When Manny is sparring at the beginning of the movie, Frank is heard coaching him by saying to "work the body." Manny starts sending his shots lower and one of those punches lands below the belt. Manny's sparring partner can even be seen noticeably shaken up when he slightly doubles over momentarily after the low blow. See more »
The chase scene in the mountains is in fact merely exterior footage from Peter Hyams' 1990 film 'Narrow Margin' re edited together with interior shots of the actors in the vehicle.
This causes obvious problems as Danny Glover's is not Caucasian like Gene Hackman's stunt driver in 'Narrow Margin.'
The back seat of the vehicle is also unoccupied in 'Narrow Margin' thus not matching the new interior shots. See more »
Not spectacular in any ways but if you like liked the first one then I don't see why you shouldn't at least enjoy this one.
Plotwise I guess it's nothing that's gonna win any awards, fairly similar to the first one but I really enjoy Danny Trejo as Frank Vega.
Usually Trejo gets to play only one-dimensional angry all the time bad asses but Frank Vega has a little more layers to him, of course he's still bad ass but he does have a more sensitive side to him as well as being rather funny from time to time.
And Danny Glover is a nice addition to the franchise, even though there are limitations to what he can do in terms of bad assness his character is funny.
Dante Basco is listed in the credits, but honestly I didn't see him, and I imagine I would have recognized him if I did... But he's listed as 'gangly Asian guy' so maybe he was in the background in some scene. Or his scene were cut out for some reason. Just thought I'd point that out.
Anyways yeah if you liked the first one give it a go, have not seen the third one yet but is looking forward to doing so when possible.
