Despite being the second entry in the Ninja trilogy, this film has nothing to do with neither the film that preceded it (Enter the Ninja (1981)) nor the one that followed it (Ninja III: The Domination (1984)), other than the fact that they starred Shô Kosugi (but playing a different character).

Even though the film takes place in California, every vehicle has a Utah license plate. See more »
The UK cinema version was cut by over 5 minutes and the video received a further 57 secs of cuts. Among the footage removed were all shots of throwing stars and nunchakus, plus additional cuts to kicks, blows, a blowpipe scene and the fight in the gymnasium. The cuts were fully waived for the 2011 Optimum DVD. See more »
First, the good part. No one, and I mean NO ONE, has such a threatening visage as Sho Kosugi when angry, injured, determined, or otherwise moved.
Towards the end of the movie, we are given a wonderful showdown between two ninjas. One good, one bad. The bad ninja employs robotic limbs, life-sized replicas of himself, and an endless array of exotic weaponry. NONE OF WHICH HE HAD WITH HIM WHEN HE ENTERED THE BUILDING.
What fun! Classic lines, gloriously bad acting, and a marvellous soundtrack.
I love the dragged-by-rusty-old-van sequence. Poor Cho. Poor, lacerated, belaboured Cho.
