James Earl Jones,
The original script by Keith W. Strandberg underwent many changes via rewrites by Roy Horan. Strandberg, who did not approve of the final version or of Horan's credit in the movie, claims his original story focused more on the character development of Scott Wylde. See more »

Corey Yuen spread the cheese on a little too thick...
I decided to rent NO RETREAT NO SURRENDER II due to the man also responsible for Jet Li's fight choreography...however not even Corey Yuen's stylish chop socky could save this....not saying it wasn't fun though. Cross a low budget Rambo rip off with a quality hong kong kung fu film and you've got NRNS 2. Hero Scott Wylde (Loren Avedon) travels to Thailand to meet with his fiance (who is also daughter of a wealthy business man financing anti Soviet forces in Cambodia). The obligatory kidnapping of the fiance takes place forcing Scott to join forces with weapon specialist Mac and pilot/martial artist Terry (Cynthia Rothrock) as they make their way into Cambodia to take on the Soviet forces led by one big Russki known as Yuri (Matthias Hues).
If you can survive the ridiculous dialogue between the three leads(especially former lovers Mac and Terry), outdated one man army shootouts, and Matthias Hues's facial expressions then you may be in for a treat. Although not "Grade A" martial arts sequences, the film does provide entertaining brawls in the opening sequence between kidnappers and Scott, Scott and Mac vs others in an outdoor dining establishment, the three leads vs an army of monks (netting included) and finally the climatic showdown between Scott and a barechested (wouldn't you tear off your shirt if you were buff as hell before a bare knuckled melee?)Yuri. Once again this movie is highly cheesy and lost credibility as a true action movie once you push the VCR play button. Seen as an action parody through the eyes of any martial arts fans, NO RETREAT NO SURRENDER II may still have a chance. What gives this viewing priority over such direct to video turkeys as POINT BLANK and any offering by the PM group is in the fights...imported straight from Hong Kong.
