I love ninjas, I don't know why. I bet it's hard to find someone that will say something bad about a ninja, though, because everyone loves them. I was a ninja for Halloween for three straight years! I didn't have a cheap costume either, I was rocking actual cloth, not those plastic pullover joints some of you rocked. (The breathability on those things must have been terrible, by the way). Anyway, peep these ninjas in the intro--they're fire. The best part in my opinion is when they synchronize dig and then jump in and cover themselves in those very same holes. Ninja timing is...unbelievable. So for a little background, this clip is from Ninja in the Dragon's Den (1982), which featured a ninja versus kung fu fighting style, and a plotline that revolved around a Chinese student defending his Japanese master from a rouge ninja out to avenge the death of his father. You know, the basic martial arts plotline: someone has beef over either the death of their father or master, and they take on a long, arduous journey to exact some vicious "payback from way back," in the words of Ice Cube. For a more in depth look at the film (click here). Factoid: The fight scenes from Ninja in the Dragon's Den were choreographed and directed by Corey Yuen of The Transporter.
