I have to admit that I am a big fan of the first "Cage" movie, mainly for Lou Ferrigno's great performance as the simple-minded Billy Thomas. Billy is a brain-damaged Vietnam vet who turns into a killing machine when forced into deadly cage matches. But even after viewing the original, nothing could have prepared me for the violence and brutality of "Cage II: The Arena of Death".
This is one of those rare sequels that is superior to the original. Lou Ferrigno, somehow even more physically intimidating than he was during his Hulk days, destroys a half dozen opponents in some of the most viscous cage matches you will ever see. I have never seen Lou, or any other actor, look as scary as he does during these fights. The movie is cheap in quality but epic in scope, including everything from Lou's romance with a Chinese whore to a shootout involving the FBI to a helicopter being blown out of the sky by an Asian karate-do master with a rocket launcher. Even Reb Brown is palatable, thanks to a very funny comic role. The movie has a terrible ending that doesn't resolve the movie's major conflict, but that is the only serious flaw in an otherwise highly enjoyable film.
If you can find this in a video store, rent it. Few movies are as enjoyable as this, and the cage matches beat out anything you will find on Ultimate Fighting Championship.
