Surf Ninjas (1993)
Don't understand the negative reviews...
People say this movie is awful, that is not true.
You can't possibly compare movies like this to something by Spielberg, Kurosawa or Scorcese. They are made as nothing more than movies to just give you a good time. The same kind of movie is something like Commando, The Mask.
They were never made with the intention of winning Oscars, setting new horizons, excelling in cinematography. They were made only for use to have a few laughs and a good time.
Sure the plot is predictable. But I dare anyone to say they didn't laugh at Nielsen as the bumbling Colonel Chi, or a young Schneider as the wise cracking Iggy. The screenplay is excellent. "I'm now up el creeko, de merde". The fight scenes aren't up to the sort of standard you'd find in Chinese movies ala Young Master, Iron Monkey, but they are well above the standard fight scenes seen in movies even today. Due to the fact Ernie Reyes Sr, and Jr are competent fighters.
This movie has all the components for an entertaining movie. Its short, its funny, it has action, its not violent, and is perfect for kids.
I saw this movie in cinemas when it came out, and I since its DVD release, I felt I HAD to add it to my collection. This movie never disappointed. Hence, I don't rank this as anything other than a popcorn flick, in which case it gets a nice, big fat 8 from me.
