Trivia

Michael Dudikoff turned down the lead role in this film for several reasons, among them being the fact that he didn't want to get burned out on martial-arts movies and didn't want to go back to South Africa--where American Ninja 2: The Confrontation (1987) was made--as he was firmly against the apartheid movement and government in that country. He returned for the fourth "American Ninja" entry because it was to be filmed in the nearby African country of Lesotho. See more »

not quite as good as the two previous movies
8 April 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

i didn't mind this movie all that much,although i don't think it measures up to the previous two in the series.Michael Dudikoff may not be the greatest actor,but in my opinion,he's much better than David Bradley,who plays the American Ninja in this movie.plus i also like Dudikoff's character more.the plot in this one is almost a carbon copy of the second one,save for the beginning sequence,which sets up the rest of the movie.Steve James appears in this one as well,and has some good lines.he's probably the best actor of the bunch.the fighting sequences are lacklustre to me and not that well executed compared to the previous movie.still,the movie is entertaining enough.for me,American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt is a 6/10
