Martial Law II: Undercover (1991)

aka Karate Cop: Martial Law 2

Hardworking cop Sean Thompson (Jeff Wincott) gets promoted to Detective and soon after does some detecting that puts him in movie-danger.
It has more action but also more filler, a peculiar state of imbalance that makes it even less entertaining than the first Martial Law (1990) movie. Clichés are used frequently; they're forgivable because it's that kind of film. But the hero's man-coat shoulder pads are altogether unpardonable.
A bitch-fight (that's over seconds after it's begun!), a hulking bodyguard, and heroes that take a shit-ton of punches and kicks to the face but don't bleed are what you're in for should you progress beyond the opening credits.
