Such disappointment I had a lot fun watching the first two films of the franchise, but the cheap clunker that's "American Ninja 3" just didn't click for me. Was it that Michael Dudikoff didn't show up maybe so, but in all I just found it to be completely flat and the bad guys just really lacking. David Bradley was the new American ninja (the courageous karate champion driven by tragedy and hunger) with only Steve James reappearing as Curtis Jackson. At least you can count on James (breaking bones and making quips) for some much needed spark ("Let's go kick some ass!") and of course ripping off his top for some ninja combat. It's comic-book style makes sure the story throws up many nonsensical twists and turns most of it unintentionally comical with its actions (driving around with a ninja in your passenger seat yeah that's not suspicious) or dialogues. After awhile the plot became a little too convoluted and because of that quite uninterestingly dumb (meditation vs. virus you know as they say; mind and soul over the body). A sophisticated villain (with a lethal name Cobra, but there's no venom evident --- it's all talk) with ambitious plans for making an unstoppable weapon by injecting Bradley's character with a dangerous virus. Working for him just happens to be ninjas but these graceless ninjas (where in one sequence they play stacks on) are a worthless bunch (judging by the sloppy fight choreography and their constant beatings --- although the underwater scene and James' two in one sword fight do look good) even one of them decides to change sides after just realising how bad Cobra's intentions are. "I did not know they were evil." Huh, didn't this guy constantly have war criminals/terrorists dropping by for tea and coffee. Not evil? Obviously their ninja abilities must have been clouded. Basic, violent but lame no-brainer b-grade throwaway.
