Over two decades before Kick Ass, the 7 Lucky Ninja Kids – decked out in 1980s street fashion, were trading punches with adult villains to a musical soundtrack composed of almost certainly unlicensed western pop songs. The result is a badly dubbed and unintentionally hilarious movie that was inappropriately marketed to children, despite the violence, mild language and sexual innuendo. Barely a B-movie, 7 Lucky Kids has little-to-no plot and is perhaps most entertaining during the fighting musical montage which introduces the kids before they attempt to return the lost diamond and do battle with an inept gang of mobsters (Klaus Ming April 2010).
