Full Metal Ninja (1988)

Nomination Year: 1998
SYNOPSIS:  Some American ninja footage shoehorned into a pretty-high-quality Asian martial arts film.

The Asian plot involves a good ninja (Eagle) revenging himself against those people who killed his parents and kidnapped his sister.

The American ninjas assist him in his quest (in a very low-budget splitscreen sort of way) while fighting evil American ninjas along the way.

In all fairness -- this is an entertaining film.

Acting Appropriately Stupid

"I Got 'Im!"
The guy just wiped out your little band of brigands, but spared your life. As he walks away, do you thank him? No, you try to ambush him alone.
