Surf Ninjas (1993)
Also known as Surf Warriors, this film is a low-budget, offbeat comedy aimed at the teen audience. Two young surfer dudes from southern California, Johnny (Ernie Reyes, Jr.) and Adam (Nicolas Cowen), have their lives changed when they discover that they are heirs to the crown of Patu San, an obscure South Pacific island nation. The country's throne has been taken over by an incompetent, evil warlord, Colonel Chi (Leslie Nielsen). As the two surfer heroes travel to Patu San to regain the throne, Colonel Chi sends mercenaries to stop them. Johnny and Adam find that they have been given magical powers to help them in their quest -- one of them becomes instantly skilled at kung fu, and the other has psychic powers. Rap music artist Tone Loc plays one of Colonel Chi's henchmen, Lieutenant Spence. Martial arts sequences dominate the fighting scenes, which evoke the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles craze of the era. … More

Critic Reviews for Surf Ninjas
[Boasts] a concise, witty script, an extremely likeable and attractive group of performers, and an abundance of exciting, well-staged kung-fu combat scenes.
Oh, gee, have I given too much away? Is there something in this lyrical narrative that can't be detected in the first five minutes?
What do ninjas and surfers have to do with each other? You've got me, and I heroically sat through all of Surf Ninjas.
Action is relatively mild for the genre and, unfortunately, so are the jokes.
No, no, no, No, NO!
Mystery Science Theater could have a field-day with this!
Another of Hollywood's efforts to prove that the American mall mentality is at home in any corner of the globe.
In all its corny mayhem, Surf Ninjas manages to have some fun mixed in with the parts that wipe out.
Any inspiration there might have been as this film was prepared was somewhere along the way passed by in favor of the same old thing.
They surf in the first half and ninja in the second, but this light comedy adventure never really takes off.
It's a real riot when a guy goes tumbling and thudding down a 300-step flight of stone stairs only to climb back up and do it again. What inspired comedy!

Ninja nonsense! This action-comedy family film mix of several different genres loses focus, but kids will get a big kick out of it.More
