Ninja Assassin Clip: Rain vs. Sho Kosugi

“Ninja Assassin” has already come out, but our UK viewers won’t be able to see it until January 8, 2010. It’s a good film, and I really liked it. It’s actually one of the better action movies I’ve seen all year, and once the inevitable Best Of 2009 list goes up, it’ll definitely be on it. For those who haven’t seen it yet, Empire has premiered a fight clip from the movie. This is towards the end, with Rain’s Raizo having returned to his old stomping grounds and has one last obstacle to overcome — his adopted father (played by the legendary Sho Kosugi) who raised him and turned him into an assassin. This is part of their battle. Great stuff. And if you’re in the States and haven’t seen the film yet, and you like martial arts action, don’t miss it, go see it now. I promise, you won’t be disappointed. Plus, a lot of the action takes place either at night or in darkness, so the big screen helps.

    Sweet clip. Sho looking as badass as ever. No, I’m sorry. MORESO!!!!

    • the strongest there is

      I needed to find a post to bring this up on, and yes sho kosugi is still the man, but I finally broke down and started ordering movies online and the sweetest of my purchases has come and I have enjoyed it thrice. I now own The Hunted, with Christopher Lambert. I am content with this world. I figured Dedpool and a few writers on this site would understand my glee. I also picked up a new anime called Sword of the Stranger. If you haven’t seen it. See it! Same goes for the Hunted.

        The Hunted is a criminally underappreciated action movie, and one of the better “ninja in modern times” film.

        Haven’t seen The Hunted in some time but yeah it was great. I actually have “Sword of the Stranger” on my list of badass anime to get.

    Hell yes Ded and Nix, I knew you would understand. God I love this site. lol. When I’m back on my feet, Im going to get my wordpress set up and start adding to the post. Uno ~ back to the scripts and couch.

      Definitely my top site next to joblo.com. This is usually the first so I can respond to comments. Scripts huh? Well now I’m intrigued.

      • http://www.myspace.com/kurotsurugi The_Strongest_There_Is

        Intrigued? Yes sir, I am gearing up a bunch of scripts and when they are complete, or at least one series of them are finished, Im fishing the market. Currently working on 2 sets of movies.
        ~~~The first one is a 3 to 4 movie storyline based off a group of hitmen – (yeah, I know, we’ve heard it before…but not quite like this).
        ~~~The Second group of scripts span 3 movies and End with the actual War between Heaven and Hell, which I think most people are too feminucca to actually do.
        ~~~There are 3 other scripts that stand alone.
        ~~~All the scripts above are stand alone, but can be pieced together for a much bigger meaning and wider scope. The idea is to create standalone films that can be pieced together to avoid the sequel disease but also offer up a deeper mode of thought for those that think entertainment is not enough. Basically Standalone Lost Episodes that give you the choice of the big picture when put together or good films that you can buy and not worry about it lol. If intrigued more, Hit me up on Gmail (TeamCannon6@gmail.com or Myspace.com/kurotsurugi…I’m also putting up a site with friends within the next month I think, and its going to be the beginning of the production house we are going to start for gaming as well as film. Anyway…back to the couch lol.
