Along with Interpol agent Greg Duncan, Malone travels the streets of Manila, tracking down leads. Criminals always seem to know where Duncan and Malone will be, which leads them to suspect a traitor in their midst. Written by

The third time is not the charm for this series, though it wasn't the charm with either part one or part two. In this entry, the production values take a couple of steps back, though they are not as dire as those in the first film. (But there are at least some colorful jungle locations in the beginning and end.) There is an unintentionally hilarious song ("The Power Of Love" - not the Huey Lewis version) played twice. There is also some nudity, which none of the first two movies had. But despite things like that, the movie still ends up being pretty dull. Williamson, like the first two movies, seems to be on autopilot, and the action (mostly punch-ups) gets tired pretty quick. The climatic action scene (which takes a long time to build up to) is the best action scene of any in the series, but that does not mean it's good. It's too little, too late.
Well, I've seen all three (official) entries of this series. Now hopefully I can now get to movies that might be GOOD.
