Well, after watching the first one, and surprisingly enough, declaring it as one of my favorite films, I decided to lookout for the whole series. Actually, I first came across the VHS of Relentless 2 at ABC Video and I decided to pick it up, since the tape was right in front of my eyes, and only 1 dollar. I didn't get around to watching it until the night after and as assumed, I would enjoy it. Not only did I enjoy it, but it ended up becoming my favorite one in the series. Now onto the movie.
Two years have gone by since the events of Relentless 1. Det. Sam Dietz (From the first movie, once again, played by Leo Rossi), still trying to cope with the events of the first Relentless, has been recruited by a mysterious FBI Agent, Kyle Valsone (Played by Ray Sharkey) to track down an occult serial killer by the name of Gregor (Brilliantly played by Miles O'Keefe from Waxwork and the MST3K favorite, Cave Dwellers), who has been going around the streets of Los Angeles avenging his family's death and killing those responsible. What Dietz does not know is that Valsone has a connection of his own to Gregor.
In my opinion, like someone over at IMDB said, Gregor could probably rip the first movie's killer, Buck, to shreds. The character of Gregor hardly speaks, which makes him even creepier than he seems. There is also a small sub-plot which involves Dietz's wife and son, Carol (Played by Meg Foster from the first film), now estranged from Sam, because of long working hours, and Corey (Played by Brendan Ryan, also from the first film), trying to deal with Sam's current situation and the Dietz Family's future.
Like I had said, Part 2 is my favorite in the Relentless series. I would defintely recommend this to fans of action films, thrillers, to some degree, horror films, fans of Miles O'Keefe and even fans of Sven-Ole Thorsen, who has a small role as the mechanic who is killed by Gregor in the beginning of the film.
EXTRAS: A decent full-frame presentation and trailers for "In The Cut", "Secret Window" & "Panic Room." Funny thing though, the original tagline was "The first killer was unpredictable. This one is unstoppable" but the people over at Sony goofed up the second line and instead wrote "This time, he's unstoppable." Oh well.
