The three Ninjas are back for some more
12 July 2020 | by Min111See all my reviews

This is the sequel to 3 Ninjas. The three ninjas are back for some more action in this sequel. The three ninjas, Rocky, Colt and Tum Tum go to a country called Japan to help their trainer or grandpa Mori. The three ninjas actual names are Samuel, Jeffrey and Michael. These other names, Rocky, Colt and Tum Tum, happen to be their nicknames. I know...these nicknames are cool! The sequel is okay, but it's definitely not as good as the first one - 3 Ninjas. I even think the other sequel called '3 Ninjas Knuckle Up' is better than the '3 Ninjas Kick Back'. The '3 Ninjas Knuckle Up' was released after '3 Ninjas Kick Back'. I say it's better because the cast is the same just like in the first film: 3 Ninjas. That's not the case with '3 Ninjas Kick Back'. Although '3 Ninjas Kick Back' was released after the 3 Ninjas, it's actually the third film of the series. The other movie, '3 Ninjas Knuckle Up' was shot alongside '3 Ninjas', and is the second film in the series despite being released after '3 Ninjas Kick Back'. To make it clear, it's the '3 Ninjas', '3 Ninjas Knuckle Up' and '3 Ninjas Kick Back'. That's the order to see it in. I know it's confusing, but I hope I cleared that up for you readers. The first two films are fine, but the third one 'Kick Back' was the weakest entry. It would've been a good film had the cast been 'exactly' the same in the first film. It's still watchable if that's what you want to know. I like all the movies in the series. My favourite ninja is Michael or Tum Tum. I think he's cute as a ninja. I also like their Grandpa. I think it's funny that they have a Japanese grandfather. Somehow, it just works. That's why I like these 3 Ninjas movies.
