AMERICAN NINJA (1985)

Actor and martial artist Michael Dudikoff would have his breakout screen role as Joe Armstrong in the phenomenally successful American Ninja, reprising his character in two sequels – American Ninja 2: The Confrontation and American Ninja 4: The Annihilation.

The first film in the successful martial arts franchise, American Ninja stars Michael Dudikoff as Joe Armstrong, a one-man ninjitsu fighting machine. Serving in the army to avoid a prison sentence, Joe will find himself battling the deadly ninjas of the Black Star Order, as well as corrupt military leaders in order to bring down an illegal arms sales conspiracy.

Joining in on the adventure is Joe’s comrade-in-arms Curtis Jackson (Steve James, I’m Gonna Git You Sucka) and Patricia Hickock (Judie Aronson, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), the daughter of Joe’s commanding officer Colonel William Hickock (Guich Koock, North Dallas Forty).

American Ninja is directed by Sam Firstenberg (Avenging Force) from a screenplay by Paul De Mielche (based on a story by Gideon Amir and Avi Kleinberger) and produced by Yoram Globus and Menahem Golan.

AMERICAN NINJA 2: THE CONFRONTATION (1987)

Actor Michael Dudikoff reprises his role as the ninja-skilled Joe Armstrong in American Ninja 2: The Confrontation, the sequel to the phenomenally successful American Ninja.

Michael Dudikoff is back in action as Joe Armstrong in American Ninja 2: The Confrontation, the sequel to the highly successful martial arts extravaganza American Ninja.

Joining Joe is Curtis Jackson (a returning Steve James, American Ninja) who, like Joe, is promoted to the Army Rangers and sent on a mission to the Caribbean in search of missing Marines. Quicker than you can say déjà vu, Joe and Curtis are battling scientifically-engineered Super Ninjas in an attempt to bring down a dreaded drug lord known as The Lion (Gary Conway, Once is Not Enough).

American Ninja 2: The Confrontation, directed by Sam Firstenberg (American Ninja) from a screenplay by Gary Conway and James Booth (from a story by Conway based on the characters created by Gideon Amir and Avi Kleinberger), is produced by Yoram Globus and Menahem Golan.
