Mika learns that Raizo is an orphan raised by the Ozunu Clan in Japan and brutally trained since childhood to be a heartless killer by his master Ozunu (Sho Kosugi). Raizo has been attracted by the kind Kiriko (Anna Sawai) since when he was a boy. When Kiriko decides to runaway from the Ozunu Clan, she is captured and executed by Raizo's ninja brother Takeshi (Rick Yune). Soon Raizo turns against Ozunu and cuts his face. Now he is also hunted down by his ninja brothers. Mika convinces Raizo to meet Maslow, but they are betrayed. Will they survive the attack of the Ozunu Clan?
"Ninja Assassin" is a gore and cartoonish action movie that follows the violence of Takashi Miike. The plot is flawed, the characters are poorly developed but the action makes this movie worthwhile watching with violent fights like in a video-game, great choreography and lots of gore. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Ninja Assassino" ("Assassin Ninja")
