5/5

Review

Daryl Della‘s latest film, ‘Ninja Killface’, shatters the boundaries of what we know as a short film, elevating itself to a thrilling spectacle that demands the big screen. To label it merely a short film feels almost disrespectful; this is an action-packed, high-octane masterpiece that grabs you by the throat and never lets go. Viewers can anticipate several comedic moments throughout, adding levity to its overall intensity and drama.

Hollis L. Edwards III, embodying the titular ninja assassin, delivers a powerhouse portrayal. His performance of a relentless warrior on a mission to retrieve his mentor’s kidnapped daughter is enterirely entrancing. Set in Arizona and Texas, Edwards’ fight choreography is a performance of ferocity, every movement sharp enough to cut through the very air.

But this is no simple rescue mission. When Mr. Revolver, played with a menacing elegance by Ray Revello, commands Ninja Killface to eliminate the enigmatic Arias, the film swerves into a labyrinth of betrayal and cunning. Revello’s portrayal of the enigmatic mentor is captivating, his every word tinged with an intriguing blend of mystery and potential malice. Sasha Boggs, as Revolver’s wife, brings genuine emotional depth to the narrative, her presence tying the central theme of vengeance together with a poignant touch.

The production values are nothing short of Hollywood-grade. Della’s direction is razor-sharp, and his cinematography pulses through each showdown with thrilling expertise. The editing is tight, each cut serving the relentless pacing of the film. The post-credit scene, ‘Bruces’s Brigade’, a tantalizing cherry on top, hints at further depths to this universe, leaving the audience clamoring for more.

‘Ninja Killface’ is a credit to what short action films can achieve. It’s a film drenched in blood, sweat, and tears – showcasing the dedication of Della and his team. If there is justice in the world, ‘Ninja Killface’ will be remembered as a game-changer – a shining example of craftsmanship and storytelling.
