Brothers Johnny, an adolescent surf talent, and Adam, a preadolescent video-game addict, grow up care-free in California as adopted sons of Marines veteran Mac, inseparable friends of wacky local lout Iggy. Colonel Chi's military reign of terror culminates in their tiny birth-land, island state Patu San, off the Viet Nam coast. Former royal guards officer Zatch comes to summon the brothers to return and restore the pacific monarchy, because they are the sons of the murdered king, whom Mac took in exile for safety. They are joined on the adventurous journey by a bored Californian police detective whose attention was drawn by the ninja team that failed, thanks to Zatch, to murder the brothers in Mac's home.

The portable video game system Adam plays throughout the movie is the Sega Game Gear, a handheld version of the Sega Master System. It was Sega's answer to the Nintendo Game Boy, which came out a year earlier. See more
After the house blows up, while Johnny is arguing with Zatch he mentions the former residence being in Ocean Park, which is in Santa Monica, California. The location of the actual house is in Hermosa Beach, which is about 15 miles south of Ocean Park, though it's implied that Johnny and Adam lived in Santa Monica (they pass by the Santa Monica Pier as they're driving to school).
