Daniel Bernhardt plays a different character in this movie than he did in the previous two Bloodsport movies. In this movie he plays John Keller in the previous two movies he played Alex Cardo. See more »
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 »
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.

In that this sequel is easily the worst of the series but the silver lining being that it is the last one in this uninspired franchise. One may recall that the original starred Jean-Claude Van Damme as a major who flew to Hong Kong to compete in an outlawed tournament, this time the tournament angle is fairly undeveloped as the Jean-Claude Van Damme movie this most resembles is Death Warrant, except much, much worse. The production values of this Z-grade stinker is worse than you could imagine, for one there is absolutely no reason that a production should look this bad. The prison sequences look extremely cheap and it becomes quite obvious that this is being shot in some abandoned warehouse or storage area. Another aspect is that of the really bad fight sequences, these are so poorly staged and slow that one wonders if it even deserves to be compared to it's lame predecessor (# 3) let alone Bloodsport # 1 and # 2. Bloodsport IV is the worst of the series and without doubt due to it's sheer badness factor. Movies seriously don't get as poorly made or dull as this stinker. There is nothing at all to redeem anything to even earn a full star. This is the pits.
