With karate expert David Bradley replacing Michael Dudikoff in the leading role, series continues with a rehash of the enjoyable second entry, as top international martial arts combatants gather on a tropical isle for a tournament.

As before, the island plays host to an evil entrepreneur (Marjoe Gortner), who is on the verge of perfecting a virus that will become the ultimate terrorist weapon. Ridiculously, he is looking for the perfect specimen on whom to test the germ, and finds him in the hunky Bradley, who is prepared for a ‘designer death.’

For his part, Bradley is determined to rescue his Japanese master, whom he believes has been kidnapped by the baddies. This provokes him and his fearless partners into an assault on the fortress-like laboratory.

Even for this level of by-the-numbers action filmmaking, Cedric Sundstrom’s script is incredibly lame, and his staging of chopsocky violence is little better. Cheap-looking pic was produced in South Africa.
