Storyline

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.

"I'm a champion kickboxer AND I'm Rambo... Sheyah buddy!"
18 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is how low budget action movies should be made. Tongue in cheek, with bits of humour amongst the action. On top of likable comedic performances from Sasha Mitchell and Dennis Chan, (the former of which, as another poster suggested, let his Step by Step alter ego "Cody" get into this film), there is also beautiful (and authentic) Brazilian scenery and music. Back to Mitchell's performance; the guy is no Kevin Spacey. Hell, if you think about it, he's somewhere between a porn guy and the dog from Fraiser in acting ability. But he can do one thing well; The likeable doofus. Granted, it is kind of strange seeing Cody from Step by Step whoopin' ass, but it's a quirk that helps the film and gives it a real "personality". As well, you almost aren't sure if he's gonna get through some of the situations he's put in. There is one problem with this movie though. WAY too many pastel shirts. I think old David Sloane needs to get a fashion consultant, because even though this movie was made in the early '90s, he kind of looks like a Miami Vice reject with the clothes and the haircut. (Come to think of it, so does Rick Comar, the villain) OK.. back on track.... Although there are several implausibilities, not the least of which is how a kickboxer is also trained like an Army Ranger, and some bad dialogue, this is a fun movie to watch with lots of humour and some good fights. It's not up to theatrical standards, but it is far superior to most B movie, straight to video tripe that is made. 9/10
