This one has more of a plot than the first one, but I still like the first one a bit more. This time the Clint Eastwood character gets reunited with Sandra Locke. Why he takes her back and so quickly is anyone's guess. A mafia type group wants to set up a fight between Eastwood's character and this real tough guy. He accepts, but later declines when they learn that the guy he is going to fight once killed a guy. The mafia people don't like the fact he backs out and tries other ways to persuade him to fight. The biker gang returns as do many of the main characters. In the end, the fight takes to place, but man is it long. To long in fact, the ending fight just drags a bit too much. All in all though it is a pretty funny movie, but there is just something about the first I still like more.
