I realized last night that what the world sorely needs is another slate of ninja movies. And no, I don’t mean ironic or jokey ninja movies. I mean full on, Shô Kosugi, ass kicking ninja movies. I watched every ninja flick I could get my hands on back in the day, and I think I’m a better man for it.
Sadly I never encountered the Richard Harrison laden awesomeness of 1986’s The Ninja Squad which, judging from the trailer, was made for approximately 3 dollars. Give this high kicking, machine gun totin’ trailer a look see and tell me that movie didn’t just immediately jump to the #1 slot on your ‘movies I’m going to get drunk to’ list. From this short snippet, I’m able to tell that this movie is chock full of useful ninja facts, like say the one about how ninjas wear a lot of clothes that explicitly say ‘Ninja’ on them, just in case the squares don’t know who exactly is about to go all feudal on their sorry behinds.
