Ninja Assassin (2009)
Ben Miles: Maslow
Mika Coretti : So, you said you found something?
Ryan Maslow : Yeah, I was digging around to see what I could come up with and I found this. A report, friend of mine in Moscow tipped me to it. It was written during the height of the Cold War by a high-ranking KGB Agent named Aleksei Sabotin. In it he raises the possibility that a number of political assassinations were conducted by an ancient but very sophisticated network he calls The Nine Clans. Mind you, he doesn't call them ninjas.
Mika Coretti : What happened to him?
Ryan Maslow : [jokingly] The same thing that's going to happen to me if I hang around with you: kicked out of the service for mental instability.
Mika Coretti : You believe it now, don't you?
Ryan Maslow : Ninjas? You've got to be joking!
Mika Coretti : Well then, why are you doing all this?
Ryan Maslow : I don't know. But I can guarantee you it has nothing to do with the fact that you're the most attractive researcher I have ever worked with.
Ryan Maslow : I've investigated World Bank organizations, drug cartels, arms dealers, I've never faced this kind of thing! For ninjas it's fucking unbelievable!
