Arsenal

Review Robert Scandal Jackson, Jr., is an ex-Navy SEAL who went A.W.O.L. after refusing to blow up an enemy command center housing civilians. He disappeared to the wilderness of Alaska, changing his name and appearance, and became a teacher in a small Inuit community. But a part of his past caught up to him and he was shot in the face, his comatose body left for dead. He awoke in the hospital three weeks later and found himself with a new face and a new chance at life, thanks to a woman named Danielle LaPoint.
Contract to Kill

Review In the nightmarish last days of the Third Reich, a psychotic Nazi scientist (Robert Vaughn, Bullitt) escapes to the impenetrable jungles of the Amazon. Years later, a mysterious incurable disease breaks out among the natives and adventurer John Hamilton (Michael Dudikoff, Avenging Force) is hired to lead investigators on a search for the cause. Braving bloodthirsty rives pirates, hostile native tribes and headhunting cannibals, Hamilton, guides a group of explorers up the deadly Rio del Morte to the fabulous lost Inca city. Action specialist Steve Carver (Lone Wolf McQuade) directs this top-notch action-adventure based on an Alistair MacLean (Breakheart Pass) novel. The stellar cast includes Donald Pleasence (Wake in Fright), Herbert Lom (Golden Salamander) and L.Q. Jones (The Wild Bunch).

Kill Ratio

Review All four films in a special collector's edition release. AMERICAN NINJA: Pvt. Joe Armstrong (Michael Dudikoff) chooses to enlist in the US army rather than go to prison and finds himself fighting off ninjas on a base in the Philippines. When he saves Patricia (Judie Aronson), the base colonel's daughter, from kidnapping but loses everyone else in the platoon, Joe's popularity with his colleagues drops precipitously and he becomes the target of revenge of the lead ninja (Tadashi Yamashita). AMERICAN NINJA 2 THE CONFRONTATION On a remote Caribbean island, Army Ranger Joe Armstrong investigates the disappearance of several marines, which leads him to The Lion, a super-criminal who has kidnapped a local scientist and mass-produced an army of mutant Ninja warriors. AMERICAN NINJA 3 BLOOD HUNT 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). AMERICAN NINJA 4 THE ANNIHILATION CIA agent Sean Davidson and his sidekick Carl are sent into the stronghold of sadistic British ex-soldier Mulgrew to rescue some Delta Force commandoes who have been captured and tortured. When Sean, Carl and pretty doctor Sarah run into some problems, Peace Corps vet Joe Armstrong is lured out of retirement to stop Mulgrew's plan to explode a nuclear device in New York City.
Interrogation

Review "The first film in the successful martial arts franchise, American Ninja stars Michael Dudikoff as Joe Armstrong, a one-man ninjitsu fighting machine. Serving in the army to avoid a prison sentence, Joe will find himself battling the deadly ninjas of the Black Star Order, as well as corrupt military leaders in order to bring down an illegal arms sales conspiracy.

Joining in on the adventure is Joe s comrade-in-arms Curtis Jackson (Steve James, I m Gonna Git You Sucka) and Patricia Hickock (Judie Aronson, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), the daughter of Joe s commanding officer Colonel William Hickock (Guich Koock, North Dallas Forty).

American Ninja is directed by Sam Firstenberg (Avenging Force) from a screenplay by Paul De Mielche (based on a story by Gideon Amir and Avi Kleinberger) and produced by Yoram Globus and Menahem Golan."
Hitman's Run

Review Lots of people stand between where Merrill Ross is and where he wants to go. A Death Squad blows an oil depot out from under him, agents shadow him like a poison cloud, soldiers rain a steel hail of bullets on him. Ross is the man in the middle of a savage international tug-of-war. His adversaries have taken their best shot. Now he's taking his. Michael Dudikoff (American Ninja, The Human Shield) plays antiterrorist operative Ross in this explosive saga of a plot to take over oil-rich Qumir. Behind the attempt could be the CIA, QLI, QSS or any number of groups known only by alphabetical shorthand and sudden force. But it's Ross who teaches them the ABCs of action!
