Advice on Inherited Installation

Hello,

I just purchased a house which had all three bathrooms recently redone (~6 years). The second floor bathroom, which is an all-tile shower, had a tile fall out. A friend said that the tile seemed to be installed using bucket mastic. I had the original contractor come by and take a look. He said he would never use bucket mastic in a shower and he pointed out some hairline cracks in the tiles that he said were not there on installation. He advised that the plaster walls were moving some and this is leading to cracks in the tiles and the fall out. He recommended we not use the shower until the tile gets ripped out and redone.

I'm looking for opinions on the validaty of the contractors claims. Definitely looking for a second opinion as well from a nearby licensed contractor, but looking for opinions on this problem to gain more information. Any help is appreciated.
