True American is Back!
Timotee | Torrance, CA USA | 02/02/2003

"Forget "American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt," that movie will make anyone pay money for someone to get rid of it. Joe Armstrong (Michael Dudikoff) is back this time as an environmentalist preacher, also retired from the Peace Corps. Yes! Sean Davidson, now a CIA agent (David Bradley) is captured by a group of ninjas led by an ex-soldier named Mulgrew (James Booth). He wasn't pure ninja like Armstrong, silly wannabe. Mulgrew has plans for domination with a plan. Intelligence. "American Ninja 4: The Annihilation" is pure ninja. If Carl Douglas had a music video for "Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting," this movie would be it. Michael Dudikoff did deserve an Oscar for his performance (he hardly spoke and just fought ninjas). I've noticed ten year old boys have driven cars in these ninja movies. Won't those ninjas ever learn not to mess with lordage?"
Half assed attempt with shortcomings everywhere

"I remember how back in 91 this was THE movie to see... Dudikoff (Joe Armstrong) was coming back and was teaming with the new guy... The previews showed clips of both American Ninjas fighting each other and you couldn't have been more excited... Unfortunately, the best fighting we see was in the beginning 30 minutes and came from a real martial artist in David Bradley (Sean Davidson)... This movie was a complete gimmick from the start with the idea of Dudikoff returning and it failed to produce... Dudikoff was underused and his "martial arts" was sub-par... The tacky groups of allies from the garbage dump with their homemade weapons were a joke... The little kid who knew everything sucked... The black side kick guy was pointless... The lead woman was a waste... The setting of South America (I think) was a dumb place for ninjas to be training... The multi racial, unisexual ninjas were a budget problem... And to top it off, NO STEVE JAMES! (Rip) What probably really hurt this flik was the fact that Joe and Sean didnt appear on screen together until the last 10 minutes of the film2 Stars for the unusually good score put to the fighting and for the excellently choreographed Forest and Training scenes, but that's it... This movie is only for the curious who are getting bored with fast actioned kung fu fliks of today"
"Sean, You Can Find Me At The School" ~ Dudikoff And Bradl

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Michael Dudikofff of 'American Ninja' 1 & 2 comes out of retirement to save David Bradley of 'American Ninja' 3 who is captured in Africa by a band of evil ninja's. Say what you want but I love this movie. After all, who doesn't love story's where a few brave warriors defeat all odds and the enemy to save the day!
Obviously not an Academy Award winner, but who cares. This is a total guy film. A couple of buddies with a six pack or two and you're good to go! Not to forget, the late Robin Stille is a very attractive addition to the story."
Ninja Vengeance meet The Final Sacrifice minus the Rowsdower

"Sid never believes in living with regret no matter what the situation may be. Even though there has been many missed opportunities we tend to find the best in the situation to make it hilarious. The only situation we can't get past is the fact we didn't spend more of our youth watching Ninja B action. Due to a certain Dutch making the genre seem terrible we spent years passing on them thinking they were something very different from what they are. These films are sheer genius that meet every criteria we look for. From bad acting, to awful scripted fight scenes, to laughable romance situations the Ninja world has it all.
American Ninja 4, yeah they made a total of 5 of these babies, CIA agent Sean Davidson and a guy named Carl (who looks exactly like the nerdy black guy from Ninja Vengeance) are sent on a mission to rescue Delta Force commandos that have been captured. Their captor is some British lunatic named Mulgrew whose acting is simply hilarious. In addition to his acting he has an army of ninjas that are trained in some type of death boot camp. Sir yes Sir! Once Sean and Carl are captured America must send in their secret weapon known as Joe Armstrong to take care of business ninja style.
Being that it was show at 12:45 am was the perfect compliment to a movie worthy of 5 stars and an upcoming Woody Award. It had absolutely everything you will need from a low budget Ninja action forcing you to wonder what the other in the series hold. There are more then a handful of WTF moments in addition to a Don Mattingly Factor of 3. The fighting is something right out of the book of Ninja Vengeance as guys go flying despite no actual contact being made. Just perfect in every way. So for anybody out there we must recommend American Ninja 4 with the utmost regard."
