Yeah, I caught this one.
I love martial arts movies. I love well-choreographed fights. I love ninjas. But this flick was basically a video game. No heart, no soul, just one dead ninja after another and the "hero" has ZERO charisma. I totally understand why it's getting trashed by critics.
Another thing; choreographed fights are one thing, but the stop/go, super slo-mo/rapid speed-up knee jerks this flick executes nonstop are a PAIN IN THE ASS. Whatever happened to just showing guys fighting in real time, so we can really see how good they are without the aid of camera trickery?
Yeah. It's crap.
