Did You Know?


The theatrical trailer as well as several TV spots for this film included the popular "We should run. We should hide. We should kick their butts!" line used in the first movie. However, in the actual film, only the final part is used by Tum Tum who rephrases it as "Let's kick their butts!" See more »


As Miyo, Tum Tum and Colt are going to follow Rocky down the slide he falls down in the cave of gold, the little wheel cart/mechanism used to slide the three down is clearly viable when they hop on it and slide down. You can see a white board when they sit down, yet when they slide away you can tell the white board is gone. See more »

another great movie:)
24 March 2003 | by (Bristol, VA) – See all my reviews

well, I don't care what others say about this movie. it is a wonderful sequel and although I liked the two ninjas they had in the first one, they did a good job replacing them, for whatever reason that they did. But to me it is still a ninja movie b/c it still has my fav ninja in it and it still has Grandpa. and they do a great job at making it feel like the other two had always been there.I love that this shows more of their sacrificial side and how when they find out that Grandpa is in trouble they drop every thing and will stop at nothing to get to him and help him. unlike most movies nowadays, it's clean and entertaining. that is amazing:) I really love it as I do the first and third ones. Even though they disagree a lot in the movie, they never once use their "Ninja Knowledge" to take on each other:) It's a wonderful movie, I've grown up with it and I thank God for the memories that I have with it.
