Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
What do you get when you cross one of Bruce Lee
‘s classic films, Jackie Chan
‘s funniest martial arts routines, and a touch of 70s blaxploitation cool with one of the funniest and most watched videos to ever appear on YouTube? You get AFRO NINJA: DESTINY, a hilarious, stunt-filled action film inspired by the titular online short that quickly became a part of pop culture upon its initial posting. AFRO NINJA features star/director/producer, Mark Hicks, long-time stuntman/stunt coordinator and winner of three International Stuntman Awards for his work in Rush Hour 2
. Also starring in this outrageous, high-octane chop-socky flick are longtime TV star Marla Gibbs (The Jeffersons
) and Jim Kelly, who, with his easily identifiable afro, was one of the top-martial arts stars of the 70s and appeared in Enter the Dragon
, as well as a host of other martial arts-influenced blaxploitation films including Three the Hard Way
and Black Belt Jones
