Film Description
Tokyo, A.D. 2190. Demons have over run the city, only a nameless ninja from a secret clan has the chance to save humanity from its pending extinction.

----------
Fully Japanese voice overed and English subtitled.
Editing and cutting of footages done entirely in AMM. No external footage editing at all.
Custom contents are created by myself using photoshop, then imported into The Movies as backdrops. The custom animation is done by cutting thse custom backdrops to a split second. Combined them and an animation is on :)
Opening music tune created by myself using midi tools.
Also I used Magix to alter my voices, and speed up one of The Movies's original music.
---------
Same as English, Japanese isn't my first langurage, please forgive me if I have made severe grammer mistakes :P
---------
This was inspired by Japanese shinobi movies, and animes.
Have fun ^_^.
--------
done on 22nd Nov. This is my 3rd The Movies release.
---------
edited : haha, I see some people have questions on about "the day has come" part in the movie, I actually put it in there as a little joke. If you have watched some of the Japanese ninja movies or animes, they sometimes have a plot like : "Oh! You are the savior! You will save us all! You must face the trial, because it's you destiny to do so!"

So, yeah, it's a little "insider" joke :P
---------
The "Why would ninjas have cellphone!?" answer :)
Well, it's year 2190, even ninjas should enjoy some hi-tech shouldnt they? :P :P
Even in our current world, monks, priests, solders, martial artists use cellphones too! :P
A mixture of "hi-tech" and "ancient" style was in my mind when I cut this scene in ^_^, heavily influenced by the anime Naruto's sense of world.

So many anime clichés in such a short space of time. The dialogue, voice acting, cinematography and plot all fit the stereotypes. Awesome (^o^)/

Incredibly impressive editing and use of custom content to deliver a new style of film that I'm sure none of use at LH thought would be possible. 5 stars! :)

Wow blew my mind. The Japanese VO's made it refreshing and authentic. Too bad it was so short, this has a lot of potential. A very fast paced film that has that Japanses style to it. Nicely done. This will surely reach near the top.

Story.... 5.0 Great style in story telling.
Editing.. 4.5 Very well edited. Some very nice touches not yet seen.

Holy hell that's a damned fine movie! Although it could have been improved by the main bad guy being a chicken.

This is excellent! actually I have to say thank you to Josh that your movie actually inspired me for making a custom mobs of my own films. Way of the Ninja - Creative, Powerful, Unique!

For the little bit downside was the VO seems abit too loud, and the film is quite short which is unable to explore much of the storyline. Keep it up!

Stylish -very stylish. Love it. One of the voices was too annoying for my liking, but the overall effect was good. Would have loved more combat, though.

Heheh. This is pretty good. You definitely gave it that Japanese anime vibe. I love your Japanese VO and lines for the characters. Definitely cliche. I know I must have seen those lines in a dozen flicks--makes it that much better. I hope you do more anime-style movies. I may try your technique. Thx for the description of them.

i love the voices used and i think the overall flow of the film was very highly constructed. the plot might have been a bit over my head but this film deserves good reviews.

I'm giving this 5 because of the effort involved. Lovely editing with the Ninja words, and good attempt at sometihng short. Well writen, if a little cliched but to think you made this only with the Movies game opens up interesting possibilities for us all.

Wonderful. I felt like I was watching a real Japanese cartoon or something! I love the use of the Japanese voiceovers with English subtitles. Ah, you have done well, Grasshopper!

From Critic's Corner hosts Jeremiah and Dr. Googlestien
Great little spoof off a horror movie mixed with great action ninjas. It reminds me of Godzilla and how Tokyo people are scared of big monsters like that. I really thought this was going to be a great movie and it lived up to it most definently. This has got a chance of really being a great series. It came out better than I thought. Great action scene and voice-over work. A unique Japanessee movie receives a rare four stars from us. It would have been great had it been long though.

It is a bit corny so... it is between a 4 and a 5 for me.
You got style! I'll bookmark your studio.

