Ninja (2009)

Isaac Florentine's violent martial arts action-thriller starring Scott Adkins and Tsuyoshi Ihara. Abandoned as a child in Japan, Casey Bowman was brought up in a martial arts school. As he grew, so did his skills, until they were rivalled only by fellow student Masazuka. Both were seen as a likely successor to their master, until Masazuka was expelled for a potentially lethal attack on Casey over his friendship with the master's daughter Namiko. The years pass, Masazuka becomes an assassin for a shadowy American organisation and his enmity for Casey deepens. And when Masazuka attempts to steal a cherished collection of ancient armour and weapons from his former school, it triggers a brutally gory fight for supremacy between the two men, which plays out on the streets of New York.
