He must not only battle for his own honor, but also avenge the death of Sun, his mentor, teacher, and spiritual "father", when Sun is spitefully killed by crime boss Duvalier. In order to defeat Beast, destroy Duvalier, and avenge Sun's death, Alex turns to Leung to whom he was indebted in Bloodsport II.

Not as good as the 2nd Bloodsport
10 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw bloodsport 2 I was so impressed. Bloodsport 2 had everything. Lots of fighters,a ruthless villain{Demon} and the character of Alex Cardo was cool. The story was good. A man sent to prison and makes friends with a man who becomes a mentor to him. And the man teaches him the Iron hand and Alex in return fights in the Kumite to win his friends freedom and to honor him for making Alex a changed man.

Then we come to Bloodsport 3. I was expecting another good movie. Instead I was let down. Don't get me wrong. The only good part about this movie is the fight scenes. Thats it.

This movie didn't have many fight scenes. Or for that matter many fighters. And the main villain/fighter the beast,is no where as awesome and ruthless as the Demon from the second film. He seemed slow and tired at times and it looked liked they had to stop the fights just so the guy could regain his breath.

Not to mention the storyline. What was the point of Alex having to go re learn martial arts if he already knew how to fight. All he would have to have done is use the iron hand on the beast and win the damn thing.

And the fighters in this movie wern't as good. They seemed skinny as hell and arrogant.

This movie shouldn't have been made. Or it needed another storyline. A better storyline. Stick with the first 2 films. Don't waste your time on this movie. It will disappoint you start to finish.
