American Ninja 4: The Annihilation (1990)

Watched this one yesterday. It was a decent flick.
Michael Dudikoff is back with David Bradley
and a sexy female lead Robin Stille (Slumber Party Massacre, Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama)

Evil arab has created a nuclear weapon and the Delta Force has been captured as prisoners
(i bet that Chuck Norris was not with them this time)
so it´s up to Bradley and Dudikoff to save the day.

First 45 minutes it´s Bradley solo, next 40 mins Dudikoff solo
and finally the last 10 mins they both fight together but not against same villain
and you can hardly see them on screen at the same time.
There´s something fishy here, the EGO´s i think

This movie has the most vicious villains in the series which was a nice surprise.
Once again the villains drive Mercedes Benz so the Cannon group still had the contract with them.
And once again the super ninja wasn´t so super after all.

Some good fight scenes, a really strange bar band (hey, this was shot in South Africa)
and i liked the end credits tune "Fight Fire With Fire".

Not nearly as bad as i thought it would be
but i hate the fact that Dudikoff makes a very nice looking sword but HE NEVER USES IT!!

Well i don´t know Jay.
I think that it was at least better than the 3rd part.
Even without Steve James.

Really?! Oh well, maybe I should check it out again.

Though, Steve James is what makes these movies for me. Maybe that's why.

Dang it...I know I've passed on some of these sequels before when I'd seen them in various stores for fairly cheap. You guys should consider advertising, as, everytime anyone on here talks about a movie...I suddenly want it...literally...all of them!

Finally watched American Ninja V (1993).
Now this was a disaster.

Not even Pat Morita couldn´t save it and btw, he was a ninja, now you know it.

The movie starts nicely with a training scene but it´s all downhill from then on.
Enter Master Tetsu (Morita) who introduces his nephew Hiro (Lee Reyes)
Damn this is one irritating kid!
Suddenly this movie turns out to be a family feature.

Hiro plays his Sega Game Gear, wants to be a ninja, wants this and that...

Once again a scientist is working for these evil men.
When the evil men ask too much and he says no,
it´s time to kidnap the daughter.
Suddenly our boys have a mission and this time they go to Venezuela.

Purple and white ninjas everywhere but not one of them can fight.
In this movie the master ninja is called Viper and he´s some kind of Wolverine wannabe with a cloak.

Damn i hate that "happy" melody which you can hear all the time:
when the guys are fooling around, during chase scenes etc.
Oh, i forgot, it´s a family flick.

I just don´t know why David Bradley decided to do this one.

Avoid!

It's the size of Steve James gums that makes it for me.
