The inception of Ninja mania!
Well here it is – this is the catalyst for the 1980’s ‘Ninja Craze’ that swept the west by storm and spawned literally hundreds of similar themed movies from all around the world.

In addition this also happens to be the film that propelled its REAL star (an actor who was actually playing the role of the movies main villain!) to super stardom literally overnight (if only for a modest while) and made him forever synonymous with such roles. Who was this actor? Well it was of course the legendary Sho Kosugi!

While ninja had previously reared their heads on a number of occasions in western cinema, (probably most famously in the classic James Bond outing ‘You Only Live Twice’) THIS was the film that really catapulted them into the movie going publics eye. Such was the demand for ninja themed shenanigans following this films initial release that producers Golan-Globus were sagaciously swift to rush two sequels into production, namely The Revenge Of the Ninja (probably THE seminal 1980’s ninja flick) and the sadly embarrassing Ninja 3: The Domination, again, both starring Kosugi (albeit in the more welcome role of the good guy)

But enough of the history lesson ..what of the quality of the film being reviewed here I hear you cry? Well as it happens, it’s rather solidly entertaining stuff!

Franco Nero plays Cole, a westerner who through hard work and determination has against all odds (not to mention certain persons wishes) ascended to the top ranks of his ninja clan. Traveling to the Philippines to visit an old friend Cole finds that his deadly skills come in mighty handy when he is forced to stand against some local hoodlums. (In a morally ambiguous subplot he also manages to sleep with his best friend’s wife – but we won’t go there ..!!!)

In fact these hoodlums are merely puppets belonging to a much larger crime syndicate headed by a particularly ruthless boss (the always fun to watch Christopher George hamming it up wonderfully!)

Seeing that Cole is laying waste to his plans, the crime lord takes drastic measures and hires Cole’s old nemesis from Japan (Kosugi) to take care of him.

Inevitably the two ninja must square off at the films climax with only one left alive by the final credits but which one shall be triumphant? Well you can probably guess ..

Aside from the odd casting of Nero in the lead (a great actor in his own right but woefully miscast here owing to the fact that he has blatantly no martial arts skills whatsoever) – it has to be said that this is a great movie and is intrinsic viewing for fans of the genre.

Of course the main attraction here though, is undoubtedly Kosugi himself, who succeeds in carrying a wonderful silent air of extreme menace in every single scene he appears in, in addition to entertaining us with some excellent martial arts demonstrations.

Great stuff!

Too hard to resist.
The Cannon Group’s initial entry into the martial arts / action genre is gloriously cheesy and silly stuff, so much so that it’s hard to believe that they didn’t have their tongues in their cheeks to some degree. Italian superstar Franco Nero is oddly but amusingly cast as Cole, an Army veteran who’s spent time in Japan studying to become a Ninja. Afterwards he visits his old Army friend Frank (Alex Courtney), who’s got a smoking hot young wife, Mary Ann (Susan George) and a beautiful house & property. However, all is not well in Frank’s corner of the world as criminals have taken over the area, and the big daddy of them all is super greedy Venarius (Christopher George, who’s a hammy delight), who wants to get his sleazy hands on Frank’s property. Good thing Frank has Cole on his side, and Cole takes on all comers, including his old rival from his training days, Hasegawa, played by Sho Kosugi. Sure, this may not be “Enter the Dragon”, but as directed by Cannon head honcho Menahem Golan, it’s very agreeable entertainment that, at the very least, is never ever boring. Champion martial artist Mike Stone, who authored the story, is also the fight and stunt coordinator and double for Nero, and he makes sure that the action scenes are all reasonably exciting. Slick, colourful cinematography, by David Gurfinkel, and plenty of local flavour make this a pleasure to look at, while the fun factor remains high throughout. The movie offers so many laugh out moments that it’s hard to imagine people not chuckling once during a viewing, especially as Hasegawa evilly chortles while doing dastardly things, or as Cole dispatches a very large amount of utterly worthless thugs (one of them played by future American Ninja Michael Dudikoff in an uncredited bit). And while none of the acting is exactly of the Oscar baiting variety, it’s still enjoyable. Susan George is a fine scenery attraction, Will Hare has a high old time as jovial street vendor Dollars, Constantine Gregory, Ken Metcalfe, and especially Zachi Noy are a hoot as assorted henchmen of bad guy Christopher George, who has one of the most epic final scenes ever for this sort of thing. Nero may not be terribly expressive in the lead, but he *is* still fun to watch. You take all of that into account, as well as a pleasingly large body count, and it adds up to a fine diversion for genre fans. Eight out of 10.