P.S. Please rate my movie, The Way Things Go

Something original here. Shows off the variety that the engine can produce with a bit of creative editing.

Great editing and customisation make this unique and well worth 4 stars! With a little more polish and a better story it would be 5 stars. As it stands.....

And the voiceovers were great, are you japaneese? I hope your going to make a longer movie.

Excellent japaneese voiceover. Although I do not know hardly any japaneese I think you did it well because the voiceovers sounded authentic. Great story and great action and editing. Very well done. :D

Un-freakin-beliveable! I love the Japanese VO's. The part he says before Fire Punch is really cool (and somewhat funny). Short, but worthy of sequels.

Absolutely original in it's imitation of a well established film genre. The Japanese voice over gave it an exotic quality. Somewhere between Kurosawa and Samurai Jack. Great !

Despite a few flaws, I have to give you 5 stars for the near perfect sense of style this movie has captured. It is very clear that you worked really hard on making it, and it looks like it really has payed off. The voice acting was mostly good, its just in the beginning that it felt a bit lacking. Still, it really sounded like something you would hear in a Japanese flick. The story seemed a bit abrut and thrown together, and it would have been nice to see more of a fight between the Ninja and the demon creature. Never the less, a truely standout movie that deserves a place on the charts.

Well, for the cutting and backdrop use alone, you have to get four stars!

It's classic B-Movie in my opinion, but the creativity you've done here, is just awesome...! Very good job buddy!! your movie is here by added to my list of supreme movies! :)

Cheers

Just an incredible effort. The posters, the backdrops, the use of the ninja/anime cliches, all well done. No real story here, but then again, not really a need for one in this case. Love it.

Awesome, this movie has the energy of a runaway train! So much creativity and imagination in such a short movie, you MUST make a longer one- please!

Entertaining, even if a bit short. Good voice overs for the most part. The guys voice at first who got bit was a little annoying but the rest worked well. I'm a fan of Japanese entertainment, so that made it all the better for me. Keep up the good work!

Nice one! the Japanese (and very good) VO really added to this film too.
too bad the ending was a bit too chaotic to follow, and rendered too dark by The Movies...

Great work on this. It was really refreshing to see somethign not yet tried in the genre of film making. The japanese voice overs were a great touch and the editing for the film for the most part was spot on. The only down side was the length. You should start up a series using this Ninja

Posted on November 23, 2005
- SteelWool

Pretty cool. The training and stuff was pretty cool. I would have liked to see the whole explained better. Example: Ninja calls cell phone and the guy is like the day has come or whatever. I don't have any understanding (other than there's a ninja and training and a single zombie in the woods) of how the day has finally come. I also think a longer, more drawn out action scene would be nice at the end. Speaking in Japanese, however, was tight.

Some great editing and orignal ideas. impressed. Love the the whole feel of the movie. Wanted more.

From watching i can see that you put alot of work into making this and i feel that it did you well. I must say that having the Japanese voice-over along with the movie you get more of a fell of how the characters are felling in a scene. again great job two thumbs way up 5 out of 5 stars. keep'em coming

Ok now first things first this was AWESOME the story wasn't very original i must admit but i loved the japanese voice-over for this alone without any moving pictures or music or sound effects i would have given you 5 stars then the music great and the opening credits but the one thing that really knocked me of my chair was the ninjitsu sequence where he kills the werewolf it reminded me of naruto on of my favorite anime series
I'm looking forward for a second part and a third and a fourth and a fifth and..

Wooow! Amazing movie here! The japanese voice is really cool! But you lose one star because the movie is waaaaay too short... Why you dont made the fight more longer ? You have a huge potential!

Story : 3/5 It's too short...
Voice : 5/5 I understand nothing... But it's normal... It's a japanese movie! :P
Music : 5/5 Good music!
Editing : 4/5 Good editing with some minors issues

Continue like this man! You have a great potential!
