|Ninja: The Final Duel|
This is your typical Chinese vs. Japanese kung fu movie, but not all of the Japanese guys are the baddies which is nice to see.
There was a ninja assault on the monastery at Shaolin which was thwarted by the skill of the monks who train there. In defeat, the leader of the ninjas committed harakiri which pissed of the ninja clan back in Japan and they swore to avenge his death by annihilating the Shaolin monastery even though the first assault failed.
But there is also a Japanese version of the Shaolin monastery that trains ninjas, and two of the students are dispatched to China to learn the ways of the Chinese Shaolin monks and Chinese Buddhism and bring these secrets back to Japan. These are the Japanese good guys.
If you're looking for a serious martial arts film, this isn't it. However, Ninja: The Final Duel is a bizarre and campy yet entertaining kung fu movie. Watch it for the lady who fights in the buff or the crazy ninja assault teams or the racist dialogue. Just don't watch it with high expectations. Perhaps a drink or two would help, as well.

Here's the scene where one of the good ninjas tries to send the Harlem monk to the "ghetto in the sky."
