The cops Tarek Richards (Jalal Merhi) and Linda Masterson (Cynthia Rothrock) in New York on investigating mysterious murders of martial arts masters, whose bodies have wounds similar to scratches tiger. The evidence seems to lead to Chong (Bolo Yeung), a serial killer on the loose who is thus arrested. Chong, however, is escape done by men of his brother, a wealthy crime lord of San Francisco's Chinatown. Cops Richards and Masterson chase him but are captured by two criminals and their followers. The Masterson is locked in a cell, while Richards is forced to participate in a strange martial arts tournament held in the underground city. The four finalists should, with their mystical powers, open a time portal of the Chinese New Year. Written by IvanWong

I watched this only because of Bolo Yeung.
15 April 2016 | by swedzinSee all my reviews

The first film was pretty boring and bad. This one is entertaining only by one bit. The old crew is back, leaded by Jalal Merhi, (always hot) Cynthia Rothrock and Bolo Yeung. And it's specifically for martial arts fans and for fans of noted action actors… Two police officers are tracking a criminal named Victor and they think that he is involved with underground martial arts tournament in which Bolo Yeung is also involved. I think that this movie would not be that interesting without Bolo, I think that he is the main purpose, the main vehicle that holds this film. Bolo has this strong presence and appearance and that unmistakable charisma. There is nothing special to talk about, the fight scenes ( for which we are here, mostly) are solid. Actors cannot act worth of crap. The script, score, editing… and everything else is just not that intriguing. The film includes "acting crew" that are mostly athletes. Overall, keep this low budget pearl to yourself, or share it with like-minded people. It's definitively not for everyone.
