Looks like all they care about is having French ninja action and cool looking effects shot in 3D.
I love the 1970’s version. It’s full of great humour, has a good story, is cast and acted excellently. It was one of my favourites as a kid and I still love it and its sequel.
This version looks like it suffers from all the problems of many a modern movie. Too much attention on soulless CGI action, fast cuts for the fighting, not enough time to flesh out characters due to the action and effects dominating.
