YMMV / Ninja Assassin

  • Critical Dissonance: Professional critics panned the film with a 26% in Rotten Tomatoes (though most of them conceded that the fight scenes were at least good), but perhaps as usual, Internet Movie Database gave it a solid 6,4/10 and many good reviews.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: "The first breath I take after I kill you will be the first breath of my life."
  • Fridge Brilliance: Casting Rain as a Ninja. Ninjas are supposed to look like anything but killing machines, so that they can approach their target and flee more easily afterwards.
  • Narm Charm: The movie at no time tries to be anything other than what it is: a nice over the top kung-fu action flick.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Raizo's first target, an overweight cigar-smoking London Gangster, is Made of Iron and kicks the crap out of him bare-handed, all after getting knifed in the neck in the first moment of the fight.
  • Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny: Aside from the awesome ninja-on-ninja action, we get to see a face-off between ninjas versus soldiers. The soldiers win in the end.
