what a fantastic blast from the past. the comedy, the generic character dynamics, and the morals hold up even now more than a decade later.
the movie centers around 3 children - rocky, colt, and tum tum (the last who is too young to be anything but comedic relief) and their quest to help their grandfather return a mythical dagger. but along the way, they utilize their grandfather's teachings on being a ninja (using "ninjuity" - their words, not mine) and begin an adventure that strikes of an indiana jones tale on a smaller, tamer scale.
the camera pans are excellent - probably an unnoticed feature of the movie is the way they show first person perspective, and the way they shoot japan from the perspective of the 3 ninjas. the comedy is gold (at least for the time).
the movie is designed for children and engages in childish humor - you have silly slapstick, childish repartee, fart jokes, and the whole gamut of tame childhood morals and experiences.
i have never seen any other 3 ninjas movie, but i do know i saw this one over and over again when i was a kid. i heavily recommend it for kids although adults won't appreciate it as much or at all if they're seeing it for the first time. otherwise the nostalgia factor is super high.
