The only way I would have accepted Ninja Assassin's title (surely competition for Doctor Who's The Deadly Assassin in the redundancy category) is if there were an assassin actually killing ninjas. DING! You win, Ninja Assassin. You win. Korean pop star Rain plays a fairly convincing martial arts master who has turned against his ninja clan and is killing them in the incredibly violent ways they taught him. Naomie Harris is the Europol analyst who starts to believe in ninjas, and finds herself in a position where she needs his protection. Lots of action with some imaginative gore gags and special ninja power eye candy, which I think is what you'd be looking for in this kind of movie (if you take your glasses off, you can just about imagine it as Wolverine flick). If you've started asking how ninja clans can possibly be a secret given their public action scenes during the course of the film, you're clearly thinking about it too hard. Just enjoy shirtless Rain and/or people getting chopped into bits (depending on your particular interests) and shut up.
@hulsbosch that is so true. i only enjoyed this because of the fight scenes' choreography.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
