Goofs

The head bad guys in this movie must really hire and train some incompetent thugs. In one scene in a slum alley, one of the good guys, Dexter, easily defeats a supposedly "professional" ninja. This is unlikely, since it would require years of special, intense training to do so, and it is never revealed that Dexter ever had such training. See more »

Quotes

The Cobra: But I am glad that I can tell you that there will be no more inefficient hijackings, no more bungled kidnappings or mistimed bombings, because you see now terrorism can be scientifically focused to be totally effective!

"American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt" - Ye-ah! (as Lil' Jon would say)
11 April 2006 | by ((Near) D/FW Airport, Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

Pow! Who's the hot, cool cucumber who works out daily, practices his shooting techniques and martial arts daily, and always puts the baddies where they belong? Why, the American Ninja, of course! And there are five movies starring the "Hero of America!" "American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt" is one of them!

This is one movie that you, the action movie fan, must spend Friday nights watching! This will keep you on the edge of your chair or sofa so much, you'll land on the floor and hurt your...well, you know...

If only there were a million of those "American Ninjas..."

...think of how better this place can be! A true, blue, red-blooded American movie like this gets the ten star treatment! Have fun watching this movie!
