Michael Dudikoff returns as Joe Armstrong the original "American Ninja" who is the last hope to save the other "American Ninja" Sean Davidson (David Bradley) from an angry Arab who is developing a nuke that can fit in a suit case in this dull yet much improved sequel. American Ninja 4 has a few okay actionscenes and the overall quality is better this time out, but overall the movie is far too wooden to be much fun. Only a few inspired moments emerge to make this one rise above a "Turkey" rating. My only other observation has to deal with Dudikoff himself, he looks very bored and disinterested with the whole thing,while the other actors are just woeful. Strictly by the numbers.
