My Favorite Scott Adkins film

Plot: Ninjitsu master Casey is back and out for revenge when his pregnant wife is murdered.

This is easily my favorite Scott Adkins film to date. This has the best story because it's straight forwarded and simple which is what I like about the action films from back in the day and this brings that back. I've always thought he had charisma whenever he was on screen, He is very likable, and you feel for him in this film which is what you should do for your main character.

The action in this film is some of the best I've seen in years, rivaling the John Wick films even. Director Isaac Florentine knows how to shoot action as demonstrated in his other films, if only Hollywood would actually give this guy a good budget and have some of his films in theaters unlike some directors who don't deserve it.

This is a really good throwback to old school action films that action fans should watch and give it a chance, you won't regret it.

OK fanboys take a chill pill

For starters ignore the glowing reviews.

The fact is that this is the best film from Adkins since Boyka II -- and we all know that at the time he did SHADOW, the Boyka III was still in development -- yet at the end of the day, when the points are tallied, this is still not a very satisfying movie.

And don't take my word for it. Look at the IMDb score and the number of members who voted. Clearly there is slight difference of opinion between the IMDb membership and the "front run" popular reviews saying this is the best thing since sliced bread.

As I said, it is a step in the right direction. Since the last Undisputed (Boyka II) Adkins' agents have treated him like a punching bag, throwing him into all kinds of odd roles and odd films -- even some that (gasp!) are purely dramatic, where the only beating that takes place is when you punch out the friend that recommended it.

Adkins is game and he tries. But David White's script is a mess. Off the top we kill the pretty pregnant wife of Adkins' character. OK, I am all in favor of getting to the point .. but there is no point. The rest of the film rambles like an old streetcar, toying with themes of revenge. family honor, anger management, and ninjitsu. As for the "big reveal" at the end, I will not dignify it by explaining it and neither should you.

Boyka 2016 awaits. And no one needs it more than Adkins himself.

Who needs Jet Li & Jackie Chan when we have Scott Adkins!

If you're going to watch this for the acting, don't get your hopes too high. The acting is mediocre at best, I watched it purely for the fight scenes with being an admirer of the many varied forms of Martial Arts, also being a fan of Scott Adkins. The fight scenes are pure, there are no two ways about it, this film is all about fighting. Of course every movie needs a storyline, although I think the storyline could have been completely baseless and the action scenes would still have kicked major ass.

I did however make one mistake, I watched Ninja 2 before the first movie, which I shall be rectifying tonight and I am super stoked to watch some more intense fighting scenes that make you go "Aw hell no, that SOB definitely won't be getting up after that".

I'm a lover of violence & I've rated this movie 9/10.. If the acting had of been even 5% more realistic it would have got top marks!
