Trivia

In a 1994 interview in "Masters of Kung Fu" magazine, Kurt McKinney was offered the lead role of the sequels but upon learning that all the films were to be shot in South Africa, he felt it would be too much as he was recently married and he felt he couldn't be away from his wife that long, so he opted not to take the role, which would eventually go to David Bradley.

American Ninja 3-Blood Hunt
18 April 2006 | by retta-88See all my reviews

I don't think any action movies they make are Oscar material. But,for the insomniac in all of us thank god they do make them. If you did watch the movie BLOOD HUNT, retribution was not on the agenda.!!!! Sean saving his master Izumo was the plot of the movie. It just so happens that he became the guinea pig and that the murderer of his father happened to be one of the bad guys. The movie sidekick Dex was utterly the worst even smegal would have been better. More of David's martial arts would have been better I do agree. And considering he was a martial artist who became an actor instead of an actor trying to martial arts like Michael Dudikoff..Hey don't get me wrong I like Micheal too. My favorite movie of his was AVENGING FORCE with our fav sidekick Jackson.
