When his brother is killed during a Muay Thai tournament, a martial artist heads to Thailand to seek revenge.
Jean-Claude Van Damme made a name for himself in the late 80’s with his star-making role in Bloodsport. The cult classic fight fest launched The Muscles from Brussels as one of the most popular action stars, particularly during his peak in the late 80’s and 90’s where he followed on the coat tails of Sly Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. What followed Bloodsport was a slew of films following a similar path. Van Damme himself did Kickboxer, and then Lionheart (also known as Awol). Essentially the same film again. Likewise Bloodsport and Kickboxer both spawned numerous sequels and innumerable cheap knock-offs, perhaps most notably Roger Corman’s Bloodfist series.
