Revenge Of The Ninja (1983)

Rating: **
Cast: Sho Kosugi, Kane Kosugi, Keith Vitalli

Marginally entertaining lightweight ninja fluff about a bad ninja smuggling heroin into the states and a good ninja (Sho Kosugi) who has to stop him and avenge the death of his family. They also systematically use every ninja tool and trick in the book exactly once. Silly and poorly scripted, but Sho Kosugi and his son Kane perform admirably and have a strong screen presence. Their conviction alone raises the film from dreadful to tolerable.
