For writers and gun buffs: The firearms used in movie Ninja Assassin.

Guess what, boys and girls? If you’re a writer who has a lot of gun play going on in your action/adventure story, or if you’re into guns and ammo and you want to get up close to all the firepower that was used in Rain’s movie Ninja Assassin (2009, Warner Bros.)—the first Hollywood film with a South Korean actor in the lead role—there is a place you can get some information and do just that.

The Ninja Assassin page on IMFDB (the Internet Movie Firearms Database) lists everything from the real weapons, like:

The gold Desert Eagle Mark XIX that “Hollywood” used (and lost, along with his hands!), and the Mossberg 500 Cruiser that a poor pitiful Yakuza guy tried to use before getting sliced and diced in the first scene…

The SIG-Sauer P228 handguns and the Heckler & Koch MP5K sub-machine guns used to arrest “Raizo”…

The Glock 19 that “Mika” used to get the ninja off the top of her car the hard way…

The DefTec 37mm launcher that helped the cavalry blast into the Ozunu base…

To the fake weapons, like:

The fictional X26 Taser used to take “Raizo” down.

This is only a taste. There many more weapons listed, with close up, detailed pictures of each and where they fit in the story (even one of Mika’s, mistakenly switched out. Continuity error!). A nice idea and a very cool page!

You can visit the Ninja Assassin weapons page on IMFDB here.

For those of you who are into Raizo’s bladed chain, the highly featured non-firing weapon in the movie, my article from May 2010 is HERE for your reading pleasure. Enjoy.

    Fascinating page. I had no idea anyone even cared that much about movie weapons, but obviously they do.
