Ninja Assassin: Fear Not The Weapon But The Hands That Wields It



Raizo (portrayed by Korean superstar Rain/Bi) is one of the world's deadliest assassins, having been kidnapped as a child and raised by the Ozunu Clan, believed by the world to be a myth. When Raizo's friend is executed by the clan, Raizo flees into hiding. He later reemerges, seeking revenge. Meanwhile, Mika Coretti (Naomie Harris) is a Europol agent who investigates money linked to political murders and finds that it is linked to the Ozunu Clan. She defies her superior, Ryan Maslow (Ben Miles), and retrieves secret agency files to find out more. The clan, finding out about the investigation, attempts to assassinate her, but she is rescued by Raizo. Hiding in Europe, Raizo and Mika must find a way to take down the Ozunu Clan



When I saw that this movie is rated PG-13 by the MTRCB I wonder why? Ninja films is supposed to be made for kids right? Well not. I found the answer to my question in the first few minutes of watching the movie. There's a lot of blood in the movie, and when I say a lot that means A LOT. Don't be surprised if you find the fight scenes similar to The Matrix, because they are the same team who did that. I really love the movie's special effects specially on the final battle scene in the movie, just watched it & you'll know what I'm talking about. This is the second movie for director James McTeigue who also did V for Vendetta back in 2006.

Because this is a ninja movie plus all those sharp weapons, be prepared to see people chopped in their half, limbs & arms flying off & buckets and buckets of too-red blood all over the movie. It's all done with a  tongue-in-cheek approach that it's hard not to laugh as you are simultaneously wincing. I think I can't eat spaghetti for a while now :) Regarding the final fight scene, I wonder why Raizo didn't do that earlier to defeat his opponent :)

Opening across the Philippines on Nov. 25, “Ninja Assassin” is a Warner Bros. Pictures presentation in association with Legendary Pictures and Dark Castle Entertainment. Thanks TV5 for my Advance Screening Pass at Glorietta 4 yesterday.
