Going crazy trying to remember a movie.

Postby Vaughn » 09 Feb 2012, 01:02

It was about a race car driver who crashes, but is pulled out just before he dies, into the future, so some evil people can harvest his organs to keep their boss or dictator alive longer. its a common practise in the future. I keep thinking it was Harrison Ford, but I cant find anything on IMDB, and i'm not sure how old it was. Possibly Robocop-old.

Please help so I can get a decent sleep.

The whole harvest organs to keep the big man alive seems alot like the plot of Crank 2.

ok lets try this.

Plot: two "karate" clans meet for combat, the two heads of the family choose a fighter to fight for them. One chooses his son, the other introduces a ninja. The ninja wins, then I think the ninjas kill everyone for some reason?

The son, joins with the enemy clan to train to defeat the ninja trials. One is something about walking on a bridge over water, another one the 'ninjas' shine bright lights in the fighters faces which they overcome with polished shields.

at one point someone goes to leave but the ninjas hang down from the ceiling, jump out of the walls and pop up from the floor holing swords and the 'hero' has to run and dive through a small opening.

It has been a LONG time since I saw this so some of the details are a clearly sketchy, does this ring a bell at all?

GAAAAH Thank you Geoff_B. All my googling would get me Invader Zim quotes or Nascar accidents.

A little bit, Lord Hosk. Was it a fairly recent movie, cause it sounds like the scattered memories I have of Ninja Assassin

I saw it late 95-97 cuase it was in highschool when I had cable in my room, and it was on late night local tv so it could have been made in the 80's or early 90's
