I was numbed by these ninjas
I usually get a big kick out the cut-and-paste ninja movies coming from director Godfrey Ho or whatever pseudonym he uses. However, I have to admit that I found "Ninja in the Killing Fields" (a.k.a. "Ninja Connection") to be a big bore. The main problem with the movie is that there is much less ninja nonsense displayed here compared to other Godfrey Ho movies. In fact, you have to wait until the very last scene of the movie to get ninja nonsense that's the least bit amusing (and energetically choreographed.) Most of the movie is footage from what appears to be a Thai movie, and while this footage occasionally shows some decent production values (the filmmakers obviously got the cooperation of the Thai armed forces), otherwise it is extremely boring, with far too much talk and little action. And when there is action, it is for the most part lamely directed. Whether you're in the mood for a straight action flick or an action flick that's so bad it's good, this movie doesn't satisfy either way.
