His mission is to eliminate his own father - and Caine must call upon all his skill to turn his son from evil.

Worth watching I am going to replace my worn out video with the DVD!
It appears to me to have been cobbled together during a drunken weekend, by a group intent on making a few bucks from past glories.
A weak plot, very little action, a wooden Brandon Lee (shame) and a pointless appearance by Martin Landau, who pops up a couple of times to say his character name and look glaringly at anyone he doesn't approve of plus a very weak ending, make this "spin off" a real drag and a disappointment. The fight sequences look as though they were choreographed by Arlene Philips and the one interesting flashback is used at least twice. Poor.
I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this travesty. Oh, and Bill Lucking appears again as a baddie. Talk about type casting and lack of imagination.
Those who remember and enjoyed the original series with its words of wisdom and easy on the eye fight scenes, should enjoy watching this.
At the end there is a fight scene that, sadly, comes across a little 'cheesy' due to the almost 'superhero' type music that's played every time Cain lifts his arms to show his Shaolin Monk tattoos. Apart from that it's decent viewing, with the added bonus of featuring Brandon Lee.
