It's been 25 years since Marshall (Mathew Karedas), known as the Samurai Cop, has quit the force after his wife (Kayden Kross) had been killed in a yakuza execution, to study and practice eastern philosophy. But these days, LA has a yakuza gangwar at its hands, with three clans fighting for superiority, each trying to be even more wicked than the others. So of course it's only a matter of time until Marshall's former partner Washington (Mark Frazer) asks him to rejoin the force - which Marshall turns down of course ... until ninjas attack his super-secret hide-out.

It's not as if Marshall's return would go unnoticed, as he and Washington get into a huge shootout even on their plane to LA, and once in LA, they seem to get into ambush after ambush, pretty much helping them keep trail of their adversaries while their own investigations fail to bring up too many results. But while all that's going on, Marshall also finds new love, a girl who's his killed wife's splitting image (and thus also played by Kayden Kross) ... and who's only eventually revealed to be a yakuza spy trained on him. Eventually, Washington is suspended from the force, and Marshall goes rogue (as he's known to), and he learns of "the complex", a place where he'll have an opportunity to fight all three yakuza clans one on one - which sounds suspiciously like a death trap, but Marshall wouldn't have it any other way ...

 

You may think of the original Samurai Cop whatever you do ... but even if this sequel from a quarter of a century later shares a great many actors with the first one, it's its very own ballgame - and a low budget genre fan's dream, featuring a busload of genre names in bigger and smaller roles, starting with scene stealing Bai Ling as head of one of the clans, Mindy Robinson as her direct adversary, filmmaker Shane Ryan as her choleric Japanese henchman who doesn't look Japanese at all, Joe Estevez as chief of police, Laurene Landon as Washington's sometimes partner, Kristin DeBell as coroner, pornstar Lexi Belle as yakuza hitwoman, legendary bad guy Mel Novak, Dawna Lee Heising, and ... I've probably forgotten a busload, but all these people alone make this fun to watch already, especially since it seems they had great fun on set, and that really translates into the film - and that's really the major achievement of Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance: It's so much fun to watch!!! While the first movie was pretty much standard low budget action fare, this movie, while far from being a blatant spoof, doesn't take itself very seriously, is light-footed in approach, and knows about the ridiculousness of some of its scenes. And while the plot might not be very easy to follow (and it stands to reason if the whole thing even makes perfect sense on repeat viewing), it's really more of a hanger for one over-the-top sequence after the next.

Seriously, it doesn't matter if you liked or hated the original Samurai Cop, if you know any of the names named above, and if you are into genre cinema at all ... it's impossible not to have fun watching this one!
