Ninja looks like a throwback to the low-budget, martial arts movies of the late 80s and early 90s. It could easily be one of the movies Beverly Hills Ninja was spoofing. Thatís not a knock on it, we could do with a little more of that style of filmmaking. Whereís the modern day Roger Cormans? Why not a return to the days of American Ninja? Not everything has to be Hollywood glossy. Not every movie needs excessive lens flairs.
It stars a frequently shirtless Scott Adkins, as Casey, a westerner studying Ninjutsu in Japan. Heís sent by his Sensei to New York, where heíll protect legendary weapons from a host of bad guys. See? Itís Beverly Hills Ninja.
The movieís first trailer has arrived, and itís flat out, pretty cool. Especially if you have a hankering for late 80s martial arts flicks. Take a look:
