Movie Review – Boyka: Undisputed (2016)

Boyka: Undisputed, 2016.

Directed by Todor Chapkanov.

Starring Scott Adkins, Teodora Duhovnikova, Martyn Ford, Brahim Achabbakhe, Emilien De Falco, Alon Aboutboul, Julian Vergov, and Valentin Ganev.


In the fourth installment of the fighting franchise, Boyka is shooting for the big leagues when an accidental death in the ring makes him question everything he stands for.

As far as odd film franchises go, the Undisputed series is right up there. It’s not so much the popularity they’ve achieved. That itself has been well warranted from the second film onwards. It’s more the genesis of the franchise. That moment where someone decided that 2002’s largely forgotten prison drama starring Ving Rhames and Wesley Snipes (directed by veteran Walter Hill) should be turned into a martial arts mayhem franchise. Moving from prison boxing to mixed martial arts. Somehow it was figured it would prove popular. In the video market at least,

Echoes Of A Ronin: Watch The Impressive Danish Martial Arts Short

Late last year, we got a taste of the Danish martial arts short Echoes of a Ronin, in the form of a gallery of images. Now, the film is finished, and you can watch it in its entirety here, with English subtitles included. Directed by Shaky Gonzalez and starring David Sakurai, Echoes of a Ronin tells a familiar story of greed, revenge and honor, only now with Danish restaurants as a backdrop. It's a stylish effort with some great fight choreography by Tim Man (of Ninja 2 fame), and with a running time of 20 minutes it doesn't even get a chance to outlast its welcome. Check it out below:...

DVD Review – Ninja: Shadow of a Tear (2013)

Ninja: Shadow of a Tear, 2013.

Directed by Isaac Florentine.

Starring Scott Adkins, Kane Kosugi, Mika Hijii, Shun Sagata, Tim Man and Vithaya Pansringarm.


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

British action star Scott Adkins has seen his star gradually rise in the last few years. He’s a franchise star thanks to his turn as Uri Boyka in Undisputed 2 and 3 (a fourth is in the works), as well as jumping aboard another franchise in Universal Solider: Day Of Reckoning, and also getting his face on the big screen in The Expendables 2. These days it’s a tough job launching yourself as an action star, and maintaining a long career, but Adkins is hitting full steam and seems set to emulate some of the success of his older contemporaries.

Ninja: Shadow of a Tear sees Adkins teaming, once again, with fight film specialist,

‘Ninja: Shadow of a Tear’ Review

Stars: Scott Adkins, Mika Hijii, Kane Kosugi, Shun Sugata, Vithaya Pansringarm, Mukesh Bhatt, Tim Man, Jawed El BerniSaichia Wongwirot, Shogo Tanikawa, Futoshi Hashimoto | Written by David N. White | Directed by Isaac Florentine

I’m a huge fan of 2009′s Ninja, as my signed Blu-ray will atest, so it’s safe to say I was super-excited for the UK release of the sequel Ninja: Shadow of a Tear. Whereas the first film saw Scott Adkins titular hero Casey Bowman using his ninjutsu skills on the streets of New York, this film sees Casey return home from some late night shopping to find someone has brutally killed his wife Namiko (Mika Hijii) and their unborn child. Bereft, Casey has only one thing left to live for… revenge.

The only clues to Namiko’s killer are the barbed wire marks left around her neck. So, with the help of his trusted friend Nakabara

Director Shaky Gonzalez and star David Sakurai have teamed up to create something very unusual for their homeland of Denmark: A martial arts drama rooted in the Japanese bushido code.

What's this? A new martial arts themed project? From Denmark? Yes, the Scandinavian country may not be the most obvious source of new fight stars - though Natasha Arthy's 2007 effort Fighter is pretty damn good and star Semra Turan absolutely deserves a return trip to the big screen - and yet it will soon bring us a new short film backed by New Danish Screen titled Echoes of A Ronin.

Sometimes I love my “job,” especially when I get to tell all you folks reading Nerdly about those hidden gems sitting on the shelves of your local supermarket and DVD stores (although are there any of those left these days?). Kill ‘Em All is one such gem.

Essentially Saw meets Mortal Kombat, Kill ‘Em All sees a group of deadly international assassins captured and locked up inside a high-tech bunker known as the Killing Chamber – and the only way to break out of this concrete hell is to duel each other. If they survive this, they will have to confront Snakehead: the lethal, deranged top dog who will stop at nothing to kill them all.
