Michael Dudikoff and Steve James are back as Army Ranger buddies sent to an island where some Marines have disappeared. The reason they’re sent? Witnesses saw guys in black outfits, hoods, and swords carrying them away…more ninjas!
What I Liked
The movie jumps from fight scene to fight scene so the action rarely slows down. And there is a great scene with Steve James using fairly large knives in an epic battle. Overall, most of the secondary fight scenes are much better done than in the first movie.
What I Didn’t Like
The plot is almost non-existent (super soldiers, meh), almost all of the acting is hammy, and the ultimate battle is a letdown compared to a big car chase scene doing a bit of a take-off of the first movie’s opening scene (person being dragged behind a vehicle).
The Bottom Line
A significant step down from the first movie.
