Jean-Claude Van Damme,
Rocky has been holding the title as the heavyweight champion until he is defeated by a brutal challenger, and now must regain his fighting spirit through a big rematch, trained by an unlikely ally: his old nemesis Apollo Creed.
Sasha Mitchell ("Kickboxer 2&3") triumphantly returns to the ring as David Sloan, fighting not just for his survival, but for his beautiful wife, who has become the sexual captive of the despicable world champion, Tong Po. Framed, forgotten and furious, Sloan has been wasting away in prison, but the Feds agree to release him if he will get inside Tong Po's impenetrable Mexican fortress, protected by its deadly guards and adorned by its sexual slaves. Sloan has no choice but to enter into Po's tournament of champions, a savage battle where winner takes all - and to Sloan - that means everything! Reluctantly, alliances form with a few others to help him out. Written by

I originally stopped watching this series years ago after being disappointed by part 3 - the fact that this subsequent entry in the series was directed by Albert Pyun didn't exactly encourage me to give the series another try. Well, I finally watched it, and I can say it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. For one thing, some of the fight choreography is pretty good - the tournament fight sequences have choreography that feels much more realistic than you usually get in movies like this, and the bar room brawl is fun to watch. Still, watching these sequences you still say to yourself "It could have been better." That's because once again, Albert Pyun constantly puts the camera in the wrong place or angle, and there are numerous cutaways to people observing the fights - sometimes in the very heat of the battle! Poor photography (often the lens looks like it was smeared with Vaseline) doesn't help, though admitedly the rest of the movie doesn't come across as cheap as Pyun's other efforts -except maybe for the hilarious makeup job for the replacement actor for the Tong Po character. (Perhaps Pyun should have stopped and thought for a minute about the fact he couldn't convince the original actor to return for this entry!)
