Film Review

No Retreat, No Surrender II

Year: 1989

Directed by: Corey Yuen

Cynthia Rothrock: guest stars as a martial arts instructor who helps the heroes and dies a glorious death.

Other Players: Loreen Avedon, Max Thayer

Plot Synopsis: An American attempts to rescue his Thai fiancee, who is being held by Russian and Vietnamese troops in Southeast Asia.

General Impressions: Plays fast and loose with continuity, lots of humour (I'm not sure if it's intentional or not--weapons crates marked "Made in U.S.S.R.", for example), okay fight scenes, way over the top at the end. More to the point, CR is cute, spunky, and fights bravely before being killed in order to provide revenge motivation for the heroes.

Watch It?: Maybe. If you're in the mood for something fairly ridiculous.
