Trivia

This film was not originally intended to be part of the American Ninja franchise. Cannon Pictures made it under the title American Dragons (it is even shown on many cable TV stations with this title) but the title was changed to American Ninja V before release. This explains why star David Bradley plays Joe, a different character than the Sean Davidson character he played in American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt and American Ninja 4: The Annihilation. See more »

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 »

Quotes

Viper: Who are you?
Hiro: You killed my father!
Viper: I kill many fathers.

Made for TV
21 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

This movie has a PG-13 rating in America. Why? I don't know...

It should have been just PG for it's time and not the rating is TV-14. You can show this movie on any of the local stations without editing.

Of course it would be late night. I had no problems letting my kids watch this show. In fact it has less violence than today's cop shows and less adult situations than some stupid comedy on evening TV.

In fact I think the movie is up there with the Ninja Turtles. However, Ninja Turtles had better acting.

Yes you can watch this if there is nothing else on TV. However, I would rather take a nap.
