4.0 out of 5 stars Only for martial arts fans Aug. 26 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Obviously, American Ninja films were made for action and, more especially, martial arts fans. I wouldn't go as far as to say the film SUCKED, as a few reviewers put it (reading those reviews, makes me think WHY on earth these people even bother to watch a film like this one). Sure, the film is pure B-series (like all the other parts) and undoubtfully lacks the magic of the first American Ninja with Dudikoff and Steve James. But the martial arts coreography from David Bradley, as one reviewer puts it, is superb, especially the forest scenes and when he fights all the ninjas once he's been captured. However, one change it does make from the first film is a lead actor who can actually fight and is a real martial artist. David Bradley probably can't act, but I wouldn't give Dukikoff an Oscar either. The idea of pairing the two for the film was quite attractive, although i agree with the opinion that it was ridiculous to not even get them together until the last 15 min of the movie. I also have to give other reviewers the comical opinions on the other supporting actors (silly kid, useless sidekick, weird woman) but hey, it's a B-movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Half assed attempt with shortcomings everywhere Feb. 11 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I remember how back in 91 this was THE movie to see... Dudikoff (Joe Armstrong) was coming back and was teaming with the new guy... The previews showed clips of both American Ninjas fighting each other and you couldn't have been more excited... Unfortunately, the best fighting we see was in the beginning 30 minutes and came from a real martial artist in David Bradley (Sean Davidson)... This movie was a complete gimmick from the start with the idea of Dudikoff returning and it failed to produce... Dudikoff was underused and his "martial arts" was sub-par... The tacky groups of allies from the garbage dump with their homemade weapons were a joke... The little kid who knew everything sucked... The black side kick guy was pointless... The lead woman was a waste... The setting of South America (I think) was a dumb place for ninjas to be training... The multi racial, unisexual ninjas were a budget problem... And to top it off, NO STEVE JAMES! (Rip) What probably really hurt this flik was the fact that Joe and Sean didnt appear on screen together until the last 10 minutes of the film
2 Stars for the unusually good score put to the fighting and for the excellently choreographed Forest and Training scenes, but that's it... This movie is only for the curious who are getting bored with fast actioned kung fu fliks of today

5.0 out of 5 stars True American is Back! Feb. 2 2003
By Timotee
Format:VHS Tape
Forget "American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt," that movie will make anyone pay money for someone to get rid of it. Joe Armstrong (Michael Dudikoff) is back this time as an environmentalist preacher, also retired from the Peace Corps. Yes! Sean Davidson, now a CIA agent (David Bradley) is captured by a group of ninjas led by an ex-soldier named Mulgrew (James Booth). He wasn't pure ninja like Armstrong, silly wannabe. Mulgrew has plans for domination with a plan. Intelligence. "American Ninja 4: The Annihilation" is pure ninja. If Carl Douglas had a music video for "Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting," this movie would be it. Michael Dudikoff did deserve an Oscar for his performance (he hardly spoke and just fought ninjas). I've noticed ten year old boys have driven cars in these ninja movies. Won't those ninjas ever learn not to mess with lordage?

1.0 out of 5 stars All Time worst movie I've ever seen March 30 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This was honestly the most godaweful movie I've ever seen. At first I thought it was a comedy and I'm still not sure it isn't because of some HORRENDOUS cliche's used in the movie. Not to mention that there are fight scenes that epitimize the essence of cheesy. Like catching the arrow from a crossbow in mid air with his teeth, and then with a flick of his head, spitting the arrow out to kill a bad guy. I wonder what the director was thinking to waste so much time and money creating such [junk]. I feel ashamed for even having spent time to watch it.

Michael Dudikoff is the only reason to watch this film because David Bradley is such a bad actor. I guess the reason why not to buy 4 is because the fights are lacking dash and spirit which 1 and 2 had excitement this one is for the Die-Hard American Ninja fans but others like people who like high artistic quality don't touch American Ninja 4:The Annhilation with a ten foot pole.
