Review by Chucky
I usually enjoy a lot of Cannon Films' braindead action extravaganzas but unfortunately Enter The Ninja falls short of being a good movie. The problem for me is that this ninja movie doesn't have enough ninja action in it.

It starts off well with a ninja chase but then we are treated to almost an hour of middle-aged white men squabbling back and forth with an aggressive business man over land that he's trying to acquire by any means necessary. It's not until near the end of the movie that we finally have Sho Kosugi filling the void of an actual ninja running around but by that time it's too late to save it from being anything more than an okay movie with a hint of nostalgic charm. There are fight scenes spread throughout the film, though aside from the opening and closing ninja sequences, the majority of those fight scenes are far from special or entertaining.

There is a ridiculous slow motion death scene near the end which has made its rounds on the internet in meme videos and such. So there's that, I guess.
