cool
6 January 2001 | by starsaturn33See all my reviews

Growing up, I really loved these movies. Sean Fox was the end-all be-all for me. I don't think that now, but I love this movie. The action, although corny, is still really awesome. Again, this is NO JACKIE CHAN, by any standards. But still, little kids as ninjas?? Also, Miyo was cool. Adding that little love story between her and Rocky was a given, but it was sweet. I love the part when he totally screws up the pitch because he keeps on thinking there are Lisa DiMarino's everywhere. And, "We should run!" "We should hide!" "LET'S KICK THEIR BUTTS!!!!!!!" LOL!

Again, I really am a kiddie-movie person, but I love this movie. If you're the same kind of person, rent this movie!!!
