Nine Deaths of the Ninja (1985)

How bad is it? One of the sillier films of the genre.
Should you see it? Yes, if you ever watch martial arts flicks.

Sho Kosugi stars as a lollipop-sucking ninja, with Brent Huff of "The Perils of Gwendoline in the Land of the Yik Yak" and Emilia Lesniak (and her glue gun) as a team of anti-terrorists sent to rescue a hijacked tour bus in the Philippines. There's bimbo terrorists in tight khaki shorts, dwarf assassins and a lot of blown attempts at humor that fail so awesomely that they become amusing for the wrong reasons. There's action sequences without action, characters without character and a title that has no connection to the flimsy plot.
