Lieutenant Casey Sheppard, US SEAL, (Michael Worth) takes exception to the useless brutality of his chief Frank Ratliffe (Damian Chapa), during a search and destroy mission. Later, back to their army base in Okinawa Island, Japan, it's obvious they are interested in Sensei Matsumura's (George Cheung) twin daughters, the daring Nikki (Karen Kim) and the coy Kamiko (Karen Kim in a double role).

US SEALS 2 is a far cry from its predecessor and delivers a surprisingly witty script, and pays homage to more than a few classic movies. The setting of a Russian island surrounded by methane-gas (precluding the use of gunfire) is reminiscent of "Enter the Dragon" as in the fact that the ex-SEAL turned terrorist (Chapa) surrounds himself with a martial arts army. It is up to his team leader (Worth) and a group of martial artists whom he puts together to stop Ratliffe and his army before they can destroy a major city. Throw in a few plotpoints akin to "The Rock", a little bit of "Broken Arrow", a great and very talented crew and you have a pure bit of enjoyment.
