Chuck Norris was originally supposed to star as Kurt Sloane. See more »
Towards the end of the second round, there is one sequence where Tong Po punches Kurt in the stomach 4 times, punches him in the face 3 times, punches him in the face 13 times rapidly, punches him in the stomach 9 times rapidly, and then does this double-fist type of move on his face. Tong Po's hands are covered in broken glass. In all probability, Kurt's face and stomach would resemble raw hamburger meat at this point, but he only has one major cut on his face and one on his stomach, both of which occurred earlier in the fight.

The Full Uncut Version of Kickboxer (never been seen before) clocks in at 98:54 seconds (PAL) / 103.01 seconds (NTSC). All US R Rated versions on DVD/Blu Ray are cut by 5 minutes or so and miss vital plot scenes, shorten or remove other scenes completely and omit nudity that are only present in the International versions on VHS Video from Palace & EIV along with the German 2 Disc Action Edition (German Audio). All of these versions are cut slightly for violence though. See more »
It has been made a lot of sequels in this series,but this one is the only that is worth watching. It is kind of like Rocky,in the sense that he traines all the movie for a fight in the end. The fight scenes are hardcore and the one at the end is quite cool. This cant be compared to the best movies of Jackie Chan and Jet Li,but it is still a good martial arts movie.
One of Van Dammes best to date.
