Action and guts, what else?
6 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

This second installment of Violence Jack is probably the best out of the three. The earth has been obliterated by a meteor attack and a group of survivors build a small village called Hope Town. Everything is peaceful until a motorcycle gang 'Hell's Wind' attacks killing and burning everything in sight. Enter Violence Jack who rips a few of them to pieces to get warmed up while the others run scared. Jack is also aided by a girl who survived an attack from them in the past. The film continues to show Jack killing this motorbike gang with some fantastic gratious violence with his Jackknife ending with a gory finale. If you are looking for a film that has more guts and violence than a plot then this is what you should watch!!
