Review

Our Score
The second movie based on the martial arts arcade game, and this has even bigger helpings of action and special effects than the original. Robin Shou is back from the first outing, though Christopher Lambert's role is now taken by James Remar. Evil warlords from the sinister Outworld are bent on dominating Earth again, and the elder gods are powerless to intervene. Only a handful of fearless heroes can save the day with their amazing fighting skills and superhuman abilities. There's only slightly more plot than appeared in the original computer game, and the result is undemanding fun.

Summary

Martial arts heroes are targeted by an evil emperor from a parallel dimension intent on destroying the Earth and remaking it in the image of Hell. Fantasy sequel, based on the video game, starring Robin Shou, Talisa Soto and Brian Thompson.
