Like if the utter idiocy that was American Ninja 3 and 4 wasn’t even enough to kill this worthless franchise, they had to go and waste people's time and money do another American Ninja movie. And with this film, they have written history because they have managed to make 4 consecutive movies with the latest being even worse than the one before it. This one of course, is the bottom of the flotsam.To top it off, David Bradley doesn’t even return as Sean Davidson, his original character. He now returns as Joe Kastle, and fans (does this series have any fans?) will ultimately cringe at seeing this latest alteration, while the rest of the world will cringe at seeing the usual crapola of ninjas (this time VENEZUELAN NINJAS FOR FUCK’S SAKE) and ridding the world from some evil dumb-ass. Add a tinge of Indiana Jones formula since it includes the little sidekick this time (Lee Reyes), who wants to be like Joe. Who wouldn’t, I wonder?
And Pat Morita shows up for a cameo. I guess to give this film some bankability since this thing is pretty much straight to video material, but since Pat Morita is more or less a hack nowadays and back then thanks to Karate Kid 3, I doubt it was going to help a damn thing since this film is utter and total shit anyways.You know the drill, skip it. 0-5
