    I have the Shinobi no Mono box set of four movies. AWESOME! The Sonny Chiba ninja movies, including Shogun's Ninja, are also good.

    For a historical view of why ninjutsu became popular in the 80's, you must see Enter the Ninja, Revenge of the Ninja, Ninja III: The Domination, and Chuck Norris in The Octagon. American Ninja is worth a view while drinking.

    You might also try The Master, a short-lived TV series, and Raven, another TV series from the late 80's early 90's.

    Some other films of note: the original Killer Elite (James Caan takes on ninja with a cane and Hapkido), Elektra (for the eye candy), The Hunted (Christopher Lambert runs afoul of ninja).

    The recent Ninja Assassin was pretty good. I'm really hoping the proposed Wolverine sequel brings him face-to-face with the Hand, and also that the GI Joe sequel will improve the hot ninja on ninja action.

    Mind you, I'm not ranking these things in any category that the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences would consider for an Oscar.

    My main memory of 'the master' was Lee van clef doing a flying kick over/at a helicopter. Did I dream that?

    Speaking of sonny Chiba, has anyone seen his film 'the power of aikido'?
    I guess it sucks, but it's got sonny Chiba and aikido, so it ticks some boxes for me. Is it worth buying?

    If by "hilarious" you mean you find bad special effects, terrible writing, hackneyed damsel-in-distress plots, and horrendous martial arts choreography funny, then, "YES!"

    I particularly liked the image of three trained ninja assassins being backlit against the paper screen door. Epic Fail for advanced ninja training!

    I meant hilarious, because I saw the MST3K version of it, and not the original movie.
    So, in that sense it was hilarious.

    Which is why I embedded that version, I thought that was obvious.

    I was in middle school when that series came out. It was awesome to my adolescent mind.

    I was in college when MST3K showed it, and I had a whole different appreciation.

    Don't bring me down, man. Don't bring me down.

    I also liked the recent Ninja Assassin. A few years ago my wife bought me Ninja in the Dragon's Den and was surprised to actually like it. It features a scene where a man is defeated by the sight of a woman's breasts.

    However, forget ninjas! I just saw Ip Man on TV and that chain punching muthafukka just totalled 10 Japanese dudes all wearing black belts and Ip Man was real so it must be some kind of fly on the wall documentary. So take up the Wing Chun and never fear another ninja.

    Actually sod Wing Chun I remember this film with this bad ass called Leo something had 299 of his mates kick the **** out of these freak foreigners it took 9 trillion freaks to beat them. They did some Greek **** that totally ruled the battlefields so I would **** off to Greece and join in the riots. You may learn something.

    One of the all-time great ninjutsu movie techniques...

    Probably NSFW
