I don't think any dictionary could offer up enough synonyms to describe how truly awful this film is. I've watched a lot of movies in my life -- most of them some degree of bad -- but this one ranks among the worst. The inane plot has some sort of low-rent James Bond wannabe going after a secret virus held by a group of white (as in Westerners) ninjas. At least that's what I think it's about. Almost every scene seems to introduce some new sub-plot and goes nowhere (this being one of Godfrey Ho's few original movies, I think he was setting out to just get as much footage as he could get to cut-and-paste into more films). And the fights? Poor at best -- but, then, how good could they be with a bunch of out-of-shape white guys in cheesy ninja outfits attempting to hit each other. My grandma would be more convinicing as a ninja, and probably more fun to watch.

This movie is so bad I developed a headache after the first fifteen minutes and it was torture sitting through until the end. Spare yourself some pain and skip this one.
