The Plot: A young child is stranded in Tonga when his plane crashes and his father is eaten by a fish. He trains in a dojo till he becomes the Tongan Ninja. The Tongan Ninja is dispatched to the island nation of New Zealand in order to help a brother of his master with his floundering Chinese restaurant. But the mysterious Mister Big stands in the eatery’s way as he sends numerous villains such as Knife Man, Gun Man, and the super-sexy Action Fighter who may know a lot about the hero.

Comments: I wanted to like this more. I enjoyed it in bits and pieces, mostly when it was a straightforward kung-fu parody (with dubbed voices, bad fighting, etc). Too much use of cheap green screen (this is the early 2000s), and too much “wackiness” at times. Definitely had it’s moments though, and a very catchy theme song.
