Crazy Rich (and hot) Asians

Gonna see Crazy Rich Asians this weekend. In the meantime I’ve been bingeing on one of my favorite action movies, Ninja Assassin

This movie features the beautiful and talented Naomie Harris as its leading lady, and musical superstar RAIN as the male lead. South Korean born Rain is the ninja Raizo, and the film contains an awesome nod to the past with legendary martial artist and film star Shô Kosugi

Rain was already a mega K-Pop star before he landed the lead role in Ninja Assassin. He trained for months, and grew his hair out for the part.

The Trivago guy (actor Tim Williams) is also an extra in the film (the task force officer who lets Mika give Raizo a drink of water) during the scene below:

Naomie Harris plays Mika, an Europol Forensic Analyst. Rain is Raizo, a ruthless, for hire assassin who goes rogue.


“Oh Mika, Mika. I like you more and more” – Rain, from Ninja Assassin

Rain, before he takes on a group of ninjas who are now his enemies.



Fine as hell Rick Yune is also in the movie, as the villain Takeshi.



Raizo needs Mika’s help to bring down his former associates.


This scene is not in the film, dammit!!



Rain, in another scene from Ninja Assassin


There are no words . . .


Raizo: “What took you?” Mika: “You knew I’d come?” Raizo: “Just because I was asleep doesn’t mean I couldn’t hear you.”



Damn, he looks good 🙂


Ninja Assassin is a “clean” love story. Rain kisses his first love before she dies, and it looks like Mika may be his next (I dunno. That’s wishful thinking on my part). But hell, she saved his life at the end of the movie, so you never know.


Okay, so I can’t match the action of this film, but ain’t no fade to black love scenes in my books:
