Masazuka's Ninja Suit


Masazuka's Ninja suit is a rip-off of Snake-Eyes from G.I. Joe. They couldn't do better than this? At least change the color of the damn thing to gold, silver, or red. Will Scott Adkins ever escape the cheese zone?

well, a golden/red/silver ninja suit is not very subtle^^
but I hope too, that scott adkins will become a major action star before he gets to old.

The body armor reminded me of the Batman suit in The Dark Knight.

Felt more like Ninja Gaiden.

uhhh a ninja wouldn't wear anything but black.....you know the art of stealth. Did you graduate?

You are correct about a Ninja only wearing a black Ninja outfit to blend in with the dark shadows. The only thing I did not care for was the night vision goggles that was on the Ninja suit.

Well, even Ninjas have to keep up with the times. I would have been were irritated if it would have been ancient old ninja gear in modern times. Only an idiot would not use modern technology to upgrade their equipment. Which is why I was rooting for the bad guy for the entire movie. Oh and yes, I also had Ninja Gaiden feel from that suit.

And about having different color than black would have made this movie the laughing stock of ninja movies. Im guessing Storm Shadow is just that, a laughing stock. Or he is just posing as a ninja, I dunno. If a ninja is not dressed in black, he is no ninja in the real meaning of the word.

If you expect the old fashioned Ninja gear, the movie has to take place in the era that those items are from.

Well I know that people out there would prefer to stick with the traditional way of fighting like a ninja since it has been passed down from one generation onto others. Yes you can go modern but sometimes modern technology can be beaten by something old school I hate to say it.

You're quite right. Ask ANYBODY with even a faint knowledge of swords, and they'll tell you that a hand-forged, traditionally made sword will cut the absolutely SH*T out of any factory-made sword.

Yes the hand crafted old fashioned sword was able to cut through anything pretty much. I am sure that during a fight the factory made sword would end up breaking I bet.

Ninja never wear black! Why would you think that? They wear dark blue.

reply

This is my belief about it and still think that a Ninja will fit in with the environment to be able to blend with it so no one knows that they are even there. That is how our special forces are trained is to blend into the environment.

This is completely incorrect, in fact, most ninja wore dark brown since black is "too black" against different colored backgrounds at night. For example, it would look like a 'black hole' if someone were looking at a bushline where a ninja was hiding in plain view.

In a modern age, a ninja would were camouflage, not black. And, he in fact would use night vision as well as any other modern weapon that was available... just as they did back then.

It was like a mix between Snake Eyes and Batman (from the last couple of movies). I thought it was totally awesome!!

Ninja would often wear red Shinobi (blends into shadows better than black, and hides visible blood staining). White shinobi would be used in winter/snow situations. Green/brown shonobi would be used for wooded and jungle warfare.... The "ninja only wear black" is a myth. Like combat soldiers of today the ninja would wear a camouflage coloring to blend into their surroundings. That is if they would wear a shinobi at all. Most ninja would look like any other person in a village or a monk. Disguise worked better than the shinobi in most instances.

But I fail to see why, with all the high tech replica weaponary (which would have been made with traditional means most likely, since Masazuka was loaded, money no object for this Shredder wanna-be) Would be so determined to get the ancient box of ninja gear. His suit was far superior to the shinobi of old, armour plated for one. The hi-tech sword I didn't like but all his other weapons seemed to be a better upgrade to the stuff in the box. Compound bow, Masazuka's nunchucks would have had metal not wooden hand grips, little detonator smoke bombs ... in fact everything .... I would have been content being the hi-tech ninja dude.

"The "ninja only wear black" is a myth."

Yes, exactly.

reply

He wanted the box because he believed it belonged to him. He believed that only HE had the right and skill to have all of it.

And Ninja wore whatever was most common at the time. They're goal was to blend in. Be it as a servant or as a trusted aid. The "hiding in the shadows" and "fighting samurai" was made up for movies.

There is, unseen by most, an underworld...a place that is just as real, but not as brightly lit...

reply

That suit was a combination of Snake Eyes and Batman's and had Splinter Cell Goggles. I thought it was pretty cool
