Synopsis


Kickboxer
Jean Claude Van Damme kicks up his heels once again in this action film. Van Damme plays Kurt Sloane, the brother of American kickboxing champion Eric Sloane (Dennis Alexio). Having bested the best in the United States, Eric takes off to Bangkok with little brother Kurt to defeat the kickboxing champion of Thailand. However, while Eric wins the fight, his career is finished for good when his opponent, the malicious Tong Po (Michel Qissi) breaks his spine after the final bell sounds, putting Eric permanently in a wheelchair. Kurt learns the sport of kickboxing himself, so he can get in the ring and teach the Thai champ a lesson. An old man who is a master at kickboxing, instructs Kurt in the brutal art, along with gentle bromides of Zen philosophy and spiritual peace. Kurt finally becomes a pro and lines up a match with Tong Po, but to insure victory, Tong Po's cohorts rape Kurt's girlfriend, kidnap his crippled brother, and even kill his dog. But Kurt is unbowed and is ready for the champ to meet his match. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

    Epic

    I bought this movie after a great friend of JCVD himself Nate P said to purchase it as it was shown to his mother while he was being born. I was amazed at the acting ability of one JCVD. The cinematography rivals Stanley Kubrik and the director of Anaconda. The crucial plot twists along with the great action left me riveted. In the words of the great Nate P the movie truly is epic.

    Van Damme's Best Fight Scene

    Posted
    kevman79

    'Kickboxer' is an awful, awful film that almost isn't worth the filmstock it's printed on. Its only saving grace is the unbelievable physical performance of Jean Claude Van Damme during the final fight scene. Van Damme was really in his prime during this film and looked every bit of it. This dvd transfer is quite good, but it's full-screen only, a step back from the 1999 HBO anamorphic widescreen dvd release.

    I like to joke this is in the holy trinity of top 3 Van Damme movies along with Bloodsport and Time Cop. If you are a fan of this era of action movies this is a worthy add to the collection at home.
