Moreover, if we're fortunate enough, we will be able to provided a slate of product and film reviews for this amazing and memorable line-up harkening back to a time where Ninja movies were all the rave. Observe the deets just below!
American Ninja (1985), American Ninja 2: The Confrontation (1987), American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt (1989), American Ninja 4: The Annihilation (1990)

These quintessential low-budget 1980’s action films occupy a special place in the hearts of many people who grew up in the era of VHS. Full of cheesy moments and goofs that endeared them to their audiences, Cannon Films’ American Ninja series still packed enough ninja action to launch a wave of martial arts obsession amongst young people across the US. Olive Films is proud to bring these four campy nostalgic favorites to 80’s kids everywhere on DVD and Blu-ray with new, original bonus features.
The first film teams up Michael Dudikoff and Steve James, a duo with uncanny chemistry and charisma. American Ninja 2: The Confrontation, often considered to be the best film of the series, reunites the two stars and director for even more ninja action. Although Michael Dudikoff was not in American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt, he was replaced by the skilled martial artist David Bradley and aided by returning cast member Steve James. Director Sam Firstenberg also stepped aside to make room for Cedric Sundström for film 3. In American Ninja 4: The Annihilation, Michael Dudikoff returned to the series to save the day with David Bradley.
