    You need to be able to distinguish between ninja, samurai dan martial art movies. Not all fight action movies from Japan is Ninja Movies…

    Pretty much all of the old school Shaw Brothers films are worth watching, my personal favorites are Five Deadly Venoms, Invincible Shaolin, and all of the 36th Chamber films.

    And once you do watch some of the best Shaw Bros films, you won't want to watch the slow extremely basic choreography of the Americanized modern martial arts films at all. The worst Americanized martial arts films have the super-annoying "one hit camera angle", where every individual hit of a fight is filmed at near extreme close-up distances, and they change the camera angle after each hit.

    Everything Gordon Lieu ever made is worth watching.

    I would pick Revenge of the Ninja AND Enter the Ninja over Ninja 3 The Domination as far as that trilogy goes, and I would put Pray For Death after Ninja 3. BTW, Sho Kosugi's real sons were in Revenge of the Ninja (Kane and Shane), and they've been doing pretty good on their own in the movie business now that they're all grown up.

    I would definitely pick American Ninja 1 over the campier sequels.

    "The Last Ninja" with Michael Beck (aka Swan from The Warriors) was a made for TV movie back in 1983 that had "Mako" as his teacher. Definitely a little known jem and a must watch ninja movie.

    There was a Ninja movie that I watched in 2010 I think about 2 Ninja villages in hard times, who were rivals for assassination jobs and the two main characters were in love with each other even though it was forbidden. I didn't really watch it completely and I want to re-watch it, but I can't remember the name.
    Does someone on here know which movie I'm referring to? It came out around the time of Ninja Assassin.

    If you look it up, a Ninja film, should be a horror. They were very spiritual. Azumi's a cool film. I'm not a fan of Chinese ninja films, they tend to just wear a black suit, and keep doing kung fu.
