Review: 'Ninjas from Ibiza' (Zuda)

Ninjas from Ibiza: Clubbin' to Death

The island of Ibiza is the homeland of electro-dance-party lifestyle, but it is also a place of the most important schools for assassins in the world, steeped with a century-long history of training the deadliest and most invincible of killers.


There's something to be said about a gang leader wearing a pink leather vest... I just don't know what it is.

Ninjas from Ibiza is action packed and the plot seems like it could be interesting, but the dialogue loses nearly everything in the translation. It's confusing and distracting. It makes it hard to understand exactly what's going on but you get the general idea... something bad is about to happen and the good guys showed up just in time.

The art is phenomenal. The action sequences are dynamic and colorful and really draw you into the moment. If there's any negative about the art it's that it feels a little too bright. The main villain sports handlebar sideburns and wears pink leather.

On the other hand, the design of the two heroes are awesome - a guy with blue skin and a weapon I wouldn't even know how to begin describing, and a second character that never says anything, sports a helmet that looks like a cross between an arrow and a hammerhead. I'd especially like to see more of the second guy... the design is just that intriguing. 

Overall it's pure eye-candy. The dialogue makes the story a little difficult to follow but the art goes a long way toward making up for that.
