Casey Bowman, the Westerner who was raised in a Dojo that trains Ninjas in Japan, is now in charge of the Dojo and married to Namiko, the daughter of his teacher, Takeda and is expecting a child. One day Namiko is killed in a gruesome manner and Casey is heartbroken. Nakabura, a former student at the Dojo who now has his own Dojo in Bangkok asks Casey to visit him. Casey decides he needs to get away goes to Bangkok. While there one of Nakabura's students is killed in the same manner that Namiko was killed. That's when Nakabura tells him that he thinks a man who has a vendetta against Takeda and his father might the one who killed them because the manner is his calling card. He tells Casey that he is a drug lord in Myanmar and Casey goes to find him but it won't easy cause he is feared there.

Well directed throughout, solid acting all round, well cheographed fight scenes and stunts. Though Ninja Shadow of a Tear is on a small budget, all of the aforementioned problems are fixed. The movie is completely without shaky cam and quick editing. The plot is very simple and it doesn't try to be anything else other than a great action movie. And finally, the incredible Scott Adkins and the amazing stunt team put in some amazing fights and there are whole assemblage of classic weapons used too which is cool.

Overall a great sequel to the original a must see!

Nothing fancy but for a fighting flick it definitely entertains. The story is fairly weak and predictable to say the least, but having some threadbare plot at least gives poor Scott some rest between the constant action set pieces.

Given the cast and budget, at least its not building up much hope in the end result so you really do get what you pay for. Also considering the amount of titles out there highlighting 'Ninja' in the titles its tough to stand out; 'Shadow of a Tear' is a bit of a lame addition, but I don't want to be petty and mark down based on title!

For Scott Adkins fans, it is one of his best bits of work.

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.
