Editorial Reviews

An ancient Ninja legend is fulfilled when a tiny baby from Los Angeles arrives by sea to a family somewhere in distant Asia. This boy, named Ikki, who has always felt out of place in the strange land, grows up learning amazing acrobatic and dance moves from a mysterious ninja master who forbids him from joining his legendary martial arts school. But when the ninja master is attacked by an American, action movie-star (David Hasselhoff), Ikki suddenly realizes that his destiny is to return to America and avenge his teacher s attack by using his powerful dance skills. In Beverly Hills, Ikki and a beautiful young girl, Kimi, join forces and use their unique training to fight evil and discover what it truly means to be an elite Dancing Ninja!

It's hard not to love a movie that will "hassle the Hoff" with a character name like Anson LaDouche! (Note to David: if you're going to rock the sleeveless kimono look, please wax those monkey-man shoulders!)

A blond, Americanesque baby in a basket washes ashore "Somewhere In Asia" where he is adopted by two loving parents. Dad runs an oriental take-out place--ubiquitous. Mom makes and rents instructional sex tapes--unique. Little blond Ikki grows into an unpopular but well-rounded adolescent, helping Dad with deliveries and dreaming, in anime, of becoming a Dancing Ninja.

Ikki seeks training from a martial artist who looks as Oriental as Emeril Lagasse, and sports a chest tattoo that looks like half of a butterfly, dragging a ribbon. When he is turned away at Sabu's dojo, Ikki finds an imaginary friend in an unplugged dance video game and spends two years learning to dance so well that only about half of the dance sequences require him to be shot from the neck up.

Along the way, Ikki learns to harness his chi, wins over Sabu, makes a few friends, throws a few octopi, gets the girl, finds his real Dad, gets control of his hair gel, and pisses off David Hasselhoff.

Bonus: The Hoff covers B. J. Thomas' 1970 hit "Hooked On A Feeling" over a montage of wardrobe changes that would embarrass a Ken doll. (Dude can sing! He can't wax, or diet, or choose material. But he can sing!)

This is just a fun movie. I suppose one could call it a coming of age story but fun is more appropriate. David Hasselhoff is hilarious as a paranoid past his prime ninja who strives to reclaim fame and power. Lucas Grabeel is excellent as the young "legendary dancing ninja" who must learn to be a man before he can become his destiny and his dancing alone make the film worth watching.

I am not a Hasselhoff fine. I don't like or dislike him. But I know is reputation, so I wasn't expected much at all when I started to watch Dancing Ninja. If anything, I expected a late night B or even C movie.

Not. What. I. Got.

Honestly - I loved this movie. It was hilarious. I have to respect David for playing such a silly character. And Lucas Grabeel did a wonderful job with the comedy - I'm actually going to see if he has other hidden gems.

In an age that needs bathroom jokes to consider itself "comedy" - this was highly refreshing. Ok, there was the naive sex jokes, but they were very lowkey.

It's like Sharknado, except instead of CGI, you get The Hoff!

I mean, you can't overthink the movie. It's a lot of jokes that are funny but don't really make you laugh, and the characters are heartwarming, but not enough for you to care about them. In another dimension it would be Mystery Science Theater's wet dream.

I'm glad I watched it, probably won't watch it again, though I think it might be amusing to watch it with a group of friends in the right mood.

Just one of those movies you watch when you don't really want to pay full attention to it while browsing the web doing research.

A fun and entertaining comedy about a legendary boy who is lost at sea, and grows up somewhere in Asia. David Hasselhoff plays the campy arch villain. Overall the film is worth watching.
