Good fight film .........
21 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fight scenes elevate "Best of the Best 2" to above average territory. Chris Penn is his usual macho self and puts on a good show until he runs into the behemoth, Ralph Moeller (Brakus). Eric Roberts and Phillip Rhee avenge the death of their friend with some spectacular fighting. Special mention must be made of Wayne Newton's smarmy performance as the Coliseum's pompous announcer, someone you'll love to hate. As pure entertainment the film succeeds, because of the enthusiastic performances, and well staged gladiator style battles. Give this one a try if you enjoy martial arts, you will not be disappointed - MERK
