Storyline

The cops Tarek Richards (Jalal Merhi) and Linda Masterson (Cynthia Rothrock) in New York on investigating mysterious murders of martial arts masters, whose bodies have wounds similar to scratches tiger. The evidence seems to lead to Chong (Bolo Yeung), a serial killer on the loose who is thus arrested. Chong, however, is escape done by men of his brother, a wealthy crime lord of San Francisco's Chinatown. Cops Richards and Masterson chase him but are captured by two criminals and their followers. The Masterson is locked in a cell, while Richards is forced to participate in a strange martial arts tournament held in the underground city. The four finalists should, with their mystical powers, open a time portal of the Chinese New Year. Written by IvanWong

A weird sequel
6 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

Why weird, you ask? Well, consider these points:

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. (**)
