Poor Bastards of Cinema: Ninja (Part 2)

2009's Ninja has one more Poor Bastard of Cinema for me to highlight.  It's a quick one in the film, so let me break it down for you.

Our heroes have fled onto the Subway system, but the Serbians maintain pursuit...
One of them has his gun drawn and prepares to fire.
Acting quickly,- duh, he's a ninja- our hero moves out of the way and tries to take the man down.  However...
Random New Yorker gets shot to death for their troubles!
What part did this guy play in the film?  None.  He was just there to, apparently, get shot during this scene.  Why?  Was it to prove that guns are real?  If so, we already know that!

Next up, a woman learns the danger of getting her morning paper.  In the grand scheme of things, she would have died eventually, but our hero is to blame for this one!  Stay tuned...
