Devils Three aka Pay Or Die (1979)

Lucifer Devlin(Johnny Wilson) is a drug pushing crime boss. His own men kidnap his daughter in order to get in charge of his operations. Devlin is forced to call his arch-enemy Cleopatra Wong (Marrie Lee) to help him to get his daughter back. Devlin promises to turn himself in if she manages to succeed in her mission. Wong needs couple of reliable sidekicks and she hires Tony (Franco Guerro) and 300 pound psychic lady named Rotunda...

This one is even crazier that the first Cleopatra Wong movie. Much more comedy in this one. Some of it seems little bit dated by now.

Guerro is not playing the same character that he played in the first movie. This time his character is this over the top stereotyphical queer. When i first saw this Guerro's character in this movie i have to say that my jaw just dropped. He ain't no One Armed Executioner, i tell you that. Marrie Lee's fighting skills have improved since the first Cleo movie and the fighting scenes are much better in this one.

Not as good as the first Cleopatra Wong movie, but still really entertaining and definitely worth the look. This one was also directed by Bobby A. Suarez.

A bit of an odd question, but how did you manage to come across a full version of this movie? I need it for reviewing purposes and nothing has been coming up for a DVD, and not even when I try searching for downloads.

There is no DVD release of this movie. Best bet is to try to track down "Sybil Danning's Adventure video" version of the film, there are some copies for sale in Amazon, http://www.amazon.com/1979-Mean-Business-Devils-Three/dp/6300165272
