Storyline

After officer Rob Wolfe is killed trying to stop a gang of ninjas from robbing a jewelery store, his sister, officer Angel Wolfe, vows to avenge his death. Her investigation leads her to the mysterious Dr. Sin Do, who is supposedly in league with an undead wizard named Lee Chuck. The doctor is holding a martial arts tournament on a secret island fortress, so Angel, after rounding up some of her martial-artist friends, enters the tournament in the hopes of finding Sin Do and Lee Chuck and bringing them to justice.

Trivia

The reason the two extras playing police officers don't say any dialogue when they inform Karen that her brother has died is because Jim Wynorski couldn't afford to pay them extra money to say said dialogue. See more »

Jim Wynorski knows
26 April 2005 | by (north dakota) – See all my reviews

Mr. Wynorski knows how to make cheese, but unlike other cheese distributors, he knows how to make it entertaining.

Lost Empire follows a rogue styled police officer, well played by sexy Melanie Vincz, who searches for the killer of her cop brother. Teaming up with Melanie are mystic native Raven de la Croix, and badgirl rough-houser Angela Aames.

The buxom trio fly to an island camp run by the villainous Angus Scrimm. There they fight against the terrorists and get naked at every possible opportunity. I admire Jim for his ability to get women naked in all of his films. And seeing both Angela Aames and Raven de la Croix nude, is a splendor to behold.
