Critic Consensus: “Its cast tries hard, but Old Dogs is a predictable, nearly witless attempt at physical comedy and moral uplift that misses the mark on both counts.”

Directed by: James McTeigue
Plot: Raised by a mysterious and deadly ninja clan, the Ozunu, Raizo plots his revenge against them when his best friend is killed by them.
