The Ninja Tril­ogy

Empire (UK) - - THE VIEWING GUIDE -

Can­non’s 1980s Ninja se­ries is a rare tril­ogy that im­proves with each in­stal­ment. En­ter The Ninja is clumsy tosh with a few good stunts and weird cast­ing (Franco nero as a ninja?). Re­venge Of The Ninja is out­ra­geous tosh with a lot of great stunts, cour­tesy of se­ries holdover chore­og­ra­pher/star Shô Ko­sugi. Ninja III: The Dom­i­na­tion is an ex­ploita­tion ac­tion-hor­ror-disco mas­ter­piece, with katana-swing­ing lucinda Dickey (the Elec­tric Booga­loo girl!) in leg-warm­ers as a dancer­cise in­struc­tress pos­sessed by a cop-killing ninja.
