Movie Review Corner: Ninja Assassin

The title alone made me want to go see this movie. Who honestly doesn’t love ninjas, right?

This movie is definitely for those who just need to turn their brains off for a while, enjoy some martial arts insanity, and don’t mind buckets of gore. Yes, gore. There was so much blood being sprayed EVERYWHERE in this movie. It took me by surprise how many dismembered limbs were flying around and how much brains I saw while watching this movie. Their weapons sliced through bone like it was made out of butter. As one person puts it: “Ninja Assassin opens with a scene of such unmitigated gore as to classify itself more as splatter film than action flick.”

The most interesting parts are those that show the young Raizo learning the way of the ninja. It’s a brutal upbringing, but one would expect so of trained assassins. Doubt Splinter was THAT strict.
