Norwegian Ninja

Well here's a norse of a different color. This film is pretty much everything that the title promises. It's in Norway and it's about the royal ninjas who protect their fair land. It is set and shot in an early seventies style. The plot delves into the "truth" behind the arrest of the biggest KGB agent ever in Norway. There are the ninjas who train tirelessly (when not drinking and doing BBQ) on a small island, and a secretive CIA created group designed to create terrorist incident. The two forces clash in an epic battle.

This was a fun film. The grainy style of photography didn't wow me, but overall I liked the look and design of the film. It dealt with the absurdity of Norwegian ninjas in the best "Airplane" style of perfect deadpan seriousness. I definitely enjoyed the experience.
