When fellow operatives (and childhood friends) Matthew Johnson and Melvin Johnson disappear during an undercover mission in Hong Kong, Cleopatra Jones (Tamara Dobson) travels there to find them. With the help of local detective Mi Ling, Cleopatra discovers that her friends' disappearance has to do with The Dragon Lady, a much-feared blonde "lipstick lesbian" who runs a Macao casino and controls a major chunk of the local drug trade.

Cleopatra's comin' at ya! And in the form of the statuesque and beautiful Tamara Dobson,this queen of the blaxplotation movies is no slouch as she travels to the Orient to battle the evil Dragon Lady Bianca Javin played with relish by Stella Stevens.The first Cleo movie was a martial arts flick by default featuring fight sequences sparingly until the final reel. This pacy and colourful sequel ups the ante with its Asian action and there is much fist and foot play in evidence up until the disappointing and frankly weak tussle between the two feisty ladies at the end.Is this lame or what? This movie is still worth a look however,the fashions have to be seen to be disbelieved as does some of the acting but Dobson is good value as a unique heroine who sadly disappeared after this movie. Check both this and its predecessor out,they are much more fun than "SHAFT."
