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

Good children's entertainment in the Canadian genre
6 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

Films for children don't need a point or much depth to be a success with children (cf. Harry Potter stories), which is what this film is all about. Fortunately, J. Evan Bonifant (3 Ninjas Kick Back, '94) surprises as a talented young actor of whom we may expect to see more.

James Hong (as "Wang"), a fine and experienced veteran actor, gives a very credible performance as a villain caught in a web of lies; his on-screen skills in switching characters lends support to the interest. His character, together with that of a comic Arab co-villain, exhibits a little xenophobia which director John Bradshaw, in his first movie as full director, failed to filter out, for one reason or another.

Still, all in all, a good effort for younger viewers.

Some "comic violence."
