"3 Ninjas Kick Back" is just as lively and engaging as the 1992 original. Writer Mark Saltzman and director Charles T. Kanganis, neither of which were involved in the earlier film, do a fine job of keeping things happening and moving in an easy yet highly kinetic fashion. Although aimed at children, this smart-looking TriStar release is actually more inventive and better-paced than many a comedy for adults.
