Where are the guys from "Mystery Science Theater 3000" when you need them?
15 March 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

"American Kickboxer" is supposed to be set in the good old US of A, but something sounded wrong with it when I saw this... let's be honest... torture back in the early 1990s, and indeed it was actually shot in the good old R of SA - that's Republic of South Africa. Which explains why the American accents are indescribably awful, but is still no excuse for the fighting (which is what you're watching movies like this for) being hopeless, and the movie itself being a stain on my memory all round for years. Oh forget it, just DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE...
