I knew about Storm Shadow's upbringing and his lineage. In the comics, he's actually an American born Japanese and he served in the military with Snake Eyes which is how they knew each other. They were very close like brothers.

Of course there are varying origins. The movie one was similar to Sigma 6, except the movie managed it to make it even worse and more retarded than Sigma 6 which in itself is hilarious.
They simply streamlined it; simplifying things to the bare essentials. They removed the past friendship as it was unnecessary for the the plot of this movie, would have slowed the pace of the movie and is complex enough to fill its own movie. As for making Storm Shadow purely Japanese, it again cuts out on unneeded explanation and also allows for the setting of a large dojo complex, which would seem out of place in the U.S..

Lastly, I think it should be point out that the way the movie was filmed, there is ambiguity over who killed the Hard Master. If you notice, Storm Shadow is never shown doing the deed nor does he ever take credit for it. I'm almost certain this subplot will be revisited at some point in the movie.

I only wish they would've used teenagers instead of little brats.

I don't know about that. Watching it last night, during that scene when young SE runs up to their master, you can clearly see a shot of SS running away just as SE is running up the stairs. This is before we cut to the long shot of him running away as SE looks on.

Its very brief but you can definitely see SS running away in that shot the very moment SE reaches their master.

I think it'd be incredibly stupid to have the small kid kill his master.

I think Storm Shadow ran away because he knew he'd be the first person to get blamed for the Hard Master's death. Fleeing the scene and actual guilt are not the same thing.

There are many explanations: He could have seen the real killer and gone after him, he might be running away because he knows he'd be blamed, it might be faulty memory (i.e. it didn't play out exactly like that) or it might not even have been Storm Shadow (we don't see his face). Point is, there are many plausible reasons and the important part is that we don't actually see Storm Shadow killing or fighting against the Hard Master.

C'mon guys...don't you think you're reaching a lil' bit?

Quote:

Doesn't look like he was chasing anyone...he was simply running away from the scene. And if he did see the real killer, why wouldn't he return to the temple and explain what he saw? If he wasn't guilty of anything, why would he be so compelled to leave anyway?

Quote:

He had shown nothing but respect to his master up until he seemed to favor SE...there would be no reason to suspect why he would be blamed. And um, you know...he's a kid. He would be the last person anyone would suspect of killing the master.

Quote:

Possible.

Quote:

C'mon now, its pretty cut and dry that its young SS running away as young SE reaches their master. You mean to tell me that some random fellow asian ninja student just happened to run away at the exact moment SS is also shown running away from the temple?

Quote:

BUT...if we are to go by what is shown in the film, the reasoning would suggest that it was SS.

I don't think its implausable for SS to kill his master I mean its not like anyone would suspect him to murder his teacher, if anything he would be the last person anyone would suspect...he's a kid. If anything he made himself look even more guilty by running away.

I mean I generally dislike the idea of a kid being able to kill off his master. I think the whole kids scenario is dumb anyway. Snake Eyes being a kid from the street who's a badass martial artist, his and Storm Shadows rivalry probably not even lasting years and then Storm Shadow supposedly killing the master.

That's because Snake Eyes (and the viewers) arrive late and so may not have seen the full picture (e.g. someone could have killed the Hard Master, Storm Shadow sees him, killer runs off, Snake Eyes arrives, only sees Storm Shadow). Also, that's kind of what happened in the comics.

Because he was the only one there? Plus, his frustration at his uncle favoring Snake Eyes was rather obvious and likely known to all; thus motive.

That's kind of the point of misdirection in movies; to cause viewers to draw the wrong conclusion only to reveal a twist somewhere down the line, whether the same movie or a sequel.

SS did not kill the Hard Master, Sommers said so on the DVD comentary. There was a scene cut out where SSadmitted to SE that he didn't kill the HM. He also said SS isn't dead and spoiled how he survives.

Off the top of my head in the comics when SS is seen leaving after they thought he killed the Hard Master he was chasing Zartan who was the person that killed the HM. I'll double check but I think aside from the boys ages in the movie the SE/SS origin is just a slightly tweeked version of the comic version.

After reading the Best Of Snake Eyes TPB, I do wish the story of SE and SS would have been a little more faithful to those comics, we have no chance of seeing them fight side-by-side in a war now, or having a long friendship before they become enemies and that is a bit dissapointing.

I also dont know why they didnt keep Snake Eyes being better with a blade than Storm Shadow and SS being better with a bow, etc. There was no need to change this but for some reason they did.

I do think they can still build on their rivalry with what they have set up though, you could always have SE fighting in the gulf and SS working for the enemy as a mercenary, stuff like that, you can also build on the death of HM as well because we dont ever actually see SS putting the blade into HM's back.
