Before '3 Ninjas'...
4 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Films about marital arts have been around for some time. They vary in quality, but have remained popular. Of course the most famous are the ones starring the late Bruce Lee. These films always involved adults doing the fighting. 1984s 'The Karate Kid' was the first North American film to have a minor, but would not be the last. In the early 1990s, a new trend in movies was starting to emerge. These involved kids, who'd been trained in karate, up against some bad guys. This was the first of them.

Pros: Cast is game. Some lush scenery. Silly, but fun score. Humorous for all the wrong reasons. Moves at a decent pace. Has a Saturday morning cartoon quality.

Cons: Plot less. Very dated. Poor editing. Flat direction. Not too groundbreaking.

Final thoughts: This was a cheap production and it really show. That doesn't mean there isn't some fun to be had. What we have here is basically a live action cartoon. Worth picking up if you can find it for cheap.

My rating: 2.5/5
