Excepting Enter the Dragon, this film by far is the best.
6 May 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I have seen this film, which I recorded on vcr some 18 years ago, about 10 times and each time I watch it is like watching a new film. This film is not boring but keeps you glued to the screen and with the exception of Enter the Dragon, this film by far is the best of the others. A great pity that it is not available either on video or dvd and somebody should put together a petition to the studio/distributors which all and sundry could sign on the internet, to put this film on dvd. Michael Beck and Nancy Kwan are well suited to their roles as is Mako who is the guiding hand moulding his adopted son to become "the last ninja".The martial art fight scenes are quite impressive and I would recomend this film to viewers of all ages.
