Worthless Sequel - Watch The First One Again Instead
7 March 2011 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

The titular character wanders about the southwest (and part of Mexico) fighting bandits, protecting a friendly snake-oil salesman, and opposing megalomaniac businessman Klaus Kinski, who has his fingers in all sorts of nefarious enterprises.

Playing a different character, Kinski returns in this disappointing and nearly plot less sequel to The Fighting Fists Of Shanghai Joe. This time around, the main focus seems to be more on lame comedy rather than action, a huge mistake on the part of the producers.

In fact, this lacks anything and everything that made the first film entertaining. The Return Of Shanghai Joe can be viewed as a perfect example of the late declining years of the spaghetti western, with it's run-down, disintegrating sets, loss of overall production value, and embarrassingly awful music, especially the nauseating main title song, which blares obnoxiously every time Joe gets in a scrape.

Star Cheen Lie (as opposed to the original film's star Chen Lee) lacks any charisma whatsoever and isn't even that good of a fighter!
