This unexpected sequel to the camp-cult favoriteRoad Housedelivers much of the same fast-n-furious action as its predecessor, though die-hard fans (and they're out there) might miss the over-the-top dialogue and plot devices that earned the original its reputation. Patrick Swayze, who starred in the firstRoad Housepicture, is nowhere to be found in the sequel--instead, it's Jonathan Schaech as a DEA agent with a connection to Swayze's character who comes to the aid of his uncle (Will Patton in a rare non-villainous role), the owner of a Louisiana bar that's come under siege by a local drug dealer (Jake Busey, who chews scenery with vigor). What follows is a barrage of bar brawls and room-wrecking stunts as Schaech takes his rightful place as the world's toughest bouncer. Suffice it to say that if you own the firstRoad Housemovie (or at least watched it more than once), you'll find the sequel a worthwhile follow-up.--Paul Gaita
Interesting Sequel--just don't buy a copy. This sequel was certainly better than I thought it would be. Will Patton, who plays the brother of Dalton (Pat Swalze) from the original film keeps the sequel together with his excellent acting. The film, however, is just too similiar to the 1st and it kind of loses your interest halfway thru--its so perdictable. The fight scenes are pretty good but any film with Jake Busey in it is just an average B movie---the guy can't act for sure. This film is worth a look--rent it-don't buy it--stick to the original one with better actors.
Super Sequel - Schaech does Dalton's son Justice! I loved the original Roadhouse and did not think a sequel could keep my interest, but was I wrong! Johnathon Schaech really does Patrick Swayze justice! He was very believable as Dalton's son and was awesome in the fight scenes! This sequel was very entertaining and great fight scenes. Johnathon is sexy and has my vote! Summer sizzles with this DVD!Fun "House" needs more Richard Norton. Fans of the original "Road House" may argue the merits of any sequel, but RH 2 is a worthy successor to the Eighties cult favorite. This Son of Swayze chapter moves briskly from New York to Louisiana where Dalton offspring Johnathon Schaech must defend the Black Pelican bar, now his uncle's bayou domain, against takeover by a southern crime syndicate. The ensuing battle sets the stage for a rowdy mix of fist fights and redneck sideshows in keeping with the first RH. There's much to cheer in this welcomed summer release including beautiful locations and heroic charisma from the lead. Two superb actors, Richard Norton as the criminal kingpin and Will Patton as the good uncle, distinguish the project in their supporting roles. Given the talents of these actors, they are not allowed enough screen time. Norton's well tailored Victor Cross is the type of villain that audiences relish. Norton plays him perfectly, as a methodically menacing overlord from Miami. When Norton, a famed martial artist, and Schaech are unleashed against each other, the movie finally delivers an edgy fight scene. More room in this "House" should have been reserved for Norton. If the series has another entry, it will be a smart move to encore Norton and his character as the franchise's bad guy. Victor Cross is a suitable crocodile to keep those Dalton boys busy!
