Plot Summary

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.

Trivia There's a real Surf Ninjas game for the Sega Game Gear, but it's completely different from what Adam was playing. However, the game Adam plays in the movie is also real. It was developed by Sega exclusively for use in the movie only. See more »
Goofs Adam is playing the "Surf Ninjas" game on game gear but when they show the game gear, sometimes no game is in it or "Columns" another game is visible in the cartridge slot. See more »

Quotes Zatch: Something not even money can buy: the knives of Kwantsu.
Iggy: Knives? Oh yeah, seriously. That's something money can't buy. Knives. Once I went to a cutlery store and said 'Here's $100,000, can I buy a knife?' They said, 'NO. Money can't buy knives.' Gee, I guess that's why you hardly ever see any of 'em around.
[Later]
Iggy: On the third day of the expedition they came across a giant rubber plant. Unfortunately, they could not cut it down, for as we know, money can't buy knives. Walking around the plant, they continued on the shores of Patusan.
Zatch: Is there no way we can shut this chattering monkey up?
Lt. Spence: You know, I'd cut him. But, I don't have a knife.
