Did You Know?


Though already a martial artist and owner of a dojo, Nicholas Hill hadn't been active in competition prior to his role in the movie. As a promotional gimmick, Hill gained entry to the second World Vale Tudo Championships, where he faced Pedro Rizzo in a no-holds-bared match. Whereas the promoters expected this to be a one-time event, Hill was eager to compete and thus initiated a six-year career as a professional cage fighter. See more »


During the scene where Alex is to sell the katana in the hotel lobby, his partner says, "Stealing from James Leung is suicide." The character's name is David, not James. See more »


Kim Campbell: Is Jackson your first name?
Ray 'Tiny' Jackson: It's actually Raymond.
Sergio DaSilva: [shocked] Raymond?

I just finished watching this movie right now, I've seen it a flew times now, and I like it, its a good martial arts movie, al thogh...it still dosnt come close to the first Bloodsport, which is one of my favorite films of all time. its a classic.....you should see this movie if you like movies like this......but, I gotta say, the guy who plays Alex is the best Van damme rip off I have ever seen!....I think they should make a new bloodsport , and call it, Bloodsport 5: the return of Frank Dux! lol, and have Van Damme fight this guy that trys to imitate him in these movies! That would be funny!
