Jean-Claude Van Damme,
Sara Malakul Lane,
Together with his trainer Xian, Kickbox champion David Sloan arrives in Rio de Janeiro for a show fight. Soon he's confronted with the darker sides of the city, when pocket picker Costa tries to steal his camera. He takes him and his beautiful sister Isabella under his wings and to his fight. There Isabella gains the attention of a ruthless white-slave agent, who happens to be his opponent Martin's manager. Not long until David needs to use his fighting skill also outside the ring.

Early in the film when the characters are at the kickboxing exhibition, David is wearing a top which reads 'Benny The Jet's World Champion Karate'. Benny Urquidez was an undefeated Kickboxing champion over a career lasting almost thirty years and is considered one of the best ever alongside people such as Don Wilson. He has been in 2 Jackie Chan films which are Wheels On Meals and Dragons Forever, and he worked as a choreographer and fight coordinator in the second instalment of this franchise: 'The Road Back'.

You keep your eye on Isabella. OK.
Got it covered. You just go up and fight.

You can do it, David, you're the best.

Sasha Mitchell reprises his role as David Sloan who has since # 2 become a bona-fide kickboxing champion who flies to Rio to compete to defend his championship however along the way he decides to take down a prostitution racket and does so without hardly breaking a sweat. Did I give away too much by the last sentence? Well let's just say that this predictable sequel is a marginal improvement over # 2. This time there is more attractive scenery, more action and more plot than # 2, which was irritatingly straight forward.) That being said the movie is still hugely flawed. The main problem dealing with the fact that K3 has little kickboxing. Indeed the fight sequence at the end as well as the opponent could've easily been written out and it wouldn't have changed a thing. Mitchell and Chan rely on more guns and while this element works for action fans, the lack of training montage and fights make this a tepid effort.
