Ninja Assassin trailer

07.23.2009

NINJA ASSASSIN MTV Movies Blog just landed both the first poster and trailer for the upcoming Larry and Andy Wachowski produced and James McTeigue directed actioner NINJA ASSASSIN.

In it, Korean superstar Rain stars as an orphan raised in a ninja assassination clan but when they betray him, he goes on the run and starts killing people in incredibly stylized ways.

The action in the trailer is basically ninjas by way of the THE MATRIX. Is that the big reveal at the end? That ninjas control the Matrix? Not the machines or the pompous Architect?

Check out the trailer below. And check out the rest of the poster to the right by clicking on Rain's knife. The assassination begins November 25th.

Extra Tidbit: Rain's real name is Jeong Ji-Hoon.

Nothing pumping me up from this trailer. Too much CGI infused into this and not enough raw classic action. Nuff said.

I really wanted to like this...

I had high expectations for this flick but this trailer was a big let down.Hopefully they can polish up that government-cheese CGI and somehow surprise me. Will def still go see it.

Just doesn't set right..

I like mindless action, but the movie at least has to know that it's being a little silly. This movie looks like it's totally serious, which may not be a good thing when the cheese-factor settles...

AGREE WITH haakim the beam

This thing has Batman Begins + Leonidas early days footage + mindless action writen all over it. The narrator even sounds like the 'fake' Raas Al-Ghul. That being said, this is bittersweet because it's nice to see the Bros and McTeigue back at it again...but I expected more of a real(ish) fight & stunts deal...sorta like a Jackie Chan flick, y'know? Low on the intense CGI, pumped with more stunts and actual fight choreography. That would've been aweome(r) than this.

The narrator in the trailer sounds EXACTLY like Splinter from those TMNT movies... ;)

That said, it's been a while since we had a NINJA MOVIE, so I'm hip to seeing what comes from this...bring it on!

Why is the trailer not working? I'm just seeing a iced tea add and then the video ends and says "replay video".

I can't get this trailer to play. All I get is a lipton tea commercial, and then it says "replay video". What the hell?

Finally, a ninja movie done right??

Looks entertaining in the sense of mindless action.

I wonder how Steven Colbert will feel about his arch nemesis (RAIN) playing a ninja...

Sho Kosugi is in this film. Not sure how big his role is, but IMDB has his character listed as Lord Ozunu. THIS WILL BE AWESOME!

I'm sorry, but how the hell is this the return of the 80s ninja films. It looks like it's gonna have too much cgi and crazy action sequences. Looks like a combination of Street Fighter, The One and The Matrix.

Sho "The Muthaf**in' Man" Kosugi! He was so due for a come back. Looks good and this kid Rain looks good too considering he's some pop star.

Looks a cross between Hitman and Streetfighter Ledend of Chung Lee. Can't they just give old style cops and robbers action film without the betrayel bits in every movie...
