You, little grasshopper, are the wise one!
22 May 2006 | by ((Near) D/FW Airport, Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

This is such a funny film! I like how this film is full of, as many people refer to it, "camp." (BTW, what the heck does that mean, anyway?) Think of this movie as a spoof to all the awful dubbed Asian martial arts films. Instead of boring stuff, we get fun and funny stuff. Also think of this movie as "Airplane" or "Spaceballs," Orient style! (That's what I would call it) I'm sure if one really liked this film so much, might I recommend to you other movies such as Chris Farley's "Beverly Hills Ninja," or better yet, Hulk (American Tor Johnson) Hogan's "3 Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain" for good laughter at ninja comedy? Yes, I definitely would! Take that, Mr. Carradine!
