Ninja Assassin, the perfect blending of two things I love in one movie, martial arts films, and Wachowski Brothers films finally has a trailer out and it looks great. Watch the Trailer Below.
The action is stunning. The part that gives me a lot of hope is the closing scene with the car. This tells me that the Wachowski Brothers not only worked toward a stunning film with great martial arts but they are also going to use the Hong Kong style. Blending in moments of humor into the stunning martial arts scenes to help balance out the tension and mood.
The tools of the trade for Ninjas is one of my interests particularly because they are more fluid in form and style. This is due to the the focus being on success lending to a plethora of modified weaponry. I like seeing the creativity that goes into those modifications. Imagine my delight watching this trailer when I got to see in just a few minutes a lot of different weapons... I wonder how that sword works.
The poster below is another great example of the weapons featured. The Wachowski Brothers did not go for the traditional sword wielding picture but instead are showing off that beautiful modified version of a Kusarigama using a nice dagger instead of a sickle.
Story: Raizo, kidnapped as a child and raised by the Ozunu Clan, is one of the world's deadliest assassins. When Raizo's friend is executed by the clan, he flees into hiding. Meanwhile, Mika Coretti, a Europol agent, retrieves secret agency files on The Clan. Finding out about the investigation, The Clan attempts to assassinate her, but she is rescued by Raizo. Reemerging, seeking revenge he must find a way to take down the Ozunu Clan.
Ninja Assassin is due out November 24th according to the poster which is in conflict or has changed from the original believed date of November 25th. I'm not going to hold my breath on either dates and expect latter clarification because the 24th is a Tuesday which is not a typical release day though it is just before thanksgiving weekend so it may hold for that date. In either case it is too far off I can't wait to watch it.
