Zombie Ninjas vs Black Ops Movie Info:
In the clandestine research tower of a ruthless Japanese security and arms company, Saisei Security, scientist MALI awakens employed mercenaries killed in combat, their death giving rise to a new, vicious breed of zombie… ZOMBIE NINJAS. Trapped amongst unsuspecting civilians, including former tactical operative DILLON (Adam T Perkins), the ZOMBIE NINJAS commanded by a ferocious leader (Soa ‘The Hulk’ Palelei) are unleashed in the inner city high-rise. They soon face off with the covert response mission deployed to fight back. This elite black ops team underestimates the brutality of their encounter, which ultimately tests their loyalty and friendship, resulting in a frightful assault between these two highly skilled lethal forces and DILLON thrust in the middle fighting for survival.

Zombie Ninjas vs Black Ops is straight up B movie goodness, which isn’t a bad thing. It’s not always a pejorative term for films, and some of the most beloved films are B movies, think Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, Foxy Brown, and Snakes on a Plane. I enjoyed Zombie Ninjas vs. Black Ops way more than I thought I could (or would).
Let’s start off with these ultra powerful, super brutal zombies. Let me be clear, the zombies are actually scary-looking. No, you will not find bits of flesh falling off in clumps like the zombies you’re accustomed to seeing on TV or in movies. They also aren’t aimless, carniverous drones shuffling and tottering about in search of brains to eat. A shadowy Japanese organization names Saisei has been testing their reanimation serum on dead mercs–the ninjas–in order to bring back damaged tissue to life, allowing dead mercenaries and soldiers to keep fighting on. Their goal was to exploit this new serum for their own ends. Yes, they’re dead, and the exchange between scientist Mali (Kira Lee Caine) and dashing hero Dillon (Adam T. Perkins) when they finally discover this is one of the best exchanges in the film, but they’ve managed to come back with all their murderous skills intact and nothing more except for a lot of rage. And no one is more ravenously enraged than the zombie ninja boss (UFC fighter Soa “The Hulk” Palelei). And they are ready to beat the hell out of anyone who crosses their path. They are ruthless and very angry. When they attack, they will not stop until you’re deader than dead. Oh, they won’t bite a chunk out of you, but they will beat the living daylights out of you until you do die. Male, female, it really doesn’t matter. Their attacks are fast and precise, but no less brutal. I love The Walking Dead and the like, but I do like a different take on zombies, and this definitely was a unique approach. In fact, that’s where some of the terror I felt came from.
Don’t expect the signature moaning or guttural sound effects that you’re used to in zombie movies and TV shows. These zombie ninjas sound like beasts with deep, bass-heavy groans that are more commonplace in dinosaur or giant monster movies. That’s not a bad thing however because along with the zombies’ gleaming red eyes, twitching and constant contortion as if they are in pain or trying to fight off some unseen force, the audio effect makes them come off as more menacing and monstrous. Now this doesn’t make much sense considering they are just human, but they were ninjas when they were alive in 2015. Just go with it.
