But haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them and vanishes. A young ninja turns his back on the orphanage that raised him, leading to a confrontation with a fellow ninja from the clan. But haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them and vanishes. 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. We see his tormented childhood days as a ninja trainee; his only emotional refuge, an orphan girl who, like Raizo, is part of the clan.
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. One day, his friend tries to escape from the harsh ninja way of life and is executed, prompting a change of heart in Raizo who eventually betrays his clan after a narrowly botched mission. Characters are, at best, cardboard cut outs and at worse painfully bland. Will they survive the attack of the Ozunu Clan? Some cheesy bits here and there require a certain suspension of disbelief but the film's portrayal of ninjas in general is gritty and realistic yet preserves their mysterious and legendary status. Raizo could not run far enough, Lord Ozunu sent ninja assassins to kill him but he always managed with great flair and fighting technique to kill those sent to kill him. Ninja Assassin started with the young Raizo who had been raised by the Ozunu Clan as a deadly Ninja assassin, he ran from them after his first kill.
Forget Naruto and all those brightly dressed, magic power spewing ninjas of recent anime. Raizo is especially underdeveloped despite being the main character. Ninja Assassin is the butt-kicking, face slashing answer to all that. Now he waits, preparing to exact his revenge. A respectable re-imaging of a dated genre and 99 minutes of non-stop violent escapism once you look past its narrative flaws. Though Ninja Assassin is no work of storytelling perfection, it delivers what it promises: lots of fights and lots of violence.
. Teaming up with Europol investigator Mika, Raizo steadily butchers his enemies while inching ever closer to the long-awaited bloody reunion with his former master. On a whole, Ninja Assassin feels like a hack-and-slash video game come to life from the first skirmish to the climatic showdown involving modern day special forces taking on an army of ninja warriors. It is refreshing too to see that Raizo is not some invincible killing machine as he does tire and he does take his fair share of hits, even going down a couple of times. Now he is also hunted down by his ninja brothers. Simply put, the unoriginal storyline is highly predictable and filled with B movie clichés from stem to stern.
Mika convinces Raizo to meet Maslow, but they are betrayed. A young boy Raizo is transformed into an unstoppable killing machine by the Ozunu Clan, a secret society whose very existence is considered a myth.

Ninja Assassin hit the big screen in 2009; it was directed by James McTeigue who is known for such films as V for Vendetta and The Matrix. Thankfully some erratic camera work especially during the scene where Raizo is being chased through a busy street does not feel distracting but enhances the frantic and lightning fast pace of the fights. He has been living a quiet solitary life, trying to live a normal life his dear friend Kiriko only dreamed of behind the high walls of their hidden compound.
None of them come across as emotionally engaging. When Kiriko decides to runaway from the Ozunu Clan, she is captured and executed by Raizo's ninja brother Takeshi. Raizo has been attracted by the kind Kiriko since when he was a boy. Every thing else ends up playing second fiddle to the fights. He teams up with Mika feeling deep inside that she is different from anyone he had ever met reminding him of his childhood friend Kiriko.

Teaming up with Europol investigator Mika, Raizo steadily butchers his enemies while inching ever closer to the long-awaited bloody reunion with his former master.
It is a definite step down from the philosophical Matrix trilogy or the sophisticated and political V for Vendetta.

In Berlin, the Europol researcher Mika Coretti shows evidences of the existence of a network of assassin ninjas in the murder of politicians to her chief Ryan Maslow. Lord Ozunu kills Mika, or does he really; Raizo taps into his inner Ninja and masters the shadow blending technique killing Lord Ozunu as the retreat burns to the ground. Soon Raizo turns against Ozunu and cuts his face. Rain worked very hard preparing for the physical aspect of this film, working with stunt and action choreographers Chad Stahelski, Peng Zhang, Jon Valera and Jonathan Eusebio.
The Ozunu Clan is so proficient at keeping their existence a secret that most people think they are only a myth, but the moment Ozuno assassins kill Raizo's friend, their days in the shadows are numbered. Blood flows like rivers as Raizo proceeds to disembowel enemies en masse; definitely not for the squeamish. She is hunted down by the ninjas and protected by the mysterious ninja Raizo.
