Things get off to a cracking start in this when a Chinese guy walks casually over to a jeep full of thugs and after giving them some haughty lip (comprising some truly priceless dialogue!), gives them a fine ass whooping!
So sets the standard for this ostensibly unrelated sequel to the original Robert Clouse directed blaxploitation classic. The awesomely cool Jim Kelly appears here as an ex CIA operative named Lucas who's mission is to retrieve a priceless diamond that has been stolen by an underworld gang.
Yep, as you can probably guess, plenty of kung fu action, prolific nudity and some gems of dialogue inevitably ensue as our ultra cool hero pursues his objective.
Whilst an enjoyable enough affair in its own right, it has to be said that this sadly not a patch on the original film. Nonetheless, Kelly is on good form (although sadly dubbed!) and there's enough action to keep ones attention throughout. Best of all though, there are a plethora of unintentionally hilarious scenes on offer all backed by some super groovy seventies music! How much cooler can you get?! Hell, it's enough to make one yearn to don seventies fashion, grow an afro, take to the streets and administer a major ass kicking to societies vermin!
