This sequel to the SILK (1986), which introduced tougher-than-leather Honolulu cop Jenny "Silk" Sleighton, ended the low-budget series.
Sergeant Chris Meadows (Bon Vibar), the hot-headed Silk's (Playmate of the year and soft core regular Monique Gabrielle, taking over from Cec Verrell) partner, gets a tip from his old friend, art collector Kashi Hashimura (Joe Mari Avellana). The valuable four scrolls of the temple of immortality, which were destined for the Gish Museum of Oriental Art in Kona, were stolen after they arrived at Honolulu airport. Meadows tries to investigate on his own and gets the bejabbers kicked out of him by thugs working for wealthy Hancock Gish (Jan Merlin), who had the scrolls stolen and plans to exhibit fakes in their stead. Silk takes over and gets her hands on one of the scrolls, but Meadows is kidnapped by Gish's thugs, who intend to swap Silk's partner for the missing artwork. The fact that Silk has been suspended for her hot-dogging doesn't stop her from agreeing to a meet at the botanical garden. Unfortunately, her boss gets wind of what she's doing and sends a team to back her up. They turn the exchange into a bloodbath and Meadows is killed. His dying request: That Silk go to Kona and deliver the scroll to Kashi. Of course, Gish is in Kona, and Silk doesn't like to see bad guys get away with doing bad things…
Any chance this typically cheap action movie from Filipino-born producer and director Cirio Santiago had of being entertaining went out the door when Gabrielle was cast. Her talents don't extend to playing even a remotely convincing cop, and the film features surprisingly little of what she does do well, which is look great with her clothes off.
