A film of its time but enjoyable and charming nonetheless.
… in 100 words:
A family film full of sport and martial arts; what more could you ask for? Well… though I thoroughly enjoyed 3 Ninjas Kickback as a child and still laughed at the same moments, if I was watching it with fresh eyes, things may be different. To me there was an underlying ignorance and to a certain extent, American arrogance. Looking back to the 90’s it is a product of its time, so it cannot be totally held against it. Then again the lack of accuracy is disrespectful (Korean music, not Japanese) and could’ve been avoided. Maybe I’m looking too deep.
