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.Written by

Okay, art it isn't, but this movie is rather cute! I don't understand why it wasn't better received. I rented it on video a few months after it was released, mostly because of Ernie Reyes Jr, and I quite enjoyed the film. All right, so maybe the acting wasn't top-notch, maybe the script wasn't Oscar-worthy, but it was great for 90 minutes of entertainment. Upon reading some reviews I wonder what some people expect for a ninja movie? If you want tons of silly laughs then see this movie.
