Director Isaac Florentine has been hit and miss for me over the years, but from the looks of this trailer for his latest, the Scott Adkins-starrer “Ninja”, he may have a hit on his hands. Thanks to reader Action Fan, we have the first trailer for “Ninja” below. You want ninjas? You got ninjas. You want Scott Adkins dishing out pain? You got Scott Adkins dishing out pain. You want ninjas with machine guns … er, what? What’s a ninja doing with a machine gun? Oh well, I’m sure there’s some context there. Hopefully. Maybe he just ran out of shurikens?
The film stars Adkins as a westerner named Casey, who is studying Ninjutsu in Japan when he’s 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. Somehow, cops, the mob, and a rival ninja enter the picture. Much death, sword slashing, and ninja ass kicking ensue.
Starring Scott Adkins, Tsuyoshi Ihara, Mika Hijii, Todd Jensen, Togo Igawa, Garrick Hagon, Miles Anderson, Valentin Ganev, Kenji Motomiya, and Nikolai Sotirov. Isaac Florentine directs.
