"The Ninja Strikes Back" is tremendously entertaining, delivering sleazy and action-packed incidents from start to finish. A fight on the steps of Rome, a freeze frame decapitation, a balding businessman being overpowered by drug addled nymphomaniacs and a topless woman sunning herself on a beach only to then be shot at by a sniper are but some of the many highlights. The kidnapping of an ambassador's daughter by two thugs one of whom is dressed in drag is the main raison d'etre for the globe-trotting exploits of Bruce Le in an endless succession of fight scenes and travelogue shots of Rome, Hong Kong and Paris where Bruce takes a detour to the fleshpots of Pigalle and ends up exchanging blows on the set of a French porn film. The film's finale provides a recreation of the ending of Way of the Dragon and sees Bruce summoned to the Coliseum in Rome and challenged to a battle to the death by someone identified on the video box as 'Chick Norris'. Cartoon inserts of breaking bones and a pulsating heart symbolise Chick taking lethal blows from a victorious Bruce.
