      A darker and colder take

      If you went to this movie knowing this was a Kickboxer reboot with JCVD, you should buy this. If you didn't know, then, read this review and decide for yourself. I grew up in the 80s watching JCVD, Stallone, Segal, etc. I hate the term reboot. Even the sound makes me cringe to think how Hollywood butchered another classic. In the 80s, we knew what a movie should be, action movies were all about action, martial arts/martial arts, etc. Acting expectations went with the style of the movie. ...which brings us to Kickboxer Vengeance. We have a fighting movie about fighters in a brutal competition. We have an exotic setting that fits the story, with culture everywhere. JCVD delivers a commendable role as Master Durand. He focuses on training in unconventional, but effective ways to develop strength, dexterity, and endurance. He delivers a serious but warm character, which is pleasantly fitting. Bautista delivers a cold, brutal Tong Po. He speaks little, and when he does, you wonder who is next. Rather than teaching, he observes his students brutalizing each other. Training is a competition for survival with any failure leading to death. It is primitive, but fits the perfect mark of an adversary. Bautista executes this flawlessly. So, is the acting good...not really, but you did not come here for the acting. You came here for a little old school JCVD goodness, and while I would have wanted to see a bigger role for our man, you are definitely getting what you wanted.

      Being a huge fan of the original, I was hoping for the best from this. Did it deliver? Sort of. The upside is that Van Damme returns. This time, as the mentor. He's a lot of fun to watch and he's still in great shape. However, a lot of his dialogue is dubbed over by somebody doing a terrible impression. Don't understand why this wasn't fixed before it was released. The fights are good and the movie looks pretty polished for a low budget flick. The lead actor is weak as is St. Pierre but we are here to see fights and they're pretty good. Worth a watch if you're in the mood for some beat em up action.

      Listen, I have every JCVD movie and all 5 of the Kickboxer collection. To say my expectations were high going into this would be an understatement. However, I was blown away. Story is similar but different. There's great humor in it and amazing fight and training sequences. Batista is great as Tong Po. It's so over the top, the whole thing just blew my mind. You have to see the end credits. Just great. Only bad thing is that I guess they didn't want to pay JCVD to come back and do overdubs so you get this weird over dub on him from time to time but it actually makes the movie even better. A+

      Great reboot of the original 1989 classic

      Kickboxer: Vengeance is a reboot of the 1989 classic which stars Jean-Claude Van Damme, who by the way is the only original actor to appear in this revamped film. Vengeance is also Darren Shahlavi's last film role before his fatal heart attack. I love this film because Jean Claude plays the master who teaches Kurt Sloane the art of Muy Thai kickboxing. As a martial arts fan, I would recommend it because of the fight choreography.

      Second Best Kickboxer Movie

      Finally we get a sequel to Kickboxer worth watching. Obviously not as good as the original, but who expected it to be? At least it's enjoyable unlike the original 4 sequels made. JCVD is unfortunately relegated to a minor character, but the lead is adequately big and muscular and Dave Batista is incredible as the new Tong Po. If you like the original or any cheesy dumb 80's/90's tournament fighting movies, check this out.

      This move was good but not great. The original Kick-boxer was a far better story even though this was a remake, the original seemed to have a far better story line The changing of the characters seemed to take away from the movie. The fight scens were good and the acting was ok but like they say there is nothing better than the original.

      Many fighting and other action scenes in this hard to believe storyline, but I did not buy this movie for it's plot. It delivers great fighting scenes and what I think is a very good continuation of the brand. If you like this type of movie , I recommend it.

      It's not as good as the original, but it is a movie worth seeing and has many moments that make reference and homage to the original. Highly recommended for fans of revenge films, martial arts and fans of Jean Claude Van Damme.
