A wicked action ride
29 March 2002 | by chumcitymarkSee all my reviews

Ninja turf (AKA Los Angeles Streetfighter) stands as one of my all time fav b-movies. It's got everything you're looking for. Really bad lighting. 30 year old guys playing high school kids. Totally awesome action. Drugs. a horrible script and Philip Rhee! Only few stand this high on my b movie list. Check out Rock N roll nightmare, Let me die a woman, The Garbage Pail Kids movie and anything from the ninja kids series.
