DVD Cover and Release Date for Scott Adkins’ Ninja

Scott Adkins’ “Ninja” may never see the inside of an American movie theater, but that’s not the case in Malaysia, where the film is scheduled for a theatrical run starting in October 22, 2009. Also, the film is already up for pre-order in the UK via the online etailer Play.com, with a November 23, 2009 release date, and you can check out the DVD cover for it to your left.

A westerner named Casey, studying Ninjutsu in Japan, is asked by the Sensei to return to New York to protect the legendary Yoroi Bitsu, an armored chest that contains the weapons of the last Koga Ninja.

Of course, if you buy the DVD from Play.com, it’ll come in Region 2, so you’ll need a multi-region DVD player to actually watch the movie. Consider yourself warned.

Thanks again to the boys at Scott Adkins Fanz for the heads up.

In case you missed it, here’s the trailer for “Ninja”:

    The old and die hard action stars.
    Gary Daniels, Jason Scott Lee, James Lew, and the guy who played Shang Tsung in Mortal Kombat.
    They need to get Tony Jaa in some of these films. His acrobatics and skill are phenomenal. As well as his friend and a couple of the other Thai action stars.
    And lets not forget Keith Cooke. He was quick, agile, and powerful.

    Just watched this in a Malaysian cinema today. Fight scenes were quite good but of course all exaggerated and the hero would be tired out if he were to jump around so much. The most ridiculous thing is the attack on the group of ninjas who would be smarter using ranged weapons instead of getting killed like flies in melee combat against a stronger opponent – Ninjas are supposed to be practical. Heroine was useless with all her Ninja training. *sigh* Too much emphasis on revenge too. >_< Oh well! Beginning Japanese martial arts scenes were quite good for a movie that is not going to see the light of the day in American cinemas though.

LOL. Glad you enjoyed it, I can’t wait ti see it myself. I’m sure Ninja Assassin is even more over the top and ridiculous.

      Which film are you talking about? “Ninja Assassin” or “Ninja.” I didn’t think “Ninja” used cgi for anything, so I’m guessing it’s the former?
