The camp which Jean-Claude Van Damme's character visits during his search to find a trainer is the Sor Thanikul gym of Bangkok. Though defunct since 2003, it was a genuine training center for Muay Thai practitioners - housing over 50 kickboxers at any given time. See more »

The UK cinema version had 1m 17s of violent footage removed by the BBFC. The video version lost a further second in addition to this. All of the cuts were to kicks and punches plus a shot of an ear-clap. See more »
this is the one of my favorite van dam movies. I think that it is also one of his best films. We watch his character train throughout the movie for a fight at the end. The martial arts throughout are very well done. This is one of those films you can watch every time it is on TV. If you like martial arts movies you will probably enjoy this one. The movie though is all about the final fight. Like many other films of its type. All in all van dam is great and if you want to see a film based on the martial arts that doesn't have Druce Lee or Jackie Chan or Jet Li in it then this movie is one for you. The story is pretty simple but the fight scenes are worth it so go for it. 7 out of 10.
