Although Dancing Ninja has some amusing moments ultimately it fails to make the grade. I don't think young Lucas Grabeel has a future in martial arts films.
Grabeel is a young man who was washed up from a shipwreck as a toddler and was raised by Asian parents in some unnamed Asian land. Trying to find out his origins he travels to America where people who look like him predominate as he is sure his destiny is there.
Part of his destiny is that he is convinced he is the prophesied Dancing Ninja who was said to be from a foreign land and Occidental.
What laughs there are in this film come from David Hasselhoff who's having a great old time spoofing Steven Segall. Wonder if Hasselhoff will run for governor of some state. Not like some action star hasn't run for governor before.
