Nukenin (2009)

Nukenin (a.k.a. Rogue Ninja, Fugitive Ninja) is a Japanese Chanbara Film (Sword Fighting) from the director of Alien vs. Ninja. This is a low budget Ninja film takes place during the 16th century and deals with internal conflicts of a ninja clan.

I admit I shut this film off during the middle of it as it just didn’t seem to be going anywhere at all.  This is saying a lot because I like low budget ‘B’ movies.  The action was fun to watch but I need a plot that is a bit thicker than watered down chicken broth.  I may try to finish it some other time. Available to rent from LoveFilm an Amazon company.
