Neal Israel's martial arts action comedy Surf Ninjas comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is preferable to the standard full-frame image. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the trailer, an interactive game, and extra features for those with access to a DVD-ROM drive. This is a solid release from New Line.

    Surf Ninjas
    Also known as Surf Warriors, this film is a low-budget, offbeat comedy aimed at the teen audience. Two young surfer dudes from southern California, Johnny (Ernie Reyes, Jr.) and Adam (Nicolas Cowen), have their lives changed when they discover that they are heirs to the crown of Patu San, an obscure South Pacific island nation. The country's throne has been taken over by an incompetent, evil warlord, Colonel Chi (Leslie Nielsen). As the two surfer heroes travel to Patu San to regain the throne, Colonel Chi sends mercenaries to stop them. Johnny and Adam find that they have been given magical powers to help them in their quest -- one of them becomes instantly skilled at kung fu, and the other has psychic powers. Rap music artist Tone Loc plays one of Colonel Chi's henchmen, Lieutenant Spence. Martial arts sequences dominate the fighting scenes, which evoke the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles craze of the era. ~ Michael Betzold, Rovi

      Patu San Resident


      Like an Arnold Shiwortsinhienjer movie, you will walk away with some great qoutes. The martial arts is very entertaining, although I noticed a similarity between Donatelo's (first TMNT movie) fighting and Johnny's fighting. Hmm. They must have trained under the same Sen Sei. Also if you look closely Johnny and his brother don't really look like their related since the younger one looks more caucasion, but Johnny and the Old Master Guide Dude, Zatch, look oddly alike. The one thing I remember saying back in 93, when I was 17, was "Hu was that girl? She's ga-ga!" She could have been a Miss Teen USA or something, she's so pretty! - I know cheese but hey the movie is great, I give it a high five while hanging ten, Dude. I must go wax my board again, now. Go Rob Schneider! You Half Rock!
