Review: Enter the Ninja (1981)

A pretentious piece of ninja-action-shit that falls on its own sword and dies a slow and forgetable film death.

“He’s called “The Hook” for obvious reasons. But when he had both of his hands, he was a real son of a bitch. No he’s a lot worse”

Cole has just gotten the highest regards for his ninja skills. When he visits his old war-buddy, he finds himself in the middle of a fight between his buddy and some land grabbing oil barons.

To bad we’ve seen this story told again and again. Franco Nero keeps telling us: “I’ll be back”. He’s not Arnold, and his character did not come back (thank God!). Nero is probably the one man you want to come back, but not as a ninja.

Kino Lorber presents us with a low quality action that deserves a good HD. They deliver us a quality transfer, but not any extras.
