Why isn't there a sequel featuring the same actors?

 

Screenwriter Keith W. Strandberg "tailored" his script to Kurt McKinney and Jean-Claude van Damme and eventually both signed a contract. Nonetheless, neither McKinney nor van Damme turned up on the first shooting day! One figured out later that van Damme had taken over the leading role in Bloodsport whereas McKinney had got into arguments with the producers.

The posters had already been ordered at LeeDaiDer.de!

 

 

 

 

Where can I get NRNS on dvd?

 

Well, the movie has not been released in the States yet, but there plenty of versions elsewhere in the world, e.g. Australia, Skandinavia, UK and Germany. Hardcore fans shouldn't feel turned off by high shipping costs!

Is there a OST with the songs from the European version?

 

No, my own intensive researches have made it clear: There is no "usable" meaning European OST of No Retreat No Surrender.

 

 

 

 

Leastwise, does a stereo version of "Hold On To The Vision" exist?

 

No, singer Kevin Chalfant assures repeatedly that there is not. If he doesn't know, who else !?!

 

 

 

 

Why does Scott hate Bruce Lee if he does karate himself?

 

In contrast to Jason he knows that karate has nothing to do with Bruce Lee.

 

 

 

 

"Stick with me, kids, and never go hungry!" - Why?

 

(1) Scott has got a hell lot of money and therefore actracts to other, or

(2) Scott's father is the owner of the burger joint and gets all he wants for free.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What has Scott got on mind when he grabs R.J. by his feet?

 

This is the role model of putting someone down in a big way! R.J. could have got killed if Jason hadn't intervened.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who peed into the pool?

 

After quite some time of considering the case, I have come to the conclusion that it wast Kelly's flat breasted friend with the strange unknown object covering her head.

Must have been her!

 

 

 

 

Wait, where does Jason know Kelly from? And that kissing?

 

Jason got to know Kelly last summer that she had spent at her grandma's in Los Angeles. Jason's fashionable appearance convinced Kelly into kissing the punk right away, no matter they had been in relationship before or not.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How can R.J. be that fast from under to shower to the garden fence?

 

He's into this shower cap on a regular basis. Ergo, he wasn't having a shower when Jason arrived!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why doesn't Sensei Lee look like Sensei Lee?

 

Come on, that ain't true. It's him!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where do the sandbags come from?

 

Lee Dai Ger took them with him from kingdom-come.

 

 

 

 

Why does Jason wear these cowboy boots all the time?

 

Jason simply knows about fashion. On certain occasions (Kelly's party, disco visit) he understandably shows off.

Phat!

Why is R.J. doubled all the time?

 

R.J.'s double gets into action whenever his alter ego is involved in any sort of breakdance action. Hence, the only question acceptable should be: Why didn't the double take over the whole part?

 

 

 

 

Why does R.J. look like a ringmaster?

 

It's just THE outfit in Seatlle's redneck discos.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How can the Seattle Sidekicks accept a fight where there is nothing to gain?

 

The karate mafia is pretty cruel. The only way to get rid of them is this one fight. Ian is convinced that he dealing with men of honor that certainly will stick to agreements made before.

 

 

 

 

Why do the Maulers not complain when being erased tout coup from the lineup by Ivan?

 

It's pure angst because the awesome machine of annihilation could get near them as well.

Why does Jason wear a tracksuit when arriving to the fight?

 

He must have known that the Sidekicks were without a chance and that he was going to help them out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why does Ivan lose against the punk?

 

Punk Jason got rest throughout all the previous fights whereas Ivan already had to beat three opponents. He was physically disadvantaged when the son got into the ring.

 

 

 

 

 

 

L.A. karate IS impressive, isn't it?

 

Still not good! Everything Jason knows is Seattle-esque. His father is a loser anyway.
