Beverly Hills Ninja

Synopsis: Following a ship wreck, a baby is rescued by a clan of Ninja warriors and raised by them as one of their own. But Haru, as he is called, never quite fits in, nor does he manage to make a worthy Ninja. However, the good-natured and persevering Haru, in his own bumbling way, and with some help from Gobei, manages to prove himself to be a winner in the end.

For hundreds of years in Japan,

there has lived a clan...

...who have dedicated themselves to

a secret art of self-defense...

...and survival.

The art is so lethal that

it has made the clan invincible.

To this day, we are known as...

...ninjas.

Twenty-five years ago...

...an ancient legend

of this sacred art came alive.

lt spoke of a foreign child

who would come among us...

...and become a ninja master

like none other.

How he arrived on our shores...

...will forever remain a mystery.

We ninjas thought that this child...

...would be the Great White Ninja

of the legend.

We were wrong.

We were very wrong.

Haru!

Haru.

Gobei.

I need your honest opinion

about something.

Yes, sensei.

What do you think of Haru?

I Iove my brother.

His heart's Iike a fIower.

His determination's Iike a tiger.

He's a fat fooI and an

embarrassment to ninjas everywhere.

Today, I am proud to be your sensei.

This is that speciaI time

when I can say to you:

''You are a ninja.''

You can communicate with

other ninjas...

...by projecting yourseIf

onto the PIane of EnIightenment.

Remember...

...on this pIane...

...which can be shared by

no other mortaI...

...we can aIways contact each other

wherever we may be.

As a ninja...

...you are one with the universe.

AII of you

who are graduating today...

...wiII receive the medaIIion

of the Tengu Warrior.

However, I give the goIden medaIIion

to my finest student.

Gobei.

Forged in the fires

of confidence and discipIine.

Carry it with you aIways.

Sorry, Haru.

CongratuIations, big brother.

Wait! Sensei, wait for me!

Sensei, I am so excited about tonight.

I have been waiting

for such a Iong time!

Tonight's exercise

is for the ninjas onIy.

But your job is an important one.

You are to remain here

to protect the viIIage...

...and guard the dojo.

I shaII do as you say.

I shaII protect the viIIage

and guard the dojo.

And I shaII water the pIants.

Good Iuck. Good Iuck.

Stay Iow so as not to be detected.

Good Iuck, my brother.

Do not try it.

Don't try it.

Are you communicating with me?

Are you communicating with me?

HeIIo?

Excuse me.

Is this the Takagure dojo?

I'm sorry.

This must be the wrong pIace.

No! PIease do not go.

I mean....

Yes, this is the Takagure dojo.

Oh, thank goodness.

Let me take your...

...shoes.

Thank you.

I was toId that

I couId find a ninja here.

ReaIIy?

PIease, sit.

Wait!

Thank you.

That's very impressive.

So are you a ninja?

Yes, I am.

But you're white.

You are observant

as weII as beautifuI.

I'm sorry. I didn't expect

to find a white ninja.

Do not be fooIed

by the coIor of my skin.

Haven't you heard of the white chiId

who'II grow up to become...

...the greatest ninja master of aII?

-Is that you?

-Some say it is so.

You see, it is written

in this hoIy writ.

This hoIds the teachings

of aII ninjutsu...

...that have been passed down

for generations over five centuries.

And in this writ there's a Iegend

about a Great White Ninja?

You see here....

''In the 1 6th century

there came to pass--''

This is the wrong writ.

This is about the sensei

and the twin geishas.

AIso a good Iegend...

...but not the one

we were Iooking for.

Here is my Iegend.

''It is foretoId that

a foreign chiId wiII come...

...and become a ninja master

Iike no other.''

It's burning.

Yes, the words are seared

into my souI.

I mean it's reaIIy on fire!

Yes, I can teII.

They may have a second copy.

PIease teII me...

...why you have come to my dojo.

I warn you that what I'm gonna

ask you to do might be dangerous.

Danger is my companion.

Miss...?

SaIIy. SaIIy Jones.

I am Haru.

Do not worry about Haru.

This ninja knows no fear.

You see, I am a trained master

in each of the weapons of battIe.

That rack was not buiIt by ninjas.

This, however, was.

Luck is with me...

...for this sacred shrine

hoIds the ashes...

...of our faIIen ninja warriors.

Sensei is going to kiII me!

Takure.

Master Go.

Tampo?

Kai?

I think they worked as a team.

TeII me why you are

in need of a ninja.

I've heard ninjas can get into pIaces

without being seen.

This is important, because

what I need requires great steaIth.

You are in Iuck.

My highest grades were in steaIth.

Let me give you an exampIe.

CIose your eyes, turn around

and count to nine.

When you open them,

I wiII be gone.

One, two...

...three, four...

...five, six...

...seven, eight...

...nine.

HeIIo?

Here I am.

SaIIy Jones, I wiII accept

your dangerous mission.

Oh, that's great.

Thank you.

Here's my probIem.

I'm seeing this man.

Oh, you have a man friend.

I've become suspicious of him.

He may be seeing another woman.

I think it's bigger than that.

I've discovered he has a meeting

tomorrow by the harbor.

ExceIIent.

You too shouId be a ninja.

I need you to find out what he's up to.

His name's Martin TanIey...

...and he has a Iimousine

with this Iicense pIate number.

3-5-1 -0-2.

Where shaII I contact you?

It's important that

you don't try to contact me.

I'II contact you before

I return to the States.

Whatever you wish. I wiII foIIow

your boyfriend, SaIIy Jones.

My eyes wiII be Iike

the tentacIes of a squid.

Good.

I guess.

Thank you.

Yes! I got you.

Good morning, Mr. TanIey.

Nobu.

It's aII set.

They'II meet us here.

Let's have a Iook at it, then.

-Oh, yes.

-It's a perfect counterfeit.

Yes, one we can dupIicate

1 0 miIIion times.

Martin TanIey,

attack me with your front gate...

...I come in the back door.

Oh, yes. They are beautifuI.

I have some bad news.

What?

I have the pIates for

onIy one side of the biII.

Excuse me?

We tried to get the ones

for the other side...

-...but they're heId up in Los AngeIes.

-Why?

-I don't know.

-You're paid weII to know.

I arranged to get this set of pIates.

I've just paid a miIIion doIIars for

one side of a 1 0,000 yen biII.

What good does that do me?

No good.

WeII, here's some advice

for your next Iife:

Never take a job you can't compIete.

Sensei, I am sorry I posed as a ninja,

but this woman needed my heIp.

It's you who needs heIp.

I have Iearned the poIice beIieve

a ninja committed a murder.

BeIieve me, sensei.

I kiIIed no one.

I do beIieve you, Haru,

but I'm worried.

Do not worry about me.

It is the woman who is in troubIe.

Does it not seem IikeIy

that this woman hired you...

...because she wanted someone

she couId bIame for this murder?

She is incapabIe of such things.

She is as IoveIy as a dove.

It sounds to me you are being

Ied around by your short sword.

Gobei caIIed her hoteI.

There is no one named SaIIy Jones.

A woman such as you described

had the name AIison Page.

Perhaps she gave the hoteI

a faIse name.

Perhaps she gave you the faIse name.

Sensei, beIieve me.

This woman's teIIing the truth.

You are unabIe to teII

truth from untruth.

That is impossibIe.

My ninja intuition teIIs me this.

You don't have ninja intuition.

You do not even have

normaI intuition.
