Watch This: Ask a Ninja's Hilarious Review of Ninja Assassin

Enough people saw James McTeigue's Ninja Assassin these past few days to put it at #6 on the five-day weekend chart with roughly $21 million in box office earnings. But the one person I was desperately hoping would see this is the Ask a Ninja ninja himself. And oh did he see it. Thanks to SlashFilm, his video review is now viewable below, and it's a definite must watch. I love this guy. And it couldn't be more perfect that he's reviewing Ninja Assassin, one of the only big ninja movies we've seen in a while. His review: it's awesome! But he has more to say than just that. "This is like the Saving Private Ryan for ninjas!" Watch and enjoy!
I was worried that this guy would just tear it apart (even he said that) but remarkably he loved it (surprise, surprise). Or at least he loved it as a comedy. And he's right about how they "at least tried" and did a good job making it look awesome. And I love that he doesn't even call it a real ninja movie because it was rated R and not BC-17 - "Body Count 17." The other great Ask a Ninja video we featured once before was for when he interviewed Will Ferrell for the comedy Semi-Pro (watch that here). It's one of the best interviews I've ever seen, not even kidding. I wish he'd do more of them, I love this guy, especially because he's a freakin' ninja!
