Who do you get to take on white supremacists? How about a bunch of renegade stereotypes who look as if they were dreamed up by white supremacists? In Red Scorpion 2, a sequel to the 1989 Dolph Lundgren action epic, a secret government team bonds during highly choreographed martial-arts exercises. When their ex-Commie trainer mentions how much they remind him of the Russkies’ feared Red Scorpion corps, the gang takes a trip down to a tattoo parlor. Then, they’re ready to battle a nattily dressed neo-Nazi (John Savage) who runs around with the Spear of Destiny, trying to set off missiles. All this, I assume, is just an excuse to perpetuate the Scorpion franchise until Lundgren falls on hard times and back in line.
