When Ivan enters the building for the Karate championship at the end of the film, some guys in his entourage (especially the Hispanic-looking man in a white shirt and beige pants) show up as extras in the crowd who are booing Ivan. See more »
Jean-Claude Van Damme's character is Ivan, but in the ending credits, next to his name reads, "Karl Brezdin". See more »
Another scene cut out in US video releases was a small chase sequence in which Scott, after being yelled at by his father for his laziness, chases R.J. only to fall in wet cement after R.J. jumps a hurdle on his skateboard. See more »
I'm not a fan of watching campy movies. I can laugh an inept movie for a few minutes but then I get bored. Some people might watch "No Retreat, No Surrender" as camp. I don't but that doesn't mean that it's a good movie. It's not. It does, however, have a certain charm that makes the ridiculousness watchable. I watch "No Retreat, No Surrender" every once in a while. I won't say that it hits the spot but it's a strangely almost satisfying watch.
