Martial arts comedy has stylized violence, outdated terms.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that 3 Ninjas: Knuckle Up is a fun martial arts movie in the 3 Ninjas series with fight scenes and some use of weaponry. It is slightly more intense than the film's sequel. The plot involves the three ninjas -- Colt (Max Elliott Slade), Rocky (Michael Treanor), and Tum Tum (Chad Power) -- taking on a corrupt businessman who is dumping toxic waste on Native American land. There is also a kidnapping subplot. The movie has many fights, with the children performing martial arts against adults in well-choreographed and often funny ways. Some adults have weapons, including switchblades and baseball bats. The movie uses the term "Indians" when referring to Native Americans. But other than that, the movie is positive with regards to representation. The ninjas experience a number of Native American customs and ceremonies and are entirely enthusiastic. They also become enlightened by taking the time to listen to a Native American philosophy. Infrequent mild language includes "buttheads" and "dork."
