Critic Reviews for American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt
Audience Reviews for American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt
Curtis Jackson (Steve James) is back for another action packed movie, but sadly Michael Dudikoff who played Joe Armstrong in the first two films isn't. Instead, Jackson meets another American Ninja who goes by the name of Sean Davidson (David Bradley) 'The Cobra' (Marjoe Gortner) infects Davidson with a virus, which was experimented on guinea pigs. Curtis "Action" Jackson, Davidson and Dexter (Evan J. Klisser) team up to face The Cobra and his engineered Ninja clones. This film doesn't seem to be as good as the first two films. Steve Jackson seems to have more of a role in this film, but the film is missing Dudikoff. There's two sequels to this film. American Ninja 4: The Annihilation (1990), which does feature Michael Dudikoff. The final film in the collection is American Ninja 5 (1993), which again, doesn't feature Michael Dudikoff. This film doesn't seem to follow the story from the previous four films. Also, catch American Ninja (1985) and American Ninja 2: The Confrontation (1987)
David Bradley is no martial artist. Michael Dudikoff might not have been Bruce Lee reincarnate, but he more than gave it a good, ol' college try. Steve James is back, still playing the sidekick. He is actually far more interesting than Bradley and his presence alone bumps it up another star.
American Ninja 3 was a drop-off in the series and not just because of the lack of Michael Dudikoff. The story doesn't flow as well as the previous two. The fight scenes were ok but nothing great. That being said, this is still a fun movie to watch when watching with the rest of the series.
