Twilight that's for sure.
It makes no sense whatsoever. You want to see a stacked gravure idol as a dojo master's daughter who always needs to be saved just because she's a stacked gravure idol and even though she's a ninja, too, then this is the movie for you. A respectable re-imaging of a dated genre and 99 minutes of non-stop violent escapism once you look past its narrative flaws. Ninja Assassin is a 2009 American martial arts film directed by James McTeigue. The lead actor Rain does a good job and the overall storyline was fairly well written. I think I expected a bit of a throwback to the classic 80s ninja movies but it really took it beyond that realm and made into something new and awesome.
One day Masazuka attacks Casey and Casey defends himself scarring Masazuka. We see his tormented childhood days as a ninja trainee; his only emotional refuge, an orphan girl who, like Raizo, is part of the clan. Casey tells him if he wants he'll have to fight him for it. It's not just that it makes little sense. Raizo saves Mika from her attackers, but he knows that the Clan will not rest until they are both eliminated. If you're not into very violent movies, this isn't for you.
The jealous Mazasuka visits Casey in his room that night to debase him, and Casey is provoked on hearing offending remarks about his family background. Characters are, at best, cardboard cut outs and at worse painfully bland. Branded as a traitor, Kiriko was caught and later executed in front of Raizo by her elder ninja brother Takeshi Rick Yune. Masazuka, another student thinks he is that person but the Master has an affinity for Casey. Just Click the download link in the post and watch Ninja 2009 for free.
Written by Trivia Korean pop star had no martial-arts experience prior to filming. Stars: Rain, Rick Yune and Naomie Harris. What the movie does do well is show you ninjas killing the crap out of everyone on screen. Imagine slow motion shots of a man diving out of the way of 100's of ninja stars, slicing people in half with samurai swords and being born out of shadows literally. But haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them and vanishes. Mika, seemingly fatally wounded, is in fact saved by a quirk of birth: her heart is actually on the opposite side of her chest.
It's way better than Casper Van Dien's suckfest Mask of The Ninja and in my opinion slightly better than Ninja Assassin. Mazasuka becomes a killer for hire and combines ancient fighting techniques with modern Western technology such as night vision. The reason why Ninja Assassin is so friggin cool is because you know that the people making this movie had one thing in mind. Will you remember that you really enjoyed watching it? Let's be honest, you didn't have any interest in this movie for its stern position on global politics and the humane treatment of thoroughly owned ninja victims. Mazasuka does indeed ambush the school and kills the sensei. He later climbs the same wall Kiriko did while trying to escape in the past, and looks out at the surrounding countryside. Ninja Assassin is the butt-kicking, face slashing answer to all that.
The Master tells Casey and his daughter, Namiko to take the armor to America were it can be kept from Masazuka. Blood flows like rivers as Raizo proceeds to disembowel enemies en masse; definitely not for the squeamish. Casey and Mazasuka duel with sticks before their sensei and the other students. Reviewed by loogenhausen 6 The highest praise I can heap upon Ninja is that there is absolutely no fat on this thing. And in their Master's possession is an Ninja armor with some legendary weapons which goes to a deserving person.
Although Mazasuka's final stroke was prevented, he is banished from the school by his sensei. I went in with an open mind, after only seeing one movie trailer I didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised I liked it as much as I did. In Berlin, Europol agent Mika Coretti has stumbled upon a money trail linking several political murders to an underground network of untraceable assassins from the Far East. The scene switches back to the past where Raizo is seated in a car and is instructed by Lord Ozunu to successfully complete his first assassination mission. He decides to organize a regulated fight the very next day. I was really worried about them messing the genre up by being too modern. But then I see Scott Adkins do an amazing aerial kick and I know I'm not watching Michael Dudikoff.
However, this is shown to be in the past. Now let me tell you what Ninja Assassin isn't. Even dead people know this to be true. Sonu Delhi falls in love with Jhanvi Tomar and how he manages to save his love. Ninja Assassin is a fun guys night out type movie, at least that's how I saw this movie. It was action packed and pretty intense, squeezing in an actual storyline with all the gore was pretty seamless. 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.
