Mindless fodder
13 December 2002 | by (Dundee, Scotland) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this film when I was about twelve and even then I found it rather pathetic. The characters were all wooden and the props in the background could have acted better. I mean, ask yourself why grown men- supposedly hardened criminals- would be struck down by a ten-year-old boy.

Speaking of the kid, he was just too odd and arrogant to pass as a popular, normal boy. His uncle is being stalked by criminals and here is this brat nattering on nonsense about ninja codes (not to mention, by his facial expressions, he looked quite constipated in the scenes he was using his karate). Meanwhile his teenage sister had the spine of a jellyfish. She just stood back like one of those pathetic fifties female characters while her kid brother fought off adult men. Those minutes she was on screen must have set women's lib back decades.

Seriously, if you want a martial arts film for your kids, you're better off watching '3 Ninjas' where the children are realistically portrayed and the acting is half-decent.
