According to director Terence H. Winkless, the original script had Don Wilson's character training by running up stairs of a temple. When he arrived in the Philippines to begin shooting no temple could be found. A live volcano was nearby so he changed the script to have the character training by running up a live volcano as it would make an interesting replacement for the temple. See more »

Two brothers are kickboxers. Don "The Dragon" Wilson plays one of these brothers Jake, but has retired due to giving up one of his kidneys to his brother. But, that very brother has been killed and Don is looking for vengeance. So, Don flies off to Manila (seems the #1 pass time is robbing) to look for his killer.
To sum this film up in one word it would be bad. The acting is bad, the direction seems to be lifeless and what's the worst is the fighting appears so utterly bad. Which is crazy because there are four kickboxing and karate champions from all over the world in this film including Billy Blanks who I don't think has any lines in this film.
Must say though that the setting of Manila does add some interest to the film. Hard for me to believe this steaming pile was able to generate eight (I think) sequels. The good news is all the ones I have seen so far are better than this one.
