The movie is saddled with a junky visual style, haphazard editing and occasional out-of-focus shots.

Can the trio use their ninja secrets to escape? Will granddad defeat the gun-runner in hand-to-hand combat? If you can't guess the answers to these questions you are under 11 and will absolutely love this film.

The film can't seem to make up its mind whether it wants to be a comedy, a fantasy or an adventure film.

A Frankenstein of a movie, an unhappy creature stitched together out of the body parts of other movies.
