I will have to admit it, I loved this movie. For reasons that may seem very obscure or not even noticeable to the average young gun generation X, Y or G3n wuteva who grew up with a severe case of fake martial artist staring in shady Hollywood action films with way to big of a budget for their quality to include shaky cam, ghosting cam, CGI explosions and CGI abs. The true art in this film is incomprehensible to that group whom grew up on such films this past decade that really didn't have soul or spirit to say the least. This film had it all, if you are able to focus and see it and feel it. Direct to DVD is the future and its the cure for these poor souls.

They cant comprehend whats happening on the screen and react to it differently than someone who has seen what great cinema can entail and what dimensions and atmosphere they can project onto the screen with visuals and sound as an cinematic combo breaker.

Sure NINJA II does have a pretty simple story that the bulk of tough guy reviewers are spewing about all over the web. But what good is a story if you can't see what the hell is happening on screen and its all over the place taking short cuts. As I mentioned before this movie does have a simple story; though not in the sense of a 6th grade reading level story book, but sense that it didn't try to be something it could not be and making a complete ass of itself like most movies do nowadays on the silver screen, which is why Direct to DVD seems to be the future of good cinema. The type of book this would be comparable to in sense of a story is a short 200 page top notch western novel which includes a short series of vivid scenes, all intersecting up to the real final point.

Actually I would had given the movie 3 stars, because of the acting, but the fighting scene was great, especially toward the end, so I gave the movie a 4

The movie had great hand to hand combat but that's about all it had. Thankfully I wasn't watching it for the acting...lol.

First off I've been watching Scott Adkins' career since Undisputed II (great fight movie). I can say this he is one of the most exciting martial artists in movies today. If not THE most exciting. For a guy at 5'11" he moves super fast and is very acrobatic.

This particular movie is good. It has a decent simple story line with a bit of a twist at the end. At times it was a bit campy like the martial arts movies of old, but thats to be expected in these films. The fight sequences are very good. It is not over played with explosions or pyrotechnics. Punches, kicks, and throws are executed well. No gaps in the camera angles. Adkins shows off his signature moves several times in this movie which are always fun to see.

All in all a good viewing experience for fans of martial arts movies and of Adkins.

Scott Adkins tears it up in another straight-to-video release that has him in the lead as a bonafide ninja. Yep, and the English actor also speaks fluent Japanese throughout too. After an assassin kills his wife, Casey Bowman (Scott Adkins) goes full Braveheart and sets off to hunt down her murderer. Along the way, he somehow manages to stumble upon a secret Japanese burial site deep in the wilderness. He digs up a random coffin, and whaddaya know? He unearths a full ninja set consisting of stealth garb, katanas, stars, and poison darts. Casey, being a black belt in Ninjutsu, suits up like its another day at the office and resumes his quest.

Ninja 2: Shadow of a Tear shines when the actors stop talking and knuckle up. As always, Scott Adkins brings some crazy fight choreography that is second to none in today's genre films. The movie struggles when it draws from Scott's acting ability, or lack of, to generate a plausible backstory. Scott is a very one-dimensional and wooden action-movie star, and that's pretty bad considering the type of B-list actors that crank out similar films one after another. However, if you like realistic fight scenes with no wires or camera tricks, you will be hard pressed to find another martial artist that consistently brings his skills to the screen again and again. 4 stars for the fights.

The fight scenes in this movie are amazing - 5 stars for the fight scenes, but I disliked the story greatly and I disliked the movie just because I think that it was stupid that all those people died and they weren't even the one that killed the girl. In some ways it really sucked. If you want to see a movie with great fight scenes, then watch it for that and ignore the stupid story. Which is what it is - stupid. it sucked. But the fight scenes were fantastic. I think movies like this send the wrong message that if someone does you wrong that revenge is the answer - but was it the answer for him? he killed all those people - did it bring her back? did all the violence do any good ? she's still dead -right? So, I give this 3 stars - 5 for the fight scenes and 1 for the story - which makes it end up a 3. One thing - this guy's martial arts skills are incredible and I wish I could do what he did in this movie. fantastic.
