In addition to being the only film not to feature the boys' parents, it is also the only one where the boys' real names (Samuel, Jeffrey and Michael) are never mentioned. They are only called by their ninja names in this film. See more »
Rocky keeps switching between having braces and not having braces, even though the movie spans a total of 2-3 days. For example, when Grandpa first tells the boys to listen to the flower and when Rocky and Colt first meet Jo, Rocky does not have braces. Yet the morning after the ninjas rescue Jo's father (when Grandpa throws an egg at them) Rocky has braces. Rocky also has braces at the pizza parlor. See more »
I'm a big fan of the 3 Ninjas series, the first one being my favorite. Knuckle Up is definitely the most action packed, the focus hardly on the story and more on flashy, Jackie Chan-like fight scenes. It's pretty unbelievable, how these pre-teen kids beat the snot out of full-grown armed men. In one scene, the bad guys have shotguns and they really hate those kids, but instead of shooting them, they prefer using the guns as clubs and try to whack them, but of course their plan fails.
The ninjas execute a number of impressive martial arts moves on their hapless foes, and even some unnecessary fake-outs just for show. This movie is good for a laugh, watch it if you like slap-stick humor and kids beating up wave after wave of foolish henchmen.
