I wouldn’t put too much stock in that headline, as I tend to get a little excited whenever something like “Alien vs. Ninja” comes barreling down the cinematic highway. Still, the plot is definitely cause for elation — think McTiernan’s “Predator” meets Kitamura’s “Versus” — and the action seems to be suitably cheesy and appropriately bloody. And while you might immediately dismiss the picture as yet another entry in the “people fighting in the woods” genre, one must never forget that the film features ninjas stylishly fighting a homicidal alien hellbent on destroying anything that crosses its gore-encrusted path. Sold!
