In Berlin, Europol agent Mika Coretti (Naomie Harris )has stumbled upon a money trail linking several political murders to an underground network of untraceable assassins from the Far East.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Overly serious and incomprehensibly edited, Ninja Assassin fails to live up to the promise of its title.

Common Sense Says
Extremely bloody, but it will entertain mature action fans.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Ninja Assassin is a fast-paced action movie with tons of extreme martial arts violence and gallons of blood, though its cartoonish tone may be more likely to inspire laughter than shock among teens. The story is about a man who takes on many enemies in the name of the common good -- but he does so violently and is motivated by revenge, which sends some mixed messages. Still, the movie is somewhat smarter and better told than others in this genre, and there's a female supporting character who's much braver and stronger than women typically are in these movies. Don't expect Shakespeare quality, but older teens are likely to have a good time.
