Ninja Terminator (1985)

How do you review a movie like Ninja Terminator? The answer is not at all. Instead I'll give you these three screenshots which says it all. Brilliance, nothing less than brilliance.




But I have to ad that it's extremely entertaining, even more than you ever could the imagine. The fights are fun and with a lot of acrobatics, and the South Korean/Hong Kong co-production they used for the other half of the movie as some great fighting and seem like a good little martial arts movie in it's own right. But of course, what would Ninja Terminator be without Richard Harrison walking around aimlessly in a colorless apartment just waiting for his stand-in to show up, run out to the nearest park and do some smokin' Ninja-fighting?

Yeah, this Jaguar-guy rules! According to the IMDB his name is Jack Lam, but I have no idea if that's correct. Anyway, he can fight really good!

I'm sure all the right info is on Jesus Manuel's blog. He's made it into his life work to solve the mystery of all these cut & paste movies. I have the highest respect for him. I would probably go crazy if I watched more than 5 of these in a row.

Ninja Terminator was just a re-edition of a korean movie titled THE UNINVITED GUEST OF THE STAR FERRY directed in 1984 by Kim Si-hyun.
Other many movies from this director were bought by Joseph Lai & re-released adding new fotage directed by Godfrey Ho, Philip Ko & other directors from IFD.

My pleasure! I now added you to my links and updates here, I totally forgot that :)

I once asked you if you knew which monster movie they used footage from in Thunder of Gigantic Serpent, but you didn't know then. Any more info on that?
