Ninja Assassin

Ninja Assassin ★★★

the ultimate 2009 movie. so sick

i always saw posters or maybe a glimpse of trailers for movies like this, but I was not allowed to watch them as a kid. kind of like the resident evil movies or underworld or splice. I just sort of imagined what they were; they must be so cool, so badass, so bloody and gory, with such a cool soundtrack. watching this was like finally getting to try hot fudge sundae pop tarts at age 19. do hot fudge sundae pop tarts kind of suck? yeah. are they insanely artificial with no nutritional value? yeah. but also damn, they were exactly what I hoped they'd be when I was 11
