The Ninja Trilogy
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.
