Continuity mistake: In one of the first scenes with Joe and Curtis reporting to Capt. "wild Bill", Joe and Curtis are just getting ready to walk out of the office. But who's that playing Joe? Certainly not Michael Dudikoff! The next shot Curtis and Joe are comming out of the office and there is Michael Dudikoff again. (00:11:55)
Other mistake: When Joe (The American Ninja) pushes the girl out of the moving truck, one sees the stuntMAN (playing a girl) mis-time the fall and land on a large clump of rock and dirt, after which, before the scene cuts, we see the stuntman curl over in pain. Obviously a very painful fall for the stuntman and a very very funny scene for the viewers.
Continuity mistake: When the Asian Police Chief leaves the office he puts on his hat twice. Once when he stands up and then after the cut again when he´s at the door.
Wild Bill Woodward: I don't like that tiny maggot, I don't like him at all. I mean what is this? Ninjas? Drug pushers? My men being kidnapped and murdered? This is really beginning to get on my tits.
Wild Bill Woodward: Ninja? What the hell are ninja?
Curtis Jackson: They're a secret Japanese society expert in the art of assassination.
Wild Bill Woodward: Tell me, what would Japanese assassins be doing in this part of the world, taking a vacation?
