Pray For Death is a top shelf "so bad it's good" flick. Sho Kosugi in yet another ninja flick from the 80s. This time he's a retired secret ninja who moves his family to the US to hopefully live the American dream. But things soon go down hill after his wife is killed and his youngest son is almost beaten to death...
Once Sho Kosugi goes seeking revenge that's where this film becomes magical. Shoddy fight choreography, shuriken throwing stars aplenty, gun toting white dudes in suits, a sword vs chainsaw fight sequence, young ninja kids kicking grown men's asses, Sho Kosugi being a badass as usual. And James Booth as the slimy, vicious antagonist Limehouse Willie(such a cool name for a villain).
Just a cheesy fun time. Man I love the 80s!!
8 out of 10
And that "Back to the Shadows" song that plays over the end credits is catchy as hell!!
