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.
