| Fred goes to the Philippines
Fred Williamson is back in the sequel to the previous year's Black Cobra, which in itself was a cheap knock-off of the Sylvester Stallone action flick, Cobra (1986). The story this time has Williamson, once again a cop who doesn't play by the rules, who begins the film pursuing a motorbike villain and then blowing him away. He gets shouted at by his angry police chief for this violent detective work and in order to learn the error of his ways…he is sent to the Philippines! A minute after arrival his wallet is stolen, this leads to a terrorist web, somehow.

A cop who doesn't play by the rules, an angry chief, middle eastern terrorists, a disk with things on it, two cops who don't get on then later do get on – this film is essentially a tick list of 80's action movie clichés. The truly random factor is the Philippines, although when you take into account that that country was a haven of low budget film-making between the 60's through to the 80's, it's maybe a little expedient that Fred was sent there. Forget Interpol, Fred was sent to the Philippines for budgetary reasons. Anyway, for what it's worth, I thought this sequel was no worse than the first instalment. It began really quite well but did become progressively more tedious in the second half, in other words the more action they added, the worse it seemed to get. But, overall, it was okay and Fred was admittedly pretty good value.
