3 Ninjas Reviews
Unlike most fighting movies, "3 Ninjas" has a lot of comedy involved with it. One of the funniest parts is when some kidnappers break into their house. They mix laxative with a drink and offer to give it to one of the kidnappers, and he takes it. On top of that, the fighting scenes are awesome as well. When I saw this movie the first time, I wanted to learn karate. I later signed up at a karate school and took it for about 4 months.
"3 Ninjas" is a great movie and if you don't mind seeing a comedy movie with some fighting in it, I recommend getting this movie. You'll never lose your interest while you're watching it. It's a lot better than the other 3 Ninja movies. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000. This was one of my favorite childhood movies and I know I'd still love watching it today, and I plan to buy it in due time.
The screenplay is pretty bad and there are a lot of inconceivable moments, but what holds the film up for me is the three stoner/surfer dudes who are ordered to kidnap the kids. They have the best lines of the film and I legitimately laugh whenever they do or say anything (one of my favorite exchanges between them is "Dude, what time does school get out?" "I don't know... I never stayed to the end.") 3 Ninjas is bad and I know it, but I enjoy it because it's so ghastly. My only defense for it is, "shut up."
