Dancing Ninja (2010/Inception Media Group DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: D Main Program: B+

A young boy, Ikki, found washed ashore as a baby is raised in Asia as a ninja, but always felt he was slightly out of place. The legends of the past predict a young boy born with a mark will save the world, but when Ikki's master gets attacked by the evil LaDouche (David Hasselhoff), he realizes his destiny is to avenge his master, but can he become legendary Dancing Ninja to stop LaDouche and his henchmen?

Ikki is outsider raised in the ninja clan, and he is the worst ninja in the clan... until he starts dancing. Forbidden from training to become a ninja, he is street trained by Dance Dance Revolution he becomes unstop-able in Kelly Sandefur/Mitchell Klebanoff co-directed riot Dancing Ninja (2010). After his master is killed by his evil former student turned washed up action star, Ikki vows to avenge his master. He journeys to America to stop LaDouche's evil plan becoming the number one action star by killing all other action stars. Ikki will have to use all his dancing skills to save the world's stars (and get the girl) from LaDouche.

This film was like Dance Dance Revolution with Ninjas, you might as well of called this movie 'White Ninja's Can't Dance'. It makes fun of dancing, that by dancing you can become the ultimate ninja. The main character is a Caucasian boy playing an Asian role, an underdog outsider who fights against the rules and traditions to become a hero, and of course, save the girl. The most comical part was the bad guy (David Hasselhoff), who played an egotistic narcissistic former star aptly named LaDouche.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and lossy Dolby Digital sound are as good as they are going to get, but it was reported that this film was not finished until technically now since they ran out of money, so we can see why there are no extras.
