Trivia

A number of high-level defectors from the Democratic People's Republic of North Korea have stated that 3 Ninjas Kick Back was a childhood favorite of Kim Jong Un, now Supreme Chancellor of the DPRK. He was apparently so taken with the film that his father, Kim Jong Il, reportedly commissioned a remake with Korean actors. See more »

Goofs

The father almost forfeits the baseball game because of a shortage of players, but after Rocky, Colt, TumTum, and the Japanese girl show up, a mass of kids are shown on the bench. See more »

summing up the movie and its awsomeness
25 November 2003 | by Ross1223See all my reviews

Shhh, i cant hear. Whats that? 3 Ninjas Kick back is the best movie ever? Yeah thats right it is!!! Way better than the first one, the gang travels to Japan to help out grampa. This movie is jam packed with action and it has ninjas which is always good. After i saw the first movie, i thought to myself, "how can they possibly top this?" Well guess what, they did! This one is so much better. Straight up non stop action. The music totally rocked too. I give it a 10 out of 10 as far as kiddie ninjas in japan flicks go.
