Storyline

This movie is supposed to be a sequel to the movie which starred Jean-Claude Van Damme. Only now the movie revolves around the brother of the character that Van Damme played. David Sloan is the brother Van Damme's Kurt Sloan. He runs a Karate gym. Now Mr. Sangha, the Thai government official who handles Tong Po, the brutal kickboxer whom Van Damme in the previous movie, wishes that Tong Po would have another shot at Kurt Sloan, so he could vindicate himself but Tong Po in a fit of rage shot and killed him thus depriving him of an opportunity to face him again. But when they hear of David, they decide that he will be the one whom Tong Po will face to regain his honor. But when David is injured, Xian David's teacher is brought over to help him with his recovery. And when he recovers, they set David up to fight Tong Po; who will survive?

Trivia

Neither Sasha Mitchell nor Michel Qissi ever touched real broken glass during the final fight scene: the "glass" worn on their fists is actually silicone ice, and a fake human arm (cast from the fist of props coordinator Tighe Barry)was used in the shot wherein David Sloan rubs his fist into the container of glass shards.

Goofs

During the opening credits, a picture is seen of David with his two brothers, who are clearly different actors than from the first movie. See more »

Quotes

Sanga: [Sanga's Thug Set's Up A Video Recorder] The video's for out people at home, prooves that we have regained our honour.
David Sloan: It ain't over...
Sanga: ...until the fat lady sings. Yes I'm familiar with that expression. You fight Muay Thai until one of you can no longer continue. Understood.

Alternate Versions

At the time of its release, there was a longer version which showed Tong Po training and re-fighting Jean-Claude Van Damme's character Kurt Sloane (played by Emmanuel Kervyn this time). By all accounts the fight scenes were better than the actual end-fight, so the scenes containing Kurt, Eric and Xian's niece Mylee were cut down to a few seconds, showing Kurt Sloane with the bullet hole in the head and Tong Po walking away.

Acceptable sequel
7 March 2010 | by sveknuSee all my reviews

First of all, I daresay that the rating for this movie is too low. I give it a 5 out of 10, which is more in line with the overall quality of this than the measly 3.3 displayed on the IMDb at the moment. It's of course nowhere near as good as the first Kickboxer, but it doesn't have to be. Sasha Mitchell is no van Damme, but he does his job in a way I won't complain about. One of the good things about this is the return of Michael Qissi as Tong Po. This gives a link to the first film and makes the whole thing more interesting. But most importantly, the fight scenes are decent, the plot is not that bad and if you sit back and relax you'll see that this movie is entertaining if you have the right kind of expectations beforehand. Nothing Oscar-worthy, but as a simple martial arts/action movie this is more than OK for a night's viewing.
