| Not one of Ho and Harrison's better efforts.
Throughout the 1980s, director Godfrey Ho was responsible for churning out dozens of cheap ninja flicks, many starring blonde, mustachioed 'hunk' Richard Harrison, and nearly all of them pretty awful. Occasionally, the technical shoddiness of the film and Ho's complete inability to tell a decent story would combine to make an unforgettable viewing experience worth seeking out (Ninja Terminator being a great example). Ninja Dragon, however, is not one of these, being a mundane gangster tale so tedious that even the odd spot of ninja awesomeness and some funny dubbing cannot save it.

Richard plays Gordon, a shady bank owner who decides to settle the score when his card playing pals murder his business partner Ronald (they're obviously miffed at Gordon for playing one winning hand and then calling it a night, claiming he's tired). Meanwhile, a turf war erupts between Ronald's gang, now led by his daughter, and Fox Chan, Ronald's lifelong enemy, leading to endless dull shootouts between groups of nameless gangsters (inexplicably dressed in 30s style garb: pinstripe suits and trilby hats).

Plus points include some welcome gratuitous female nudity, and Harrison striking a variety of silly poses whilst wearing his natty camouflage suit, but even the most rabid fans of z-grade martial arts nonsense will struggle with this effort.
