Kickbox champion Matt Reeves witnesses the murder of his friend Johnny. When he investigates on the circumstances it appears that a Mr. Neegal in South Africa has founded a new kickbox association and does not leave international champions much of a chance. Johnny had to pay with his life when he did not want to join. Neegal seems to kill everybody who is in his way. Matt is on his own now, but suddenly finds an unexpected ally.

In the climactic brawl, just before Matt's final confrontation against Negaal, a casino dealer, played by stunt performer June Castro, comes out of nowhere to help dispatch Negaal's men. She is nowhere to be found in the rest of the film so it is unclear what her involvement in the film is. See more »

Predictable and boring
26 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

Mark Dacascos delivers the moves and his usual workman-like acting job in this utterly predictable martial arts revenge flick. James Ryan is appropriately evil and vicious--until he just caves before our hero. But little, not even the location filming in South Africa, can save this by-the-numbers film, especially with a climax that is...well, just not climactic.
