Ninja Assassin

 (2009)

Ninja Assassin Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Raizo is one of the deadliest assassins in the world. Taken from the streets as a child, he was transformed into a trained killer by the Ozunu Clan, a secret society whose very existence is considered a myth. But haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them...and vanishes. Now he waits, preparing to exact his revenge. In Berlin, Europol agent Mika Coretti has stumbled upon a money trail linking several political murders to an underground network of untraceable assassins from the Far East. Defying the orders of her superior, Ryan Maslow, Mika digs into top secret agency files to learn the truth behind the murders. Her investigation makes her a target, and the Ozunu Clan sends a team of killers, led by the lethal Takeshi, to silence her forever. Raizo saves Mika from her attackers, but he knows that the Clan will not rest until they are both eliminated. Now, entangled in a deadly game of cat and mouse through the streets of Europe, Raizo and Mika must trust one another if they hope to survive and finally bring down the elusive Ozunu Clan!

Ninja Assassin Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Ninja Assassin storms Blu-ray with a strong (albeit imperfect) 1080p/VC-1 transfer that allows McTeigue's furious action scenes to spill into your home theater. Karl Walter Lindenlaub's searing reds, earthy hues, beautiful skintones, and inky blacks are absolutely gorgeous in high definition. Whether lit by raging firelight or bathed in shadow, his photography is one of the film's greatest assets, making Warner's presentation a striking one regardless of how stark or somber his palette becomes. Bold contrast and convincing dimensionality manage to enhance his efforts even farther, preserving every fine detail and revealing texture as he and McTeigue intended. Naturally, darkness overtakes the action scenes -- we are dealing with shadow-hopping ninja here -- and occasionally reduces visibility to a punchline. But it's all within the director's control, and rarely, if ever, hinders the impact of the image. Artifacting, banding, aliasing, and ringing are nowhere to be found, and DNR hasn't been employed. If anything, brief bursts of noise assault a handful of nighttime shots, and spurts of CG blood frequently showcase their computer-generated seams, but both issues are a product of the film's original source, not Warner's technical transfer. All things considered, Ninja Assassin looks great and should easily satisfy fans hoping for a sharp and stunning presentation.


Ninja Assassin Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Warner's head-snapping DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is even better, celebrating every errant shuriken that hurtles across the battlefield, every chained blade that encircles a doomed ninja, and every blood geyser that erupts from a fallen foe. Where to begin? Rear speaker activity is both nimble and unrelenting, effortlessly distributing sound effects across the film's eerily immersive soundfield and lending their full support to the on-screen action. Likewise, LFE output is brisk and booming, laying its hands round the throat of any sound effect heartier than a whisper. Splintering wood, gunfire, explosions, thundering punches and kicks, the meaty thunk of blade on bone, the rum-tum-ta-tum of the film's score... McTeigue's sound design may be heightened to the Nth degree, but the overall experience makes quite an impression. Through it all, dialogue remains crisp and intelligible (albeit a bit too bright on occasion), dynamics are confident, directionality is exceedingly precise, and pans are as invisible as the shinobi striking from the shadows. It may not be the most realistic sonic powerhouse I've had the pleasure of sampling, but it tackles Ninja Assassin's chaotic battles with fury and fervor, and matches the tone and tenor of its action-packed madness at every turn.
