Official details and artwork:
AMERICAN NINJA COLLECTION – All 4 Blu-ray’s in a Double Wall Slipcase Exclusive to 88 Films Direct Shop customers.
AMERICAN NINJA launched a young Michael Dudikoff (AVENGING FORCE) into cult superstardom and further cemented the legacy of his co-star Steve James (THE EXTERMINATOR) as an action icon in training! Released to blockbuster box office, the story transports viewers to an army base in the Phillipines, where a young US soldier harbours his own martial art secrets – and is forced into a brutal battle against an illicit underground herd of power-hungry mercenaries. Directed by the one man B-movie machine that is Sam Firstenberg (BREAKIN’ 2: ELECTRIC BOGALOO/ CYBORG COP), AMERICAN NINJA also features memorable turns from the beautiful Judie Aronson (WEIRD SCIENCE) and the charismatic Tadashi Yamashita (THE OCTAGON).
In AMERICAN NINJA 2: THE CONFRONTATION (1987), Michael Dudikoff (AVENGING FORCE) and Steve James (THE EXTERMINATOR) return to duty on a Caribbean island – where a series of disappearances point to the presence of a local crime syndicate. Have our muscular twosome finally met their match? Or will the prowess and perfection of Dudikoff’s specialised training overcome his greatest challenge yet? Perhaps the crown jewel of the entire mythology, AMERICAN NINJA 2 hits hard and takes few prisoners!
In AMERICAN NINJA 3: BLOOD HUNT (1989) the bicep-ridden Steve James (THE EXTERMINATOR) is given the task of babysitting a new tough guy in town – former fighting champion David Bradley, who has big shoes to step into! Yet, with more martial arts mayhem than one could possibly shake a samurai sword at, AMERICAN NINJA 3 sustains the brutal comic book excess that this classic collection became famous for.
In series showdown AMERICAN NINJA 4: THE ANNIHILATION (1990), the dream team of Michael Dudikoff (AVENGING FORCE) and David Bradley (AMERICAN NINJA 3) offer a double-bill of butt-kicking brilliance. Heads will roll when our chiselled twosome get together to rid the world of yet another cluster of megalomaniac creeps! A suitably carnage-filled climax to one of action cinema’s most influential undertakings, 88 Films is proud to present the entire AMERICAN NINJA 4 on this fully re-mastered and restored, Blu-ray.
