Early Screening: Ninja Assassin

VIFF continues, and with its continuation comes an early premiere screening of Ninja Assassin, James McTeigue‘s (V for Vendetta) new film about ninjas, revenge, kick-ass fighting and boatloads of blood. Needless to say, this was a crowd-pleaser. Awesome from the get-go, it packs the punches (and kicks, and blades, and other ninja weapon goodies) into a nicely stylized modernized ninja B-movie complete with an angry old sensei, a lost love, and a chance for redemption by the spilling of blood. Lots of blood. In fact, try counting the bloodsplosions (yes, bloodsplosions) and I promise you’ll give up within the first 5-10 minutes.

Official release date is November 25, so head out to the theaters then and git yer butt in gear for some fun!

Holy craziness. I’m not a connosseiur of CG stuff, but I’ve come across a fair amount, and this is without a doubt the most brutal, visceral, gory, violent piece I’ve ever seen. That said, I quite enjoyed the article and the fact that someone without prior experience was able to push the envelope so fully. Good inspiration.
