When they finally realised that Van Damme wasn't going to speak any clearer they searched for his replacement to fulfill the ever growing market for American produced Karate movies; Jeff Speakman was one of the favourites. This was the long awaited second feature from Mr Speakman and it's not as slick as his excellent debut The Perfect Weapon. A gang war is being instigated by some paramilitary types who want a gang war so they can profit from arms sales...yep it's that level of stupid. Speakman turns up to ruin their day. There's a sub plot about a missing kid and Speakman has some poorly acted scenes with a disinterested leading lady but when it's time for the cop socky, Speakman's your man. Christopher Neame hams it up as the villain and the two have a decent fight at the end with Neame quoting Shakespear and Speakman returning with a line from Terminator 2.
I was hoping for a whole lot more from this movie but i guess once you seen The Perfect Weapon anything of Jeff Speakman or even alot of other action movies is hard to beat. I got this primarily because its Uncut and not out on dvd for the uk (or is it? not seen it anywhere) I transfered it to dvd myself and very happy with the quality of the videotape i was sent because ive delt with alot in the past that just flicker. Its not to bad of a movie, action is ok but didnt find the story line interesting, could of been a whole lot better with more fight scenes. Good for keeping in ones rare collection.
