Hot Shots! Part Deux


When a U.S. rescue team is taken hostage by Saddam Hussein in Iraq, retired Navy veteran Topper Harley (Charlie Sheen) (now a Buddhist monk) is brought back into action. The first movie targeted Top Gun (1986) primarily, the sequel goes after the last two Rambo flicks, complete with a very welcome cameo by a deadly earnest Richard Crenna in more or less the same role as in those films. A very buff Sheen is game as a Rambo clone, and Lloyd Bridges just as amusing this time round; his character has now been elected president. Uneven, but plenty of good gags; the opening with Saddam is hilarious.

1993-U.S. 89 min. Color. Directed by Jim Abrahams. Cast: Charlie Sheen (Topper Harley), Lloyd Bridges (Thomas “Tug” Benson), Valeria Golino (Ramada Hayman), Richard Crenna, Brenda Bakke, Miguel Ferrer… Rowan Atkinson. Cameo: Martin Sheen.
