Trivia

When shooting this movie, Alexander Rei Lo was also making another movie with the same crew, so when they were at a specific location (e.g. a waterfall), they shot one scene from one script then quickly had him change clothes and make up and shot the scene from the other script in the same location.

Goofs

In one of the first scenes in the police department, Lt. Ronnie Kwun looks at Tyger McPherson's alleged personal files (with the war-picture from Vietnam attached), but the text on the paper he's looking at is actually the script from the movie, with all the dialogue from the previous scene.

Is this a joke?
24 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

If it is, it's a really, really bad one. I just can't understand why a movie like this was made. Where did the funding (or more accurate: lack of funding) come from? Didn't the people behind this movie realise they had made the worst thing ever when this was finished? It's an even bigger surprise knowing that some smart people out there released it on DVD as well. But I guess I'm the biggest fool of all myself, since I in fact used money (biggest mistake ever) on this total, terrible disaster of a movie. "USA Ninja" has the worst dubbing of all time. Pretty strange actually, because it looks like most of the actors spoke English anyway. The movie takes place in the States, but it just seems a little weird with jungle and Asian architecture everywhere. The fight scenes are just plain comical, and I had no problem in seeing that many of them were fast-forwarded and even rewinded!!!

Just forget about all other things I have said about the worst movie ever. This IS IT. Things just can't get any worse.
