“The comments Iu0026#39;ve seen for this movie are the sole reason I signed up at IMDb; in order to rebuke some of the harsh criticism given. I havenu0026#39;t seen the Manga cartoon, or read the comic if there was one – so I say unabashedly that I loved this film. I think at least one other comment made was a reflection of bitterness about not having the film remain faithful to the animated series, in whatever form it exists.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThat said, for those who are new to it all, I HIGHLY recommend this film to action lovers. I was thoroughly entertained from start to finish… from start to finish, I say. Martial arts movies come in three u0026quot;fuu0026#39;su0026quot; by my classification: u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;Regular-Fuu0026quot;: the kind that the incomparable Bruce Lee brought us followed by acts like Chuck Norris, Steven Segal, Jean-Claude Van Damme and the like; clean, physical and grounded.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;Wire-FUu0026quot;: This sub-genre has been best epitomized in films like u0026#39;Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragonu0026#39; and u0026#39;Herou0026#39;, often used in Jet Li films and even u0026#39;The Matrix Trilogyu0026#39;. Itu0026#39;s fast, hyper-acrobatic and aerial.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;Super-FUu0026quot;: This is where SHINOBI comes in. Fighters have very unique abilities that are often much faster and deadlier that Wire-Fu styles. This kind is fantastic, exceptional, and ethereal. If you could not suspend belief enough to watch a film like u0026#39;Spidermanu0026#39;, thereu0026#39;s little chance you will like SHINOBI.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNow, for the special effects fighting nuts like myself, this film is a really good one. The storyline is most reasonably adequate, I felt . It is terse (stoic) all the way through, and has the action to match… and the acting really compliments that air. And boy, do some of the actors look their parts! There are no wasted sequences of nothingness in this film; the story is coherent, especially when I consider other movies of the same category, like u0026#39;The Duelu0026#39; and u0026#39;The Promiseu0026#39;. On this point I disagree with some other comments again.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI donu0026#39;t know if a sequel was planned but I really hope so. I fully enjoyed the film, especially after expecting so little from what I initially read here!”
