No Retreat, No Surrender 2: Raging Thunder (1988)

A sequel in name alone, this movie holds no resemblance to the previous film other than the direction of Seasonal Films’ impressive crew. This is a cheap yet spirited film full of hulking big action, and its about as subtle as a slap in the face. In a nutshell, then: geeky martial arts enthusiast Loren Avedon teams up with Max Thayer and marauding fighter Cynthia Rothrock and fly out to Death Mountain, Cambodia; a Soviet stronghold fronted by musclebound brute Matthias Hues, who has kidnapped Patra Wanthivanond, the daughter of a top Chinese government official. Unintentional hilarity ensues. Corey Yuen’s action is decent stuff, as you would expect, and the broad performances all add to the fun.

AKA: Karate Tiger 2; Raging Thunder.
