User Review

Dudikoff never moved like that!

Rating: 7/10


"Ninja" does something that is hard to do…. it updates something from
the past but still retains a nostalgic feel about it. Sometimes it felt
like it was 1985 and I was a kid sitting on the living room floor
eating popcorn and watching American Ninja. But then I see Scott Adkins
do an amazing aerial kick and I know I'm not watching Michael Dudikoff.
"Ninja" takes a similar formula and story from those ninja movies from
the 80's and combines it with a hard hitting and acrobatic fighting
style seen in today's martial arts movies. This movie was a lot of fun
and if you grew up watching ninja and martial arts movies in the 80s
like me, you will definitely enjoy it.
