As ever so often with the Ninja movies IFD Films & Arts produced starring Richard Harrison, this is actually two films rolled into one, or put differently, newly shot scenes of Ninjas fighting combined with an already existing movie that has nothing whatsoever to do with Ninjas.

The plot ?

The existing movie is an actioner from the Philippines (presumably) concerning one character called Billy, who comes home after ten years to find his family bullied by big boss Larry - in equal parts landgrabber, loanshark, drugdealer and armsdealer - and his gang. And since he's quite a fighter, Billy puts up defense and soon hits Larry where it hurts (figuratively speaking).  Actually, Billy wants to join the police force, but the chief of police, his girlfriend Lisa's father, thinks he's a lowdown cheap little punk and even forbids his daughter to see Billy.

Meanwhile, boss Larry tries to get back at Billy, and has his mum shot and his sister kidnapped. Since he can't get no help from the police and he can't even see his girlfriend, Billy starts drinking heavily, and soon enough picks up pretty Ivy and spends the night with her. But Larry's when goons see Billy totally drunk, they follow him to Ivy's appartment ... but when they shoot him, they hit Ivy instead - and now Billy knows he just has to fight Larry on his own.

Of course after many more fights and shoot-outs, Billy erradicates Larry's gang and defeats Larry, but the police arrives just before he can kill him ... too bad actually, because a badly wounded Larry still musters up enough strength to lift a gun and shoot Billy before being arrested by the police.

The second story concerns Ninja Master Gordon (Richard Harrison), who is challenged by one evil Ninja, Ivan the Red (David Wheeler) to fight for supremacy over the ninja world (or something). Gordon refuses, so each full moon, Ivan the Red fights and kills one of Ninja Master Gordon's Ninja friends. Finally, Ivan fights Gordon and Gordon wins.

A feeble connection between the two stories is made by claiming Billy was ninja Master Gordon's Ninja student (even if he does hardly any martial arts during the whole film, instead mainly uses firearms). Ivan also claims he has killed Billy, even if the film tells us otherwise ...


Yes, of course this is a bad film, the two stories cobbled together don't make much sense and neither story is exceptionally good (even if the old film features quite some comptetently staged shoot-outs). But if you are (like me) a movie masochist, you might actually enjoy the badly cobbled toghether plot, laugh at the ridiculous Ninja outfits and simply love the headbands the Ninjas are wearing, all saying Ninja (so as not to confuse them with someone else ?). Not the funniest of IFD Films & Arts maybe, but still worth a laugh or two.
