Two years later Genja is involved in an international terrorism threat involving CIA, Thai special forces, South Thailand islamic insurgents and Japanese Ninjas. Wajip, head of terrorists, is hidding in Bangkok. Genja has to face Claire again. English language is used in the main part of the movie as multinational teams are involved to catch Wajip. Sexy women and samourai fights cannot compensate the weak scenario and montage sequences.

Following Tak Bai incident in South of Thailand, this action film was ordered to cut a scene showing gunmen opening fire into a mosque, or facing a ban.
