American Ninja was still a compltely awful movie. But educational in its own awful way. Now when I see my next ninja movie I'll have something to compare it to. Full Review

Product Description:

All-American Joe Armstrong possesses the unique skills of ninjitsu, the deadliest of the orient's arts of assassination. He gets his chance to use it when he's pitted against an international drug dealer.

Plot Synopsis:

An American G.I. in the Philippines suffering from amnesia for the last six years is aloof from everyone in his army unit. He meets a girl, the daughter of the commanding officer, and saves her from a group of Ninjas who are in the service of an illegal arms dealer. He then manages to capture the dealer with help from his first sensei, who ironically is employed by the arms dealer.


Production Notes:

  • This film is actually the third martial arts film directed by Sam Firstenberg, and the fourth in this particular series. Michael Dudikoff took a role which was originally scheduled for Chuck Norris.
