One of those cases when the sequel is better than the original.
This movie is a 'must see' for all Olivier Gruner fans. It is his best work to date. (Even better than "Nemesis" in my opinion.) Although I liked the original "Mercenary", "Mercenary II" gave Gruner the opportunity to polish up his "Hawk" May character and make it shine. Robert Townsend played off Gruner like they were an old vaudeville team, introducing us to a whole new facet of the kickboxing champ. With clean photography, decent direction, and a good solid cast, this story went places I could not have predicted. This movie was aptly titled "Thick and Thin".
