Originally intended to be a direct sequel to the first movie, which launched the career of 'Jean Claude Van Damme'. But Van Damme pulled out feeling the film would not further his career and persuaded co-star Kurt McKinney to do the same. So neither actor showed up for the first day of shooting. The story and characters had to be changed with McKinney's character - Jason Stillwell (a Jeet Kune Do expert taught by the ghost of Bruce Lee) transformed into Scott Wylde, a Tae Kwon Do expert played by Loren Avedon. Matthias Hues was also cast as the new Russian character. Loren Avedon did not follow Jean Claude's example and stayed on after this film fulfilling his three-picture contract. See more »

To me this is one of the best movie of its type. The chief reason being the interesting mixture of characters in this movie, and they're all good.
Of course this movie stars Loren Avedon, and Cynthia Rothrock, both of whom were at their early stages of their career, but they look fresh, and good. Even better than many of their later works, so the director of this movie must have been really good.
Each scenes has attention to details, and they have the clean looks to them that makes it easy on the eyes.
Story is pretty good too, perfectly matched to each of the characters.
This definitely is one of the best movie Loren Avedon, and Cynthia Rothrock has starred in. It's bit juvenile for me now, but when it came out, I was much younger, and it looked perfect to me at the time.
