Movies Plot : Ninja Assassin follows Raizo, one of the deadliest assassins in the world. Rain the hero ninja barely says a word through the movie and when he does he sounds a lot like another immortal swordsman, Christopher Lambert.

Now he waits, preparing to exact his revenge. Each decapitation is enhanced with buckets of blood that will make any Tarantino fan giddy with dark and kind of disturbing joy. Michael Straczynski screenplay Stars: Rick Yune, Naomie Harris, Rain Storyline: Trained since childhood to be a lethal killer, Raizo has since turned his back on the Ozunu clan that raised him and now seeks revenge for their heartless murders.
Reviews: This is a movie about Ninjas doing Ninja things, being stealthy, practicing bad-ass moves, and killing lots of other Ninjas. Your suspension of disbelief will be pushed into overdrive but in the end, a movie about Ninjas doing Ninja things is always going to be at least decent. But haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them and vanishes. There are a billion plot holes here, Ninjas are un-killable until the movie decides they should be cannon fodder. .
It must be noted that the extremely graphic decapitations look great though. Teaming up with Europol investigator Mika, Raizo steadily butchers his enemies while inching ever closer to the long-awaited bloody reunion with his former master. Teaming up with Europol investigator Mika, Raizo steadily butchers his enemies while inching ever closer to the long-awaited bloody reunion with his former master. Sho Kosugi is excellent as the master ninja, and a great choice for throwback fans of much better Ninja films like Revenge of the Ninja last time I saw it I was 8 years old so…. Some of the scenes look absolutely unbelievable and the Ninja training ground almost looks like a student work for a 3D class.
Unfortunately the Wachowski siblings seem to be getting much worse at special effects. . . . . .
