Hope Marie Carlton,
During the shooting a crew member was asked to perform an acting role which involved a minor stunt. Due to a heavy smoke affect the crew person misjudged a fall and broke his neck. Luckily there was no permanent damage or paralysis. See more »
1) It's called "Tiger Claws II", but the Tiger style is barely used in it.
2) The first movie was a "track down the serial killer" story, this is more of an "underground martial arts tournament" story.
3) Bolo Yeung is now - get this - a good guy! In the film's most laughable line, he is referred to by Jalal Merhi as an "honorable man"! I guess Merhi has gotten over the fact that several innocent people - including his best friend - were killed by Bolo in the first "Tiger Claws".
4) Cynthia Rothrock (who looks very good for 41) has virtually no action scenes until the 50-minute mark, but does get a couple of good fights near the end.
5) There some half-explained sci-fi elements, including time-traveling.
Two more points: the production values are slicker than those of most DTV action sequels, and Evan Lurie, playing one of the bad guys, has a kind of slimy charisma, as opposed to the lead Merhi, who has none at all. (**)
