3 Ninjas was a surprising box-office hit with the Saturday matinee family crowd, earning the highest cost-to-profit ratio of that year and instantly mandating this all-too-unnecessary sequel.

Clearly made with an eye on the international market, this movie is set for the most part in Japan, shrewdly adding a female ninja to the three boys, thus broadening the potential demographics.

Immature humor, sexism in trite '90s sequel.

3 Ninjas Kick Back is just as lively and engaging as the 1992 original

New York Times

Instead of exalting physical grace and virtuosity, this film's slapdash action sequences resort repeatedly to the old trick of accelerating the action to the speed of a silent-film chase.

Stephen Hunter
Baltimore Sun

Loud, callow, jejune, infantile, puerile and annoying as hell.

Fantasy is one thing. 3 Ninjas Kick Back is something else entirely: junk food laced with testosterone.

Who was this movie made for? Not for me, that's sure, but I have a hunch younger kids will find it satisfying.

Worse than the first one. These kids are no Spy Kids.
