"I must CONFRONT my anger"
1 stars

Here we go again; our American Ninja and his black sidekick are at it again, this time with even more laughable and stupid results.

The same list of clichés is regurgitated once again in this moronic mess of a movie. Army buddies Armstrong (Michael Dudikoff) and Jackson (Steve James) this time show up in a Caribbean Island disguised as Marines (?!) to try and help them solve the disappearance of several Marines. And we later find out that they’re being kidnapped by some bad-ass dude and his equally bad-ass Ninja-right-hand man to be used in some weird-ass scientific experiment in order to conquer and dominate the world with DNA mutant ninjas. So, it’s up to Armstrong and Jackson to save the day.

If you’re not laughing by now you better start cringing up. This is one of the most pointless, ridiculously laughable, utterly atrocious sequels ever made, and one of the most ludicrous plots ever, both cinematically and scientifically. And once again our American Ninja must conquer another hot babe while at the same time ridding the world from those evil ninjas. I just have to wonder, what the hell was that bar fight with those bar jocks? Man, that was truly the most laughter I’ve ever had in a while, especially the blond guy who gets his arm broken and then later shows up like nothing ever happened. Time to yell the classic line: Oh, the humanity!

There was only one comedic scene where I actually laughed when they meet the commander in that fucked up limousine, but not even that can save this crap. Once again, ninjas get slashed to death and in the end, the marines kick their asses. And that bad ninja is defeated by the American ninja, as usual. Can we move on to the end-credits please?

Brought to you by the notorious hacks at Cannon, this film is sure to slash your colon off… that is if you don’t slash your wrists first in order to stop the pain. 0-5
