    The Wachowski siblings produced and James McTeigue directed Ninja Assassin is probably the closest we will ever get to seeing a movie adaption of the Ninja Gaiden games.

    The South Korean popstar and actor Rain stars as Raizo, a rogue Ninja who fights against the members of his old clan who serve as secret assassins for governments and anyone with enough gold.

    And Raizo slices his way through dozens upon dozens of foes here. With frequent use swords, kicks, punches…

    Wait what?

    When I first watched this I absolutely hated it. Goofy over the top action, terrible dialogues, way too dark scenery that made it hard to see what's happening and way too much CGI blood fountains. Somehow down the line the world changed to this movie's favour: First I got myself a big screen HD TV and a BluRay player, so I'm perfectly able to see what is going on and second I have seen so many movies with…

    James McTeigue somehow manages to make ninjas boring. Also, Naomie Harris is really fucking annoying in this.

    What it lacks in effective story it makes up for in gallons of blood. The action in this movie has a serious case of 300-osis (I would use -itis, but that means inflammation, not condition), but there are some really cool sequences. Not enough to say it's a "good" movie, but James McTeigue delivers more of the action and style from V For Vendetta. Just... not as well.

    The film that puts the ass in assassin. The McTeigue/Wachowski nexus create something that's a slicker version of an old Golan/Globus movie, but overwhelm it with CGI blood and weapons. This is presumably to hide the deficiency of leading man and pop star Rain (another method is to film the fights in near-total darkness). The script is awful and the supporting cast look embarrassed (Naomie Harris is so far from her Skyfall awesomeness I didn't realise it was her until…

    A few good ideas in action but overly cheesy and poorly executed.

    Really awesome and stylish ninja movie. Although i am no expert at knowing about ninjas, this is how i imagine them to be when the word ninja is ever mentioned.

    Lot's of blood and lot's of cool fights and a really fun movie to watch.

    Pretty cool throwback to '80s ninja movies with lots of terrible CGI blood.

    There are three things that hurt me the most in the Ninja Assassin:

    1. The CGI blood and effects that were comparable to a mediocre pc game from the 90s.
    2. The fact that ninjas in some scenes are godlike-skilled and untouchable -- but the moment later they die like flies.
    3. The fact that ninjas *are* assassins, making the title redundant and dumb.
