Ninja Assassin is the reason I’m cursing out at a lot of people right now(and it’s not who you think I’m cursing). So, yes the movie falls short on a lot of aspects. There is close to no plot to this movie. It started slow(doesn’t mean the pace was bad), a lot of flashbacks and scattered action here and there. The first 30 minutes was a little distracting but once I got used to it, I started to enjoy the movie. Naomi Harris did great, Rain was so awesome and badass that right now I want to be a good ninja like him. However, the rest of the cast failed to impress me. And the chinese girl relating Rain’s charcter’s sub-plot made close to no sense at all. Anyways, when I knew enough about the character’s backstory and stuff, the real thing started. Kick-ass action and gore fucked my brain up and in a good way. It’s been a long time since I saw such badass action. This is why I love ninjas, these people can do all sorts of cool things others cannot.
So, this is no V for Vendetta(same director), but if you dig movies like Kill Bill then I’m quite sure you are definitely gonna like this. Yes, the story was not all that awesome and yes the dialogues were off one or two times. The fact is you either love it or hate it. I’m game for all kinds of sick action so I loved it. 6.5/10.
And by the way, I’m cursing at the ninjas, I just want to be like them and the sad truth is I will never be. Share what you think.
