We found out, however, that Chuck Norris' isn't dead. Review after review will tell you this guy is a great performer. His parole officer encourages him to find a job. That's just the truth of the matter, as long as director Corey Yeun Jet Li's The Legend , can deliver some kick-happy fight scenes where men in combat perform exciting displays of martial arts then I'm a happy action fan. .
There are some quite memorable pieces, including the scene where Shaolin men jump around Avedon and Mac and tie them up in their clothes and the fight sequence between Avedon and the huge Russian played by Matthius Hues whom sounds French throughout the whole movie. I was disappointed when I learned Kurt McKinney and especially Van Damme didn't return for this film, but when I saw the new cast I realised it was actually better. Sulin is kidnapped by Viet Cong who are in cahoots with a Soviet group led by Yuri Hues who holds her prisoner awaiting location of her father's whereabouts. She goes down to the basement to pick up a boxc, when she hears something. The characters are straight out of a comic book with fantastic screen presence, dialogue and charisma that makes it impossible to take one's eyes of them. Before you know it, Terry is taken prisoner and, along with Sulin, is to be fed to Yuri's crocodiles yep, Yuri has a muddy, watery hole containing crocodiles unless Scott and Mac can save them from a gruesome death. This sequel has nothing to do with the original film, but is connected that American kickboxers fight Soviet killing machines.
Eventually Mac, Scott and Terry encounter Yuri. It might sound strange, but watch the movie and tell me I'm not right! Corey Yuen is back, Seasonal Films decided to make another film to the series. The martial arts magazine gave the film a rating of one and a half out of five noting that Jean-Claude Van Damme does not have much screen time and that the film was derivative of The Karate Kid. If memory serves correctly, she informs Scott of the present whereabouts of Mr. Hank gets in touch with Carlo first as he was the last person who entered Amelia's life, and later with Daryl's parole officer, who is not very organized and says that Daryl only has to phone him. Amanda meets a guy at a pub while they are celebrating, and the guy approaches her and asks her for her telephone number.
Specifically: Mac is Han Solo, Scott is Luke and Terry is Princess Leia. Same score as the first movie: 7 out of 10! She says that Daryl wanted Amelia's money, but she only wanted to have her own back. Seriously this is in my top 10 worst movies of all time its position would probably be around 4. The film was written by Keith W. I hate to say this but the movie does a poor job of establishing characters that it is hard to be drawn in to the drama or champion those moments where Amelia makes a stand against mail chauvinism as it is done in a too cheesy, heroic manner. Surprisingly, for an American film, there are some well executed and imaginative fight sequences predominantly showcasing the excellent kicking skills of Avedon.
. The bad guys are headed by Matthias Hues, a hulking German actor who looks like he could tear you limb from limb without breaking a sweat. Exhausted from the move, Jason falls asleep at the house, but is suddenly awakened by the soul of Bruce Lee, who appears to Jason and begins to train him. . When I enter a low-budget 80s action film with a choice few Americans involved most of these have co-production companies from different countries working in concert with each other giving the action pictures a decidedly international flavor set in Thailand or Hong Kong, I simply don't ask for much. Don't forget the scene with the machine guns set up in the brae of the 'russian' camp.
Overall this movie was a complete toss fest and should be watched by anyone who loves action movies that are never suppose to have been made. Their mission is to take out a suspected Soviet clandestine operation. Kelly tries to stop Ivan by hitting him with a stool, but the Soviet easily disarms her and grabs her by the hair. They also talk about Daryl, Amelia's ex-husband who is to spend a further two years at jail. However Van Damme pulled out feeling the film would not have furthered his career while persuading co-star Kurt McKinney to do the same. Upon release, the film received negative reviews, focusing on the story which some reviewers found too similar to the 1984 film.
By now I forgot the plot mainly because the acting and hammy action sequences were really bad. If you want to watch a good film, don't watch this - its not worth it. Scott, for the coup de grace, shoots the gas tank which causes the jeep to explode! Really, that's all there is to the plot line: it's a lightweight movie with plenty of comedy in the scripting and plenty of action to keep things moving along. Who goes to a movie like this and expect a cast full of thespians. During his quest, he meets the spunky Terry Rothrock in a boxing gym. Wylde: the good news is, while soaking up all the Bangkok nightlife, he finds his buddy Jarvis in a club facing off against an opponent in wrist-wrasslin', naturally. Cynthia Rothtock is phenomenal in her role.
We found the interplay between Scott, Mac and Terry to be eerily similar to Star Wars. The final reel goes overboard on the pyrotechnics, with all sorts of things blowing up spectacularly for no apparent reason, but the main action fun comes from the fighting. . Is it the new man in her life, her now paroled ex who inspired the blog, or a deranged fan? Of course this movie stars Loren Avedon, and Cynthia Rothrock, both of whom were at their early stages of their career, but they look fresh, and good. The acting is zero, don't expect any believable emotions or anger, however the characters their skills, their knowledge are somewhat better than usual.
