Best of the Best 2 | 1993 | R | - 1.7.5

Martial arts movie with Eric Roberts and Phillip Rhee as the good guys who avenge a friend's death by taking on the bad guy who killed him.

SEX/NUDITY 1 - Some scantily-clad Las Vegas dancers, and a couple of fairly sedate kisses. Also, plenty of well-developed male torsos.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - There are the usual high-speed punches and acrobatic kicks of martial arts movies, plus a couple of scenes where fighters break their opponent's necks, arms and legs, with great relish. One lengthy gun-fight, during which one character is literary drilled with automatic gun fire, another is stabbed in the neck, and a third one shoots his own foot.

LANGUAGE 5 - Some F-words and various obscene insults.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Revenge, self-preservation, alcoholism.
MESSAGE - You can't always pick your fights; when you are forced to fight though, do it well. Accepting failure gracefully is more important than winning.
CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
