It would have been a terrible film regardless, but man, Steve James deserved to be the action star after Dudikoff declined to continue onboard. Pretty much everything sucks. Bradley's fighting is actually not so bad - some of it's really tight, actually, but choreography and direction are terrible. Some of the action scenes would do better in a telenovela, actually.

Another cheese fest from the Cannon Group. This sequel was minus Michael Dudikoff, and not that the prior films are exactly classics, but this sequel is far worse than it's predecessors. A new American goes to Japan to learn to be a ninja, but ends up avenging the death of his father and fighting a terrorist named "The Cobra." The film features underwater ninja fighting, and an ultralight landing on a moving truck (though I"m not sure why he didn't just land on the ground and load it on the truck), and some of the most slow moving martial arts scenes you've ever seen. I do like Steve James, who returns as Jackson, but there's not much here to recommend outside of watching it for camp value.

Jackson (Steve James, American Ninja 1&2) is back & now he has a new partner, karate champion Sean (David Bradley), as they face a terrorist known as "The Cobra".
The score for the film is mainly just a sample from composer 'George S Clinton's previous score for Avenging Force, another Cannon Group movie which ironically was directed by Sam Firstenberg, and starred Michael Dudikoff and Steve James, the same trio which made American Ninja 1 and 2. Blood Hunt turns out to be a rushed project, just to try & cash in on the somewhat popular (in the US), action franchise. This is a basic and horrible tale of revenge, with a drop in the writting & fight choreography department. Its a watchable film & there's been worse, but maybe consider skipping this one.

Sale Michael Dudikoff y entra David Bradley quien hace lo imposible: Actuar peor que Dudikoff. El sueno me vencio tres veces al intentar ver esta cochinada y al final, quede arrepentido. Es mejor tomarse una siesta que perder el tiempo con semejante esperpento.

I liked this one marginally better than #2. Dudikoff is out, but I don't consider him a big draw, so David Bradley is okay with me ... barely okay, but okay. Steve James is still here, which is the important thing anyway. Marjoe Gortner is the villain and that's never a bad thing. Where #2 tended to be a little dull at times, this one is just batshit crazy. It makes little sense and I love it for that.

My favorite of the series, simply for the many corny lines and some decent martial arts that my friends and I tried to reenact unsuccessfully. Ah memories!

ok cause it has the late great Steve James in it if it didn't it would've been totally naff. David Bradley no replacement for michael dudikoff

What made the original movie special was the fact that the concept of an American ninja was so rare. No one had ever heard of one. Now we get introduced to a second American trained in the ways of the ninja. A mistake to move on without Dudikoff.

A new American Ninja battles a pharma company producing a lethal germ for terrorists and also employing ninjas on staff. Steve James probably deserved to assume the lead in this series. Film's biggest challenge is accepting anyone other than Dudikoff in the role of the American Ninja.

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.

Much worse than it's predecessor.

Parempi kuin ensimmäinen jatko-osa joskis kyllä tämäkin elokuva aiheuttaa monta myötä häpeän tunnetta. Juurikin ehkä se tekeekin tästä viihdyttävämmän kun välillä saat nauraa silmät vedellä uskomattomia hyvis ninjoja ja todella ääliömäisiä pahis ninjoja jotka tulevat vastaan kuin Nintendon Turtles II pelin pahikset.
Propsit myös musiikista joka on oikein toimivaa vaikkakin ajoittan hyvinkin yksinkertaista.
Näyttelijöistä nyt en lähde kummemmin kirjoittamaan, Steve James oli vissiinkin taas tehnyt tähänkin sopparin jossa lupautuu tappelemaan ilman paitaa :P
