One fun-looking martial arts movie coming out soon is "Ninja Assassin." It stars Korean mega pop star, Rain and comes to us from director James McTeigue as well as The Wachowski brothers, the team who brought us the excellent comic book adaptation, "V For Vendetta."
Raizo is one of the deadliest assassins in the world. Taken from the streets as a child, he was transformed into a trained killer by the Ozunu Clan, a secret society whose very existence is considered a myth. But haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them…and vanishes. Now he waits, preparing to exact his revenge.
In Berlin, Europol agent Mika Coretti has stumbled upon a money trail linking several political murders to an underground network of untraceable assassins from the Far East. Defying the orders of her superior, Ryan Maslow, Mika digs into top secret agency files to learn the truth behind the murders. Her investigation makes her a target, and the Ozunu Clan sends a team of killers, led by the lethal Takeshi, to silence her forever.
Raizo saves Mika from her attackers, but he knows that the Clan will not rest until they are both eliminated. Now, entangled in a deadly game of cat and mouse through the streets of Europe, Raizo and Mika must trust one another if they hope to survive…and finally bring down the elusive Ozunu Clan.
As with a lot of these types of movies, the plot doesn’t really matter as action takes the forefront– and judging from the kick-ass action, that certainly looks to be the case with this film.
Thanks to the guys over at Collider we have six new clips from "Ninja Assassin," all provided within the one video player for your viewing convenience.
I’m really digging the effects employed during the fighting, particularly the swooshing and swiping of the blades, which are reminiscent of the knife scene from the aforementioned "V For Vendetta."
What do you think of the latest clips from "Ninja Assassin"? Do you think Rain fits the role? Are you excited for this movie?
"Ninja Assassin" opens on November 25, 2009.
More news to come! Catch ya' later!
