Storyline

Bruce Won arrives in America in search of an American G.I. who saved his life in the Korean War. He meets an orphan boy and together they land themselves in a string of outrageous situations. This high-strung farce culminates when a case of mistaken identity leads a gang of thugs to think Bruce is a karate master. They arrange a nationally-televised match which pits our hero against a monstrous brute, and Bruce is beaten to a bloody pulp... Written by <goldenshadows@hotmail.com>

"Sex is very sacred to me, because I always have to pray for it"
23 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is no better or worse than the original. It has some clever lines and witticisms from Johnny Yune, and even when we're NOT laughing, the film gets by with it because of its good-naturedness. But, like the original, it wastes too much time on stupid subplots and fight scenes with secondary characters. And near the finale it makes some serious missteps, including a kickboxing match that's supposed to be a spoof the "Rocky" showdowns but just isn't funny at all, and goes on much longer than it should, too.
