Following their grandfather to Japan, the three underage ninjas find themselves in the middle of martial arts mayhem. Pursued by a bumbling trio of brain-dead thieves and an army of well-trained ninjas, Rocky, Colt, and Tum Tum are up to their ears in high-kicking action and rapid-fire comedy. For his first U.S. film, veteran South Korean filmmaker Simon Sheen, aware of the growing trend in family-oriented movies, decided to combine the subject of Asian martial arts with an American children's comedy.

Immature humor, sexism in trite '90s sequel.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Three Ninjas: Kick Back is a 1994 movie that is part of the Three Ninjas series. There is martial arts-style violence throughout, as well as slapstick Home Alone-style pratfalls and violence. The humor is very childish: During a Little League game, an overweight boy who eats a lot passes gas that makes all the other players, coaches, and umpires faint. There also is some bullying and name-calling during the baseball games. Characters laugh at an Asian girl who is learning English who confuses the word "bat" for "butt." Also of concern is how girls are regarded in terms of playing sports or participating in martial arts; the three lead boy characters are flabbergasted that a girl would even try to participate in any of these activities. Overall, these sexist attitudes date this movie more than the haircuts and clothing.
