Fresh Reviews of Ninja Assassin

~Cloud Cover by Terri :-}, Managing Editor

Although it’s true that some U.S. Clouds were around when Rain made his debut in South Korea in 2002, most of us only became aware of him after he starred in a little Hollywood ninja flick called Ninja Assassin.

By now, all of you are well aware of the production details of Ninja Assassin:  a project of the Wachowski brothers of The Matrix Trilogy fame; produced by Joel Silver and Grant Hill; directed by James McTeigue; filmed in Berlin, Germany; had budget of $40 million; grossed $61,601,280  worldwide.  Yeah.  That sort of thing.

You also likely know that most critics panned the film almost immediately upon leaving the theaters while most moviegoers actually praised it as paying good homage to the classic ninja flicks of the 80’s (with an anime-like CGI kick).  That is why whenever we run across a review we think got it right, we can’t wait to share it—like this one by Carl Ingebretsen, an aspiring writer/screenwriter, who reviewed the film on Letterboxd yesterday.

Okay, now all of you go watch your DVD of Ninja Assassin again.  Come on.  You know you wanna.

  3. I wish I had discovered him in 2002, but it was not meant to be, when he said “exit here” in Ninja Assassin, I was head over heels, my kids had to get me tissue from drooling so much. What an awesome movie, and as a fan of the old school ninja movies, and Sho Kosugi, I had to say, despite the overabundance of blood, this movie kicked A**, majorly. It was so awesome and Rain’s performance (opinion despite my obsessively delusional love for him) was so good and he dedicated so much of himself, he deserved more than an MTV Award, but it is what it is, he has my loyalty and fandom for the rest of his life, and career, daebak!


  4. And so it began……my “love affair” with Honey Love that is. My absolute favorite movie couple… enamored with these two.


  5. Love that man
