Storyline

Brothers Johnny, an adolescent surf talent, and Adam, a preadolescent video-game addict, grow up care-free in California as adopted sons of Marines veteran Mac, inseparable friends of wacky local lout Iggy. Colonel Chi's military reign of terror culminates in their tiny birth-land, island state Patu San, off the Viet Nam coast. Former royal guards officer Zatch comes to summon the brothers to return and restore the pacific monarchy, because they are the sons of the murdered king, whom Mac took in exile for safety. They are joined on the adventurous journey by a bored Californian police detective whose attention was drawn by the ninja team that failed, thanks to Zatch, to murder the brothers in Mac's home.

One of those movies
16 February 2002 | by studhead182See all my reviews

This was one of my favorite movies like in 3rd grade... I loved watching ninja movies as a kid and i still do and this one is still fun to watch... Probably still one of my favorite movies. Has a great cast and it's really funny. The acting wasn't great but it was good. And this movie was pretty predictable. But wouldn't you think it would be cool. If it happened to you?
