In a 1994 interview in "Masters of Kung Fu" magazine, Kurt McKinney was offered the lead role of the sequels but upon learning that all the films were to be shot in South Africa, he felt it would be too much as he was recently married and he felt he couldn't be away from his wife that long, so he opted not to take the role, which would eventually go to David Bradley.

The entire plot of the movie relies on the villains kidnapping Sam and injecting him with a virus. They picked Sam due to his combative abilities early in the film. There is no reason to go through all the trouble they went through to get Sam, the tricks with disguising as his master, sending ninjas to attack him, when they could have just stuck upon him unawares, especially when all it took was to shock him with their weapon to paralyze him. They could have snuck upon him when he was sleeping, or at anytime during the fights with this weapon to incapacitate him. This would have been especially useful when his friends had no idea where he was during the initial chase scene at the warehouse. See more »
But I am glad that I can tell you that there will be no more inefficient hijackings, no more bungled kidnappings or mistimed bombings, because you see now terrorism can be scientifically focused to be totally effective!

Oh, god. Insomnia really sucks. So at 3 in the morning this movie comes on on channel 5, of all channels. I thought I'd be in for a treat (name recognition), but no, this movie really sucked.
Yes, this movie uses elements that other movies of this type do... just not very well at all. One element... This movie shows Sean (a boy, then) watch his father get killed in the very beginning of the movie. But no real emotion there. It was a very quick, abrupt scene. But in the next scene he is still a boy, training in some jungle, with a smile on his face! Then it never mentions the loss of his father until the end of the movie, where he is emotionally charged by a flashback of that first scene, which was an even quicker take! UGH. So that whole retribution / power thing was screwed in this movie. Another element is that of a warrior reaching ultimate power after the mind being cleared. Every martial arts movie has this. Fist of the North star (animated) in the beginning, and most recently, the Matrix, at the very end. Those movies used that element WELL. This movie... well, I'll have to say, it was the best part of the film but it still sucked. He used this new power to kick a** but then, all the fight scenes in the movie were badly choreographed anyway. They are slow and weak.
Do not watch this movie! Only if you are awake, and too lazy to move your thumb on the remote control to turn off the TV.
