Deadly ninja Raizo (Rain) is wanted by international agencies for his connection to the secretive ninja society known as the Ozunu Clan. He crosses paths with foxy detective Mika Coretti (Naomie Harris, minus her natural accent and any personality she showed in "28 Days Later"), who's working a case involving Ozunu. She makes the shocking (!) discovery that Raizo's actually a good guy, sworn to avenge the death of his love at the hands of the evil Ozunu leaders.

The rotten clichés pile up faster than the bodies in this Z-movie disaster. A total dud start to finish, the film's only selling point is its excessively graphic violence, and even on that level it's a disappointment.
