The last movie of Dale Apollo Cook starts with a bloody fight taking place in a ring decorated with barbed wire. In a scene from Blood Ring, Max Rivers gets even with a thug working for the mob by beating the hell out of him and wrapping a necklace of barbed wire around his neck. After this stylish introduction, the second part deals with ensuing adventures of Max who is charged with murder and sentenced to a pleasant stay in a Filipino penitentiary. He is on his own, The American Embassy won't interfere with the legal procedures of local prosecution. The future doesn't look too bright. Max's only hope is his charming lawyer Linda Conroy who firmly believes her client was falsely accused. Unfortunately, Collantes, the warden, decides to arrange a kickbox match involving Max and 2 million dollars. Max isn't enthusiastic about this plan, and refuses to fight for Collantes. Soon, Max learns that the warden's word is the law within the walls of this prison and that Collantes knows how to make an inmate's life a living hell. When Linda informs Max that in this corrupt system, there is no legal way for him to get out of the pen, the only possibility left is to escape. One sunny afternoon, Max manages to leave local stone-pit without even asking the warden's permission, and he and Linda form a lethal duo that shoots down several Collantes' goons during an explosive pursuit. They make their way to the town, but outside an old warehouse they are recaptured. Max Rivers has to fight for his own life and for the life of a damsel in distress once more... Blood Ring 2 has plenty of fights, sweaty prisoners, a foul-mouthed cook wielding a meat-cleaver, explosions and a pretty good theme song playing while the end credits roll. There's no reason why not recommend this movie to the fans of Filipino action flicks.
