Goofs

Throughout the film Lisa (Anne Dupont) doesn't wear any jewelery. When she is kidnapped, she is unconscious and carried away by the villain and is clearly wearing a metal watch on her left wrist. However, she was not wearing the watch up to the point where she is snatched by the villain and it's gone by the time she regains consciousness. See more »

why all the hate?
9 April 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

so this movie isn't actually a part of the American Ninja series.so the people behind this movie are guilty of capitalizing on the name of and popularity of the American Ninja brand.so what.they're not the first.if you can look beyond that,there's actually a pretty good little movie here.it's rated PG, so it's fairly family friendly.i thought the fight scenes were actually pretty good.the acting was also decent enough.the story is a familiar one.there a bit of the Karate Kid thrown in the mix,and i think based based on what i've read,there may be elements of The 3 Ninjas movies in there as well,but don't quote me on that last one.if you can view this as a stand alone movie, you might like it.i did.and i really liked it,and i don't have any problem admitting it.for me,American Ninja V is an 8/10
