The five element ninjas scenes alone are worth the price. The warriors counter by jumping into the trees and by using a scythe on a chain to grab the wood ninjas from safety. I think its the way they take the art of invisibilty a bit further than expected. While fellow kung fu film director, Liu Chia Liang was still able to pull off hits, Cheh was perhaps getting too quirky and obvious with his favorite themes of heroic men in revealing outfits, gruesome fights and few if no women in the story. Oddly enough the Kung Fu master responds to the fire in his bedroom by throwing all the flammable things he can find on the fire.
The Japanese then raid headquarters and are able to kill the head master along with Lo Mang Toad. So much of this film is wacky that it's a waste of your time to recount it. But the brothers and Tien-hao are ready using part of their multi-weapon to block the glare. The last of the eight is attacked by the Earth ninjas and their master, who appear from and disappear into the ground; he also dies. Cheh was out of the Shaw studio by 1983 and working in low budget Taiwanese cinema he never was able to achieve anything remotely near his past successes.
Ninjas wrapping a guy up in chains and making him explode? While fellow kung fu film director, Liu Chia Liang was still able to pull off hits, Cheh was perhaps getting too quirky and obvious with his favorite themes of heroic men in revealing outfits, gruesome fights and few if no women in the story. Everyone is fighting with weapons in mass fight scenes that are incredibly choreographed. The Five Deadly Venoms would seem like Shakespeare and this a bad high school play in comparison. On par dubbing, meh story line, but my gosh it felt like 2 movies. I recently saw it on sale and purchased it,not knowing if it was going to be as good as I remembered. Released 1982, 'Five Element Ninjas' stars , , , The movie has a runtime of about 1 hr 47 min, and received a score of out of 100 on Metacritic, which collated reviews from knowledgeable critics. Ninja tactics and techniques are displayed in fine detail here.
The fight scenes are fantastic and the story keeps you interested. A lot of the costumes, and some of the fights, are awfully damn hokey, but some of the fight scenes are extremely well choreographed and executed particularly the fight against Gold and the final boss fight. I wouldn't recommend this film, but if you are really into the genre, you can kill some time with it. Together with three equally adept pals, Shao Tien-hao goes looking for revenge. Together the four pupils face the Five Element Ninja challenge: Wood, Earth, Gold, Water, and Fire. The different weapons and fighting styles are what keeps the story going and the elements gold, wood, fire, water, earth are really a force to reckon with.
In total a somewhat silly movie that keeps one occupied the entire length of the film I wonder if Cheh didn't have a bit of humor in mind with this one as one can't possibly accept it as a straight action without laughing. This is a very hilarious battle, the ninja trees try to claw the Kung Fu warriors and hit them with throwing stars. The first 30 minutes are practically non stop action sequences, with the opening showing a tournament between japanese bushidos and kungfu weapons experts. The fighting is in no way extremely slow paced like one person writes in the comments but it is possible to see that it is rehearsed here and there which of course it is for safety reasons. The characters have no chance at development and the timeline is ridiculous The girl is given 6 months hard labor and Ricky Cheng learns the art of the Ninjas in what a 5 week study course? Then we get to the ninja scenes, which are some of the goriest of kungfu films the stepped on intestines scene is memorable. Granted the samurai sword skills on display are from outer space but it goes with the absurd nature of the entire movie. Guarda Five Element Ninjas senza limite.
Also starring Iien Hsiang Lung. But one wonder as the gore factor is rather high? This is his swan song at the Shaw studios, The plot is absolutely silly and full of absurdities even for your average Chinese made Ninja film. The quality isn't great, but it does have a nice mini-filmography of the actors in the movie. This film is jammed packed with fights and never has a dull moment. Meanwhile, sexy female ninja Senji Pei Hsi Chen infiltrates the base of the white guys who I think are called The Alliance of the Martial Arts World, but 'white guys' is quicker to type ; she sends plans of their building to her ninja pals who launch an attack, killing all but Shao Tien-hao Tien-Chi Cheng , who makes it to the home of a martial arts master who teaches him how to fight against the ninjas.
Together the four pupils face the Five Element Ninja challenge: Wood, Earth, Gold, Water, and Fire. This is a well crafted movie. This time the Kung Fu fighters are well trained and anticipate the Ninja's every move. Data di uscita : 16 gennaio 1982. Wood: These ninjas hide in trees and in tree costumes. So, he considers the offer carefully but eventually decides to follow the elaborate instructions on the invitation to the letter.
There are some scenes that made me laugh out loud, but that's to be expected from a low budget Chop-Sockey flick. What can I say about Chinese Super Ninjas? Also if you like goofy Ninja movies you might wanna watch Shogun's Ninja. This time the multi-weapons turn into stilts with spear bottoms that pierce the ground to kill the ninjas hiding underground. Two kung fu schools are about to square off in a tournament to decided which is supreme. If you don't like Ninja movies then don't watch this movie. When the leader of a clan of elite Chinese warriors receives an invitation to a battle at five locations from the five elements ninjas he suspects a trap. Actually I taped it but the last 30 minutes of the film was not taped because my videotape ran out!!! This battle sequence is awesome, very poorly dubbed and a bit cheesy but its half an hour of nonstop action and serious gore.
Now bound the ninja is no match for the three brothers. Venom Lo Meng appears but this is more of a vehicle for Tien Chi Cheng and he does a good job as leading man. If you enjoyed this as much as I did then check out other classic Shaw Brothers martial arts flicks, Come Drink with Me 1966, The 36th Chamber of Shaolin 1978, The Chinese Boxer 1970, 5 Fingers of Death 1972, Eight Diagram Pole Fighter 1984, The Killer 1972, Killer Clans 1976, The Magic Blade 1976, Master of the Flying Guillotine 1976, The Avenging Eagle 1978, Killer Constable 1980 and Heroes of the East 1978. However, for me Five Element Ninjas is easily one of the best because it not only delivers the goods, but is a very well crafted quality production. While the Kung Fu champs fight valiantly they are all killed fairly quickly, with the exception of the guy who fights the Earth element. Fire: These ninja's use smoke flares to blind their enemies. Except for Venom star Lo Meng, the cast is composed of Shaw second stringers but that doesn't mean the action is anything less then excellent.
If you havent seen it, go! So much of this film is wacky that it's a waste of your time to recount it. But if you do find it, get it you won't be sorry. Tien-hao and his three new brothers are equipped with an odd ax like weapon that is really 12 weapons in one. How do you go about making an old school Shaw Brothers kung fu flick even more entertaining? Each ninja clan has its own unique attack setup gold-shields that fire spires, wood-ninjas posing as trees and using claws, water-ninja frogmen that pull kungfu fighters to the water where they can be easily killed, fire-smoke screens and fire setting traps, earth-underground spearmen. A lone fighter faces the Fire ninjas, who wear red and are equipped with smoke weapons; no prizes for guessing how he gets on. This movie features breathtaking choreography from Chang Cheh and a good plot.
