A commando of retired US SEALs must invade an island in North Japan from where a rogue ex-SEAL menaces to launch a nuclear strike against the US. Because of a leak of natural gas, fighting is restricted to blade weapons.
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). Frank goes on a date with Nikki and sometime later Casey finds her corpse, and sees Frank in the process of hiding evidence of a murder-for-rape crime. Three years later, Frank Ratliffe is a criminal operating from a former Russian island, who has turned against his own SEAL corps and about to kidnap Dr. Jane Burrows (Kate Connor), a physicist scientist, to force her help him getting two nuclear bombs ready for a strike against the United States. Backed by an army of dozens of killers, plus Sophia (Sophia Crawford), a sexy expert with the saber, and Borris (Velizar Binev) the scarf strangler, he ... Written by
US Seals II stars Michael Worth as as a commando who uses his martial arts skills to take on a former marine/martial arts expert(Chapa) who has taken a scientist hostage (Notice how the scientist is a sexy chick who looks more like a kindergarten teacher than a scientist, with big boobs, no less) so that she can help him turn a missile nuclear however the catch is that there is so much flammable air that one cannot light a cigarette let alone fire a gun (Or for that matter a nuclear missile) so Worth gathers a gang of martial artists as well as Marhall Teague (The film's best character) who is armed with acid paintball guns (Thinking about this movie logically will get you nowhere) and to which the seals take on the terrorists with martial arts battles. I actually probably wouldn't have reviewed this had I not clicked on "Michael Worth" and had seen that he was in this, which I had subsequently caught on HBO (Or Showtime, or something...) I remember enjoying the action sequences as well as the stupidity here. Indeed U.S Seals II is so silly it makes Issac Florentine's other efforts i've seen (Desert Kickboxer, Cold Harvest and Bridge Of Dragons) seem like works of supreme intelligence. The movie is full of plot holes, it is reported that you can't shoot guns but this doesn't stop our villain from smoking or launching a nuke. Worst of all is when the film tries to concern itself with characters, who don't register anything towards reality. (Teague's character aside) still it has lots of action and it has tons of carnage, so in other words this is perfect for the action fan looking for a guilty pleasure but little else. I haven't seen any of the other U.S Seals movies but despite enjoying this goofy entry, I still doubt i'll be seeking these out.
