Did Lack of Blasian Love Assassinate “Ninja Assassin”?
I have to admit, I completely forgot about the movie Ninja Assassin. J and I planned on seeing it but forgot about it because the reminders have dropped off. Maybe we have been missing the commercials or the advertising has dropped off because everyone is going to see New Moon instead but we both completely forgot about the film.
In mid October J was excited to see the film and was telling me we should go see it but today he doesn’t even remember it. Me: Are we still going to go see Ninja Assassin? J: What is that? Maybe we aren’t even missing anything. Most of the people who have seen it loved the action in the streets but not the lack of action in the sheets. Folks who are down with the bumblebee swirl were hoping for some hot lip action between the characters, but then I’m not sure if that is fair to put on an action film. I don’t watch many of them but from the few I’ve viewed romance seems to be secondary if it exists at all.What I find interesting is the perspective of two main actors. In early interviews Rain was saying there was a romance between his character and Naomie Harris’ character but when Naomie Harris gave an interview last spring she said there was only flirtation between the two characters but hopes that in a sequel a romance will blossom between the two characters.
So you tell me, if you saw Ninja Assassin was there enough romance for an action film or did you want more romance between Raizo and Mika?
