Inane Dialogue

"That Could Have Been Dangerous"
Masked, the Kendo teacher's girlfriend attacks him. He fights back furiously, and after knocking her to the ground, she takes her mask off and says "Don't! It's me!"

His response? "That could have been dangerous."


Ninja Mud Wrestling
That ninja training is so rigorous. It's noted for its rigor. And muddiness. The music sounds like a cross between the theme from Rocky and Wide World of Sports. This clip has now fulfilled your Recommended Daily Allowance of Female Ninja Mud Wrestling.

Smithee Award Winner! Worst Picture

They're Just That Good
This is the climactic battle between the good ninja and the head of the bad ninja clan. Fought almost entirely in the dark. With ninja techniques so stunning that if we showed them to you, we would have to kill you.
