Trivia

The prison sequences were shot at a real prison in Bulgaria and actual prisoners were extras in the scenes. See more »

Goofs

During the final fight scene, when John jams the pen into Schrek's ear, and then kicks it, it alternates very rapidly between two shots, one where Schrek is holding his ear in pain, and another where his arms are at his sides. It is obviously two different takes of the same scene badly edited in together. See more »

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.

UNUSUAL AND TONGUE IN CHEEK ENTRY IN THE FRANCHISE
19 August 2001 | by (CARDIFF,WALES) – See all my reviews

This movie is a weird and wacky entry in the BLOODSPORT franchise but is an enjoyable fun way of spending 90 minutes of your time.Daniel Bernhardt,the cut-price Van Damme is on fine form here as he fights his way into and through yet another kumite competition but one which bears little relationship to the one in the original movie.Bernhardt probably has less chance than most in the martial field to break into the big time but it is a competitive field in that genre of cinema and nowadays it seems to be the actors who have worked their passage through Hong Kong cinema who succeed in the west.Hopefully though this personable performer will continue to churn out entertaining kick-fests like BLOODSPORT 4.
