American Ninja (Special Edition)

Directed by Sam Firstenberg

Release: 1985
Runtime: 95
Country: U.S.
Language: English

Prepare for electrifying martial arts magic and breathtaking action galore as a young American becomes one of the greatest masters of Ninjitsu in American Ninja. Stationed in the Philippines, 18-year-old U.S. Army private Joe Armstrong (Michael Dudikoff, Avenging Force) is escorting a supply convoy when it is ambushed by rebels—one of whom he recognizes as a Black Ninja warrior. Instinctively, Joe defends himself using the esoteric martial art of Ninjitsu—an ability that puts him under suspicion by his commander and fellow soldiers (including Steve James, I’m Gonna Git You Sucka). Alone in his fight against corruption, the boy finally discovers the secret of his mysterious past—a secret that pits him against the evil Black Star Ninja (Tadashi Yamashita, The Octagon) in the ultimate martial arts battle. Directed by Sam Firstenberg (Revenge of the Ninja) for legendary producers Golan and Globus (Enter the Ninja), American Ninja is entertainment as swift and sure as the flashing blade of a samurai’s sword!
