    I would have watched this film over 50 times growing up, but Cannon had that niche in the market. American Ninja is a bad film, but if you are a young teenage boy, this film has everything. The filmmaking is laughable and the action scenes are repetitive to the point of being super boring. Dudikoff was a good choice, but he knows little to no ninja skills. The music is over the top and those action scenes are poorly staged, the scene with the jeep and the motor bike was cringe worthy. This a so bad, it's bad film and nothing will take that away. It will serve as a guilty pleasure for the target market, but sadly for someone looking bad at the films that inspired him. This just never holds up. 24/01/2019.

    <b>I like Michael Dudikoff but strange some of his Movies I nearly felt asleep. I think I have seen only 4 of his Movie from the beginning till the End.

    Michael Dudikoff walks around with a permanent botox face, and stumbles through his karate scenes. Pure cheese!
