American ninja 3 blood hunt 1989 obscurus lupa presents from the archives
A powerful terrorist known as "The Cobra" (Marjoe Gortner), has infected Sean Davidson, the American ninja, with a deadly virus as human guinea pigs in his biological warfare experiments. Sean and his partners Curtis Jackson (Steve James) and Dexter (Evan J. Klisser) have no choice but to fight The Cobra and his army of genetically-engineered ninja clones led by the female ninja Chan Lee (Michele B. Chan).
The film, shot in South Africa (not mentioned on the credits), was the first in the American Ninja series to feature a lead actor other than Michael Dudikoff (playing Joe Armstrong in the first two American Ninja movies as well as in American Ninja 4: The Annihilation together with David Bradley's character Sean Davidson); Bradley was cast after Kurt McKinney turned down the offer.
The film was released on the VHS by Cannon Home Video in 1990 and on the DVD in a double feature pack along with American Ninja 2: The Confrontation in 2002 by MGM.
It was received poorly by critics. As of March 2014, the film is rated only 3.2/10 at the Internet Movie Database, with just over 3,000 cast votes.
