Quotes

Keller: No! I will not kill. This man fought with skill and dignity, and you would have me destroy that integrity? And why? To satisfy your lust for death? There was a time when the Kumite meant honor, but I see now that Kumite is dead. It has become nothing more than a bloodsport.

DEFINITELY THE DARKEST ONE YET....
2 August 1999 | by (NEW YORK CITY) – See all my reviews

If the franchise is to survive than it is imperative that the producers stick to the original idea. #4 is not related to the prior entries other than the fact that this stars Daniel Bernhardt. In the two prior entries, Bernhardt played Alex Cardo, an art dealer who learns the way of the Kumite to better himself. #4 finds him playing a new character, John Keller, a cop who participates in illegal street fights. When inmates start turning up missing at a local prison, Keller is asked to cover undercover to find out what is going on. Once in, he finds out that he has been targeted by the crazed Caesar to participate in a mysterious Kumite event. This film draws parallels to JCVD "Death Warrant" but the script and direction need work. Bloodsport 4 is watchable, thanks mainly to Bernhardt's screen presence.
