James Earl Jones,
Kahn is a heavy weight kick-box champion, who often kills his opponents in front of the running camera, to sell it on video tape. Jake had to witness once how his brother was killed by him, and now has come for revenge. But first he has to improve his fighting skills; he asks Phang, the only person in the whole world who ever had Khan down on his back, to train him until he is a match for him. Written by

According to Keith W. Strandberg, the murderously anti-American Khan is, in fact, half-American. Khan's untold back-story includes a father who was an American serviceman and abandoned Khan and his Thai mother when Khan was young, sparking his feelings of hatred towards Americans. See more »
Billy Blank's character Khan was written in the script as being part Thai. Nevertheless he doesn't speak one word of Thai throughout the film. See more »
For a period of a couple of years, Loren Avedon appeared in several great martial arts movies with well choreographed, really fun and enjoyable martial arts action. King of the Kickboxers is another great movie and quite similar to the No Retreat, No Surrender movies which were all fun. It's entertainment from beginning to end, superb fighting is what this is about. Don't look for acting, story or things like that, because there aren't any. The appearance of Billy Blanks adds something extra to this film. He's a bad guy in this, and IMHO he suits that better than being a good guy. I think it's because he lacks that special 'good guy charisma', but as a villain he's great.
