猛龍煞星 (1985)
Ninja in USA

The action -- which is surprisingly good, especially considering the awful lineage of films based around ninjas -- is bracketed by exposition scenes that are on the level of an Ed Wood fever dream, or maybe a bit below. This fact that is not helped at all by the absolutely godawful dubbing that sounds like it was recorded in a broom closet on your drunken uncle's "vintage" reel-to-reel machine. So if you're looking for something that could be describe as a true cinematic endeavor that remains faithful to its' artistic roots, then you had better look elsewhere for your potential viewing material. But if you're down for a trip down the jagged road of memory lane that leads to fond recollections of wasted afternoons sprawled on the floor watching Kung Fu Theatre, you're going to have a good time with Ninja in USA.
