Stacie Randall plays Harley, a Special Forces agent-turned-investigator, who arrives on the scene of an apparent mob hit to help the local police. In actuality, she's hunting down Francis Lydell, her former C.O. and lover, who shot her in the head when she turned down his offer to become part of the freelance assassination squad he was forming. Ignoring the need for surgery to remove the bullet fragment which still causes her to have occasional bouts of disorientation, she continues her quest to bring down Lydell before he has the chance to kill a Mafia informant being held at the police station.

"Excessive Force II" has a thin revenge plot (which can almost be summed up in the following sentence: "They left her for dead....and now they're going to pay"), but the action (fights, explosions, and a car chase) is not bad, and Stacie Randall is a solid heroine. Not only does she have a stunningly beautiful face and a magnificent body, but she also handles the action like a pro. Some of her fight scenes are thrilling (the choreography is by James Lew and Phillip Tan, both with numerous similar credits on IMDb), and she's not afraid to get down and dirty when the part requires it. In short, those expecting a brilliant action film won't get it here, and the fans of the original (yes, all 3 of them) won't like the fact that this "sequel" is completely unrelated, but fans of action films with strong female leads won't be disappointed.
