Again, good for the kids, but I'm questioning that even
29 June 2006 | by Smells_Like_CheeseSee all my reviews

The 3 ninjas must now stop another evil and greedy man from dumping toxic waste onto the Indian land. A little girl's father is captured and "tortured" after finding out the secrets of why the toxic waste is being dumped and he has a disk with all the wastes that were disposed onto his land. When the boys help this girl out, they also free her father and know they have to tell the government what is going on and make sure that the Idian's land is safe.

I'm starting to wonder how the boys always get into this much trouble? The last two situations were somewhat believable, but these boys just need to either grow up or let the grown up's handle the jobs. But I think the kids will again enjoy this silly sequel.

2/10
