Bloodsport ii the next kumite ron hall as cliff
Bloodsport II: The Next Kumite is the sequel to the 1987 film Bloodsport. This sequel had a limited release before going direct-to-video in 1996 and starred Daniel Bernhardt, who reprised the role in a sequel.
After thief Alex Cardo (Daniel Bernhardt) gets caught and betrayed by his partner in crime John (Philip Tan) while stealing an ancient Jian in Thailand, he soon finds himself imprisoned and beaten. One of the guards, Demon (Ong Soo Han), is particularly upset by Alex's appearance and tortures him whenever he gets the opportunity. Alex finds one friend and mentor in the jailhouse, Master Sun (James Hong), who teaches him a superior fighting style called "Iron Hand". When a "best of the best kumite" is to take place, Demon gets an invitation. Now Master Sun and Alex need to find a way to let Alex take part in the kumite, too.
The final fight of the movie pits Alex and Demon together. At first, and for a long time, Demon has the upper hand in terms of strength and fighting ability. When Alex is down, he takes one last look at Master Sun and uses the "Iron Hand" against his opponent, severely damaging and defeating Demon. Alex is the winner, and as part of deals previously made in the movie, Master Sun is freed from prison, and so is Alex.
Actor Donald Gibb also appeared in the first Bloodsport movie as Ray Jackson. He is the only returning character from the first film to the second film. James Hong and Pat Morita appear in both Bloodsport II and Bloodsport III.
Canadian novelist Kevin Chong had a minor role in this film as Sun's student.
