Did You Know?

Trivia

The "What Is a Ninja?" speech is mentioned three times in this film. Each time it is said, Colt is always the one who says Spirit. Everyone else gets to mention Heart, Mind and Body. See more »

Goofs

When the boys are ordering the tickets to Tokyo using their grandpas recording from the answering machine, Colt plays the part where Mori Shintaro screams. The problem is after the lady asks if the price is OK Colt makes the tape say "yeah everything" , but the problem is their grandpa said "yeah they took everything" so there would be no way Colt could get past those two words that fast without listening to make sure he hit the right words.

Bad, bad, bad
3 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

Did a sequel really need to be made? Was the first movie that big a success? The series gets even worse after this one, and I am left wondering how far the premise of three kids beating up any bad guys that dare show themselves can be taken.
