    You should buy a gallon of V8 for your first viewing. You're gonna need it...

    I'm in the camp that hasn't seen this either. It seems to get a lot of attention which has me curious to check it out. I assume it's a standalone movie despite being labled as number 3.

    Oh yeah, definitely. It has nothing at all to do with the previous two films... besides having a "Ninja" (and Sho Kosugi) in the movie.

    ...which likewise have nothing to do with one another... other than both featuring Sho Kosugi playing ninja characters.

    True, which is why I put ...besides having a "Ninja" (and Sho Kosugi) in the movie.

    Glad to see Ninja III: The Domination getting some love around here and surprised at how many of you haven't seen it. And while Ninja III is good, goofy, WTF fun, Revenge of the Ninja (aka Ninja II) is the crown jewel of the trilogy and the height of 80's Cannon/American ninja movie action! Seek that one out too if you've never seen it.

    Yeah that's the holy grail humbly agree. Ninja 3 electric boogaloo 2 is just cheese. I can't stress enough Revenge of the ninja is incredible!

    Great purchase! Cannon's entire Ninja trilogy is worth having in your collection, but Revenge is easily the best of all three. This film wastes no time piling up the body count by the way. Have fun, man.

    Thanks man. Ninja 3 inspired me to get back into the genre (is "ninja movies" a genre?) LOL but when I was little I used to watch movies like Blood Sport, Kickboxer, American Ninja or pretty much any Jean Claude flick, on repeat constantly.

    Has anyone seen The Hunted? 1995 ninja flick. I watched 30 minutes of it at 3am a few weekends ago on HBO but I was hammmmmered and only remember laughing my ass off at all the ninjary madness! There's a train scene with dozens of ninjas fucking shit up.

    Don't forget about Enter the Ninja with Frank Nero from Cannon Films. Has a hilarious death scene. It's iconic.




    While you're at it. A must watch. GymKata (which needs to be on Blu-Ray STAT) Can't go around watching Ninja III and NOT see Gymkata. LOL




    And if you want "current" Ninja stuff, more serious films. since you're on a ninja kick.

    Then consider seeing these starring Scott Adkins. He's the freakin man, 100% the real deal. If you don't know Scott Adkins, then your missing out. Basically this current era's Sly, Arnold, Damme, Norris, etc... He's the hands down the BEST "fighting" action star in hollywood currently. Too bad nobody really knows about him, if he was around in the 80's , 90's he would a household name today. I suggest you check out his other films too. He basically started in the business playing opposite of Jean Claude Damme (this is where I was first introduced to Adkins) in a couple of Damme films. Now he has quite a few "straight to video" flicks where he is the main star.


    Ninja (2009) and Ninja II (2013)
