After waiting for 2 weeks, I finally found time to watch Ninja Assassin. I’ve been hearing mixed reviews about it. Oh well, at least now I can judge for myself if the movie is good or not.
The story of Ninja Assassin is about Raizo, an orphan who was raised by the Ozunu clan and who is one of the world’s deadliest Ninja Assassin. I found this story to be ordinary because haven’t we seen a variation on that kind of story all the time? Then there was the female lead’s acting and her character’s boss’s acting. Both I think were weak.
When I think about it, the character Raizo, who was portrayed by actor Rain is one of the major reasons why the movie is watched by many people. In my humble opinion, Rain being there is a saving grace for the movie.
The movie is not for the weak at heart. For one thing, i found it to be too gross!! There was too much blood all over the movie! There was even a scene where Raizo killed a ninja and put her dead body inside a washing machine. The blood ended up flowing freelyâ€¦. yeeeeeeeeewwwwwwww!!
There are actually some lessons hidden behind all the bloody awesome ninja action scenes. For one thing, we women really are the most powerful gender in the world. That’s mainly because men will do anything for the woman they love hehehe 😛
The other lesson, I wanna leave with you while I finish this review. No one can ever stop us from sticking to our own beliefs & principles even if we don’t have anyone to support us with it. As long as we know that it is right, then please don’t let majority stop you from doing the right thing.
My rating for Ninja Assassin: 2 out of 5 stars.
