Film: Ninja Assassin

Korean star Rain plays Raizo, an orphan who, along with others was raised to become a Ninja and carry out high profile assassinations.

Naomie Harris (28 Days Later) is a government agent who stumbles across some evidence that compells her to investigate the legend of the Ninja.

What follows is a series of action scenes in which Rain gets to show off his considerable skills as he attempts to eliminate the clan that raised him.

In an inspired piece of casting 80's Ninja movie stalwart Sho Kosugi steals the show as the brutal Father figure to the young orphans he trains.

This is a bit thin on the ground plotwise and the acting, Kosugi aside, is just plain dull.

More suited to dvd so wait for that, get the beers in, switch off your brain and enjoy.

    It was quite fun but I thought it should have been better.
