So our editor Myo and I went to see New Moon (he hasnt seen it, he loved it though) with the plan of theater hopping to Ninja Assassin after, and we did… we thought we would be seeing one good movie (New Moon) coming out extremely surprised to say we saw 2 great movies.
HOLY MOTHER OF GOD.
This is by far the best action movie I have ever seen. Well, it’s not the best action movie, it has the best action ive ever seen in any movie ever made. If you think 300 was hard-core, you have not seen what hard-core is, people. Rain who is the main character,blew my mind away. Rain, who is a Korean singer plays the Assassin, and he did an awesome job for a pop artist. After this movie i am 100% sure that every producer is going to have an eye on this guy. Ninja Assassin was his major theatrical hit. As for the movie, if you love blood, gore, and action wit a bad ass actor, this movie would not disappoint you. And yes There is a plot to the movie, which surprisingly amazed the heck out of me. Half of the scenes take place in Germany, so its really cool to see a ninja movie in Europe. But what i love the most was the twists and turns in the movie that will catch you off guard.
Its not the story thats its strengths, the plot is nothing great but i had low expectations for it till I saw the red band trailer.
There were by my count 14 fight scenes in this movie.
Im going to make a podcast dedicated to this movie, I will go into full detail about it there. Please go watch it now, it was amazing. As a movie it isnt anything big, but as an action movie- I fail to find better. I really have never seen a gorier movie in my entire life. The whole movei was filled with “OOHH!!!!”s and “JESUS!!!! JESUS CHRIST!!!!!” and a couple of gags from those weak stomached that threw up in their mouths.
I promise you, you will thank me if you werent going to watch it and I made you watch it from this positive review.
As a movie overall Ill give this a 75% C but as an action movie it gets a 100% A++++
NOTE: I will go into a detailed review on my podcast, it was really really great. Theres things about this movie that I MUST rant about. This is 100% rant material. (Yeah, it was that good)
And heres the trailer:
