Three Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain – Filtered
Three young boys: Rocky, Colt and Tum Tum together with their neighbor girl, computer whiz Amanda, are visiting Mega Mountain amusement park when it is invaded by an army of ninjas led by evil Medusa, who wants to take over the park and hold the owners for ransom. Kids and retired TV star Dave Dragon, who made his farewell appearance at the park at the time the ninjas appeared, have to break Medusa’s vicious plans.
This installment of the Three Ninjas brings back all the old players, but with different bodies! The film franchise pumping these movies out stopped caring about quality right around the end of the first one, and has since then made two sequels. I found the story line ugly, but for a 13-year-old with a craving for ninjas and the acute love of amusement parks, this one fits the bill. An evil woman, dressed fully to the brim in leather and net, is ready to extort a once great television hero (played by none other than Hulk Hogan) for massive monetary sums (which police officers can get from the bank… apparently). Lots of hitting and punching, but it’s all in good goofball fun-the same as the first two films in this series. There is some trivial name calling in the film. The Grandpa only makes a cameo this time-how sad.
