Storyline

Zack Hadley is on the verge of introducing a new alternative energy to the world: a unique environmentally friendly super battery capable of powering a car. But the oil cartels are not pleased with Zack's new invention. They send in their goons to kidnap Joe, Zack's son. The kidnappers get more than they bargained for in Joe, who is a technical whiz kid and the leader in a trio of environmentally friendly ninja kids. Now its up to these young eco-warriors to figure out who is behind all of this. The three sleuths uncover a plot to remove Zack and his family permanently! Worst of all they discover that Larry, Zack's partner, is the master criminal. With time running out, the kids rush to save Joe's parents. Pulling no punches, Maggie and Derek trash the goons while Joe outsmarts Larry in a whirlwind climax, saving his parents and the day. Written by Cinemavualt.com

It's Canadian - 'nuff said
7 December 2014 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

The 1990 Hollywood movie "Home Alone" was a big influence on the "Three Ninjas" movie series, and "Breakout" was obviously greatly influenced by the "Three Ninjas" movies. So what we have here is a rip-off of a rip-off! And not a particularly well done rip-off - in fact, it's awful in every way you can think of. It obviously had a brutally low budget, with the limited funds hurting the finished product from the cheesy cinematography to the limited set furnishings. The script itself is pretty bad, with its unfunny attempts at humor and its making of almost every character an annoying idiot. And the direction is hopeless, with the pathetic martial arts sequences to some big continuity gaps. It's no wonder why actors Robert Carradine and James Hong look extremely embarrassed to be here. Hopefully they just signed on this project for the money, but surely they had to have been offered better quality projects at the time this project was offered to them. Even the movie's target audience - kids - will more likely than not recognize this movie as the stinker it is.
