Storyline

Eric and Kurt Sloane are the descendants of a well-known Venice, California-based family of martial artists. Kurt has always been in older brother, Eric's shadow, as he lacks the instincts needed to become a champion. Against Kurt's concerns, Eric accepts a paid offer and travels to Thailand to challenge the Muay Thai champion Tong Po and fails with dire consequences. Kurt sets out for revenge. He trains with his brother's mentor, Durand, for a Muay Thai fight against the merciless champion, Tong Po. Durand first thinks Kurt is impossible to train, but through a series of spiritual exercises and tests, Durand discovers that Kurt has a deeper strength that will carry him through his final showdown with Tong Po.

In the scene where they are escaping from prison and jumping off the second floor into the street (approximately 59 minutes into the film), the stunt crew is clearly visible on the ground with the landing pad for the jump as they climb onto the top of the police truck. When they jump down off the truck, the edge of the pad comes up into the frame. See more »

But why?...
23 September 2016 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Alright, there is no secret about that I sat down to watch this movie solely because that Jean Claude Van Damme was in it. And while I knew that he was not the main actor, then I still had some hope for the movie, especially since I grew up with his action movies.

The 2016 "Kickboxer" movie was a slap to the face, pardon the pun. Why? Well, it was essentially just one long training montage that lead up to the showdown between Tong Po (played by Dave Bautista) and Kurt Sloane (played by Alain Moussi). Yeah, that was essentially it. But wait, it gets better, because you already know the outcome of the final showdown from the moment the movie starts. Yes, it is one of those predictable martial arts movies, just as if it was taken straight out of the 80s or 90s.

The story, quickly summarized, is about Kurt who seeks to be trained by Durand (played by Jean Claude Van Damme), after his older brother Eric was killed by Tong Po in an underground martial arts fight in Thailand. Kurt wants to avenge his brothers death.

Yeah, that was it, that was essentially the entire movie summarized.

Right, well the fighting in the movie was adequate and entertaining, albeit very predictable outcome of the fights, as to be expected. But let's face it, the martial arts is the main reason why we watch these types of movies.

As for the acting, well Jean Claude Van Damme did an okay job and he was the pillar who carried the movie. As for Dave Bautista, well, lets just say that he was, as usual, like a fish out of water; stripped of acting talents and just being there for his menacing hulking presence.

"Kickboxer" was a disappointing movie to say the least. And it is also the type of movies that once you have watched it, then chances are very, very slim that you will ever watch it again - unlike many other martial arts movies from the 80s and 90s.

This is a movie for hardcore fans of anyone on the cast list. Other than that, then there really is no particular reason for sitting down to watch it, because it is not a memorable or impressive movie in any way. And it wasn't hardly a movie that was a necessary addition to the martial arts genre.
