Review in a Nutshell: A passion project made by film-makers whose reach far exceeded their grasp, Miami Connection is an earnest and enthusiastic entry in the excesses of Eighties independent film. What other movie features drug-dealing, motorcycle-riding ninjas squaring off against a tae kwon do rock band?

Get ready to walk the Road to Hell, because Shogun Assassin (aka Lone Wolf and Cub) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the British DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film,

featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: A mash-up of the first two Lone Wolf and Cub films, Shogun Assassin stands on its own merits thanks to its original contributions, such as the weird electronic soundtrack and Daigoro’s voice-over. It’s an excellent introduction into the world of chanbara and jidaigeki films.

It’s actually pronounced LUM-bear.

Buy those tickets to bunraku, because The Hunted (1995) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  The Hunted (1995) is a movie with an identity crisis.  Half of the film is a modern samurai vs ninja drama, a nihilistic tale of men with antiquated values carrying out their ancient war in the streets of modern Japan.  The other half is Christopher Lambert being a total goober.

Fuel up the jet pack and unpack the robot ninjas, because RoboCop 3 is definitely not the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  Urban revolutionaries, machine gun arm attachments, and Mohawk-sporting goons…somehow it all goes terribly, terribly wrong in this film directed by Fred Dekker and written by Frank Miller.  Not even Rip Torn can save this movie.

Chevy Nova?

Strap on your bandana, because Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  Nostalgia notwithstanding, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles holds up surprisingly well for a children’s film.  The action and humor are solid, and the special effects and puppetry still look great even 20+ years later. 

This movie contains:

Ninjas.

Casey Jones.

Underage Smoking.

Sam Rockwell!?!

“Kwantsu, Dudes!”

Wax up your surf boards, because Surf Ninjas is The Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting and his Ernie Reyes Jr fetish.

Review in a Nutshell:  A goofy premise, good action choreography, and jokes that work more often than not make Surf Ninjas a surprisingly entertaining film.  All that and it has Leslie Nielsen getting crushed by an elephant, too.

This movie contains:

Ernie Reyes Jr.

Ernie Reyes Sr.

Cyborg Samurai Leslie Nielsen.

Sho Kosugi, You Are Not James Bond.

Break out those exploding shurikens, because Rage of Honor is (definitely not) the Greatest Movie EVER! 

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download  the review.

Review in a Nutshell:  Crippled by terrible camera-work and Sho Kosugi’s broken Engrish, Rage of Honor is not an ideal ninja movie.  Still, we at the Greatest Movie EVER! Podcast are thankful for ninja movies in general.

This movie contains:

FALSE ADVERTISING!

Sho Kosugi, Gentleman Spy.

Camo-Pajama Jesus Ninjas.
