Ninja Assassin (2009)

James McTeigue directs RAIN, Naomie Harris and Rick Yune in this martial arts actioner where a man raised from childhood to be the ultimate killer takes down the clan who trained him.

This would possibly be the most gory mainstream release ever, with hacked limbs flying like confetti at a wedding and blood copiously gushing from the wounds, if it wasn’t for the fact that all that butchery is CGI. The film itself is rote and loveless… once we leave the child soldier dojo there is nothing here but an expensive Jason Bourne rip-off in exotic pyjamas.
