Why Do Commies Hate Tents So Much?

This is one of the excellent features we watched during last night's Crappy Movie Night. NO RETREAT NO SURRENDER II has nothing to do with NO RETREAT NO SURRENDER. It's actually a fast-moving, silly action movie directed by Corey Yuen, who went on to bigger things like THE TRANSPORTER and the awesome SO CLOSE. NRNS II hardly ever stops moving. Though it's cheap and stiffly acted, the action sequences are surprisingly lively for a movie titled NO RETREAT NO SURRENDER II. Star Loren Avedon is a poor actor, but looks like a decent fighter (same goes for Cynthia Rothrock), and he made an even better low-budget martial-arts movie called THE KING OF THE KICKBOXERS (my VHS copy of which went to crap, though I'm supposed to be getting a replacement).
