Trivia

The original script, written by star Robert Chapin, was much darker than the final product in which Alex, the main character, was suckered so deeply into the world of drugs, money, women and bloodsport that by the time he was reunited with Elena, he doesn't even recognize her. When MCA/Universal picked it up for home video distribution, it deemed the original script too dark and hired another writer to revise it to make it more lighthearted. See more »

Goofs

In the first fights without swords, a guy dodges an attack by back-flipping and landing on his belly. After this he gets up and does a double front kick, Again he falls, this time on his back. During both falls a crash mat can be seen. See more »

Ring of Crap
7 March 2003 | by (Hoekum, NJ) – See all my reviews

Not even the "swordsmanship" of this dog could keep me from laughing out loud at the truly forgettable and entirely laughable attempts at writing, acting and directing.

OK, I get it, you aren't suppose to watch "Blood Sport" for the acting, but there is a definite standard of acting and story that have to be present, even in pure action flicks. And it just wasn't here.

My recommendation, invite some friends over, rent this lame-o flick, drink a lot and MST it to death (don't worry, it won't take much effort).

Oh yeah, and the swordplay is really not that great. Mainly there to appeal to the Ren Fair crowd that think that wearing a dull costume blade, and watching Highlander repeatedly, constitutes their unlimited knowledge of the blade.
