Lacked the Passion and Raw Energy of Its Predecessor
7 January 2019 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

Having left New York City with a large sum of money gained by his sale of illegal drugs, "Youngblood Priest" (Ron O'Neil) has eventually settled down in Rome with his girlfriend "Georgia" (Sheila Frazier). Yet even though he spends his time driving an expensive Lamborghini and playing poker with some acquaintences, Priest is still not content with life. This changes when he meets a man named "Dr. Lamine Sonko" (Roscoe Lee Browne) who tells him that he is trying to wage a revolution in his West African nation of Umbria and needs Priest's help in laundering diamonds into money to pay for weapons. Although he has seen poverty all of his life, Priest refuses to help and this leaves Dr. Sonko extremely angry with him. And with that Priest feels even more empty inside. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this sequel wasn't nearly as good as the original in that it lacked the passion and raw energy of its predecessor. Even so it wasn't terribly bad overall and for that reason I have rated it accordingly. Average.
