Now, the two men, despite their hatred for each other, must team up and rescue the girl before it's too late. Written by Albert Valentin

Did You Know?


The man who comes out into the street yelling "That's my car!" was Maxin Ross, who is uncredited. He owned the Platinum Club in Manila, the Philippines and several of the girls who worked for the club are extras in the movie. This scene was added to the original script as a thank you to Maxin for being a generous host. See more »


Mike is walking around most of the movie is a blue tank top, sweat pants, revealing white socks and dark sneakers. There's no where for him to hide or place a gun or anything else but he always takes a gun out whenever he needs one. See more »


Mike's Partner: Mike you asshole, don't go solo, you know procedure! Second time!

Best viewed as an unintentional comedy
26 February 2004 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

If I recall the first movie correctly, this sequel has nothing to do with the original AMERICAN KICKBOXER, so you're not missing anything if you skip ahead to this "sequel". Though if you are looking for straight entertainment, you won't be getting anything as well. I guess some of the fight sequences are okay, but otherwise this is an extremely cheap affair , with an uninspired story and filmed mostly in drab locations. Funny thing about those locations - even though this movie takes place in the L.A. area, I swear that most of the movie was filmed outside of the United States. It would certainly explain things like that bogus police car or the police precinct it comes from! Anyway, a good amount of enjoyment still can be derived from watching the movie, if you see it as an unintentional laughfest. The cheapness gets some laughs (check out that cabin near the end of the movie), there is some dopey dialogue, but what's really funny are the incredibly bad performances. Dale "Apollo" Cook gets the bad acting prize here, overacting so much that he simply must be seen to be believed. Maybe he has a futuristic television series in his future!
