Storyline

Fight everyone and trust no one: it's the code of survival practiced by martial-arts master Casey Bowman after his life of domestic bliss is shattered by a savage act of violence. Vowing revenge, the fearless American stealthily tracks the killer from Osaka to Bangkok to Rangoon with the help of a wise and crafty sensei. His only clues: a series of victims whose necks bear the distinctive mark of strangulation by barbed wire. Fighting to avenge as well as to survive, Casey must sharpen his razor-like responses and take his battle skills to the next level, even using deep meditation to fake his own death. His target: the sinister drug lord Goro, who is flooding the streets with deadly meth cooked at his remote jungle factory. To prepare for his ultimate confrontation, Casey must finally become an invisible warrior worthy of the name Ninja. But just when his prey is cornered, an unexpected twist shows Casey that his battle is only beginning: he truly can trust no one. Written by Nu Image

They Messed With The Wrong Ninja!!
20 December 2013 | by ActionFan-ReviewsSee all my reviews

Move over Steven Seagal, theirs a new Straight to DVD action star and his name is Scott Adkins. This movie is a great modern take on a forgotten genre. The Ninja genre which has produced "Revenge of the ninja" or "American Ninja" "The Octagon" comes this bone crunching bloody, action packed movie which is sure not to disappoint action/martial arts movie fans. The story is simple and like the "Undisputed" DVD franchise you don't need to watch the first to better understand the movie's characters or plot.It has great replay value as well I've watched it numerous times now and if your an action junkie like me, you'll love it. Overall, if your in the mood for a straight forward, action packed B movie and don't want too think to much this movie will surprise you on how good it really is for a straight to DVD.

7/10
