Danny Glover is 68 years old. He’s been complaining about being too old for this crap since Lethal Weapon came out more than a quarter century ago. So it makes sense that in the trailer for his latest action flick he appears to do nothing more strenuous than sit in a chair and talk on the phone.
In The Ninja : Immovable Heart, Glover leaves all of the dangerous stuff to martial-artist Rob Baard, who handles it quite nicely as you can see. Baard also directed the film, which is coming to DVD and digital March 3 from Uncork’d Entertainment.
Here’s how the plot of the movie is explained in a press release from the filmmakers:
Reeve is a member of an elite covert group thought not to exist anymore, he is captured, beaten and brutally tortured, by the very Governments he used to work for. With the help of his old mentor John Carpenter, Reeve must strip away, and rid himself of the emerging demons of his past, so that he may understand the core essence of Ninjutsu, the Ninja’s Immovable heart, in order to remember how and why he was captured, and what he is meant to do, before time runs out and his captors discover why he is really here.
The people behind the film have big plans for the franchise and are working on comics, a clothing line and a TV spinoff.
