High above the city streets, as the rains pours from the night sky, a man paces. Hearing a noise, he moves to investigate. Looking above and around, he shrugs it off as little more than paranoia. A flick of a dart and the light above shatters… it’s an ominous sign of what’s to come. Shaken, the guard pulls out a flashlight and begins his search.
A shadow creeps slowly from above, the sheen of the blade revealing its deadly intentions. The guard feels a hand over his mouth and the sword at his back, but it’s all too late. It’s a flawless kill, just one of many – and it’s this sense of empowerment that lifts Mark of the Ninja above many of its big-budget contemporaries.
