Concept

Shuriken3

Paul W. S. Anderson choose a new design for the Shurikens, choosing to give them the feel that they were more dangerous so included the six bladed designed discs. These would activate when they were about to be thrown expanding their blades and then retracting their blades when caught after throwing.

Post Production

The blades transitions between the retracted units and the expanded units were preformed in post production by CGI and included them being thrown and returned.
