Didn't find this to be very good on the whole. Not bad in terms of an action film but the story was a little obvious and I have seen better martial arts films.

I didn't really like the original Scott Adkins Ninja film that much, but on the stength of his two Undisputed films I gave this one a go. This is a VAST improvement on the first film (which you really don't need to have seen). Scott's acting has improved somewhat and his fight skills continue to amaze. I would put this film on a par with Undisputed 2 & 3 and better than pretty much anything else I've seen him in (The Shepherd, El Gringo, Green Street 3, the Universal Soldier one he did, etc). The plot is straight forward revenge, with a few twists thrown in. More importantly the action happens often and increases in quality as it goes along. The film has the usual cheesiness that you come to expect (and even like) from these sorts of films (especially as a life long Van Damme fan), but I think Scott can, and hopefully will, do even better in the future. But this is still a very solid martial arts film worthy of a purchase any many repeat viewings. If you watch a lot of martial arts films you'll of seen many a triple kick, but Scott does a kind of spinning triple kick that I had to rewind about 3 times it was so good. It just falls short of the likes of Ip Man, The Raid and the original Ong Bak, but not by much. Scott has such a friendly face/demeanor that I can't but help think that he needs to stick to his formidable Uri Boyka character if he's going to make somthing truly awesome.

There are more than a few "Ninja" movies available if you enjoy choreographed fighting, are not too fussy about deep and meaningful storylines and are at ease with dubbed soundtracks or subtitles. But once in a while, a movie comes along that is a cut above the rest. Ninja - Shadow of a Tear is one of those movies. I discovered it by accident when channel surfing but only caught the last half. However that was enough to make me want to see the whole movie.

I was pleased to find this was one of two Ninja movies starring Scott Adkins with Shadow of a Tear being the sequel of "Ninja". Both are well filmed with storylines that are credible and some of the best martial arts action you will see anywhere. Even if you are not a devotee of Asian Cinema, if you like action movies then neither of these movies will disappoint. A word of caution - to get maximum enjoyment, buy both movies and watch them in order.

Ninja 2 blows the original out of the water for fight sequences, an amazing sequel to what was an awesome original ninja movie! simple old fashioned revenge story that takes our hero Scott Adkins on a rampage of revenge!! Adkins is on top form in this, easily the best movie he's been in to date, this really raises the bar for straight to DVD/Blu-ray movies, absolutely amazing fight scenes that are fast and really well thought out, there a whole array of classic weapons used too which is cool, this is an old-school fight movie all the way and the action is plentiful, this has to be the second best action film of the year after Raid 2 of course! Top entertainment a must see for action fans at any cost!!!!
Great picture Blu-ray, there's not much in the way of features though but a short behind the scenes!!!

well after seeing undisputed 2 and 3 i am a massive scott adkins fan.and you wont be disappointed with this film ninja shadow of the tear it is brilliant it has a very good story.adkins was made for this role and it shows with his acting but most of all his fight scenes which i have to say are some of the best ive seen in a long time.not only does he do all his own fight choreography he does nearly all his own stunts.i say nearly because during some of the fight scenes he suffered a serious back injury and was unable to do any fights or stunts for over a week and because of the injury he was stunt doubled in some scenes but not enough to put you off.anybody who likes ninja films this one is for you.not to be missed.
