Did You Know?


The film was completed and copyrighted in 1987 and was released theatrically in Germany in January of 1988, however it only had a very limited theatrical release in the USA in 1989 (spanning only 1 week in January of 1989). This is because the German theatrical market was eager for a sequel after the success of the first movie, however no distributor in the USA was interested in a wide theatrical release (which at the time cost approximately 2 million US dollars). Shapiro/Glickenhaus entertainment eventually agreed to release the movie on Video in 1989 (2 years after it was completed), and the limited 1 week theatrical run in January was done to boost the marketability of the film on VHS (the USA video cover of the film highlights and advertises the fact that the film was released theatrically). It is assumed that the USA theatrical market was simply not ready for the Hong Kong style action (wire work etc.) in 1989, until this style was eventually made popular by 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon', 10 years later.

Good action film benefits from Corey Yuen's involvement
14 April 2006 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

Thanks to Corey Yuen's direction, the fight and stunt choreography in "No Reatreat, No Surrender 2" are clearly superior to those in most American low-budget action movies. Yuen knows how to shoot action, and how to take the best from each of his stars. Loren Avedon looks a little goofy at first, but when he gets into action mode you know he means business! Thayer has a solid presence as his partner. Cynthia Rothrock looks cute, is even allowed to show a comic flair, and her fighting is at its sharpest here. And Matthias Hues is a great, overpowering villain. The only downsides to the film are a somewhat meandering plot, and maybe a tendency towards overlength. (**1/2)
