Goofs

There is very little plot continuity between this movie and Bloodsport III. Although it is the same actor in the lead role, the character has changed from Alex Cardo, an ex-con turned reformed martial artist who competes in Kumite, to John Keller, a decorated police officer. The only plausible explanation is that the story from the previous movie is a wash. What makes things even more confusing is that at the beginning of the movie, John speaks of remembering a time when Kumite meant something, possibly indicating he has a history of competing in Kumite. Since Kumite is an illegal underground martial arts event, he could not have possibly have competed in the Kumite and been a decorated police officer at the same time. See more »

Excellent.................JUST KIDDING!!!!
24 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

I have to be totally honest with you people about this one. This is a movie that everyone should avoid at all costs. It didn't seem possible that the Bloodsport-series could get as low as this, but it did. First of all: The acting has to be the worst I've ever seen. I can't believe that it's possible to act as bad as some of the people in this movie do. The two villain's are especially bad. The movie has a really dark feel to it, and I didn't like that at all. It's filmed in Bulgaria. I guess that was the only thing they could afford, but it looks really, really bad. Good fighting scenes sometimes save a really bad movie, but that doesn't happen here at all. The fighting scenes are in fact really bad, and they're a big waste of Bernhardt's great potential. Oh, did I forget to mention that the plot sucks big time? A VERY, VERY BAD movie indeed.
