The three Ninjas return
This is a sequel to the 3 Ninjas. What I liked the most about this film was that the cast is 'exactly' the same just like in the first film: 3 Ninjas. In fact, 3 Ninjas Knuckle Up, was shot alongside 3 Ninjas in the same year, but was not released until much later. It came after 3 Ninjas Kick Back, but the film actually comes before it. 3 Ninjas Knuckle Up is actually a prequel to 3 Ninjas Kick Back. The problem with 3 Ninjas Kick Back is that the cast isn't the same. 3 Ninjas and 3 Ninjas Knuckle Up doesn't have that problem. That's why these two films are better. In 3 Ninjas Knuckle Up, the three ninjas, Rocky, Colt and Tum Tum have yet another challenge along with their grandpa Mori. They have to take on a bad and rich toxic waste dumper in order to save a local Indian tribe, and their new friend called Jo. The three ninjas are tasked to finding a secret disk that could stop everything. The sequel is underrated in my view. It may not be quite as good as the 3 Ninjas, but it's still a good film nonetheless. It's definitely better than the following sequel 3 Ninjas Kick Back. The story is better. It's one of these 'nineties' films you could say. It's great if you're a 'nineties' kid like me. It's a film you can enjoy watching again. It's one of these cool kid films I guess. I like how the film is called. It's called 3 Ninjas Knuckle Up. I think it's such a cool title for a sequel. I like it. I'm surprised with the few number of reviews this film has received on here. I thought there'd be a lot more, but I'm glad I'm able to add on here. I'm sure the 3 Ninjas is popular, especially for those people born in the nineties. I like the 3 Ninjas.
