Storyline

Bloodsport III brings us back to the world of Alex Cardo. This time he must battle in a fight to end all fights - The Kumite, the most vicious warrior alive - Beast. He must not only battle for his own honor, but also avenge the death of Sun, his mentor, teacher, and spiritual "father", when Sun is spitefully killed by crime boss Duvalier. In order to defeat Beast, destroy Duvalier, and avenge Sun's death, Alex turns to Leung, to whom he was indebted in Bloodsport II. Leung directs him to the great shaman, Makato "the Judge", to whom Alex must turn for guidance. The judge teaches him to fully channel the energy in his mind and body, in order to rout the Beast in the Kumite. Written by <tkroll@chs.cusd.claremont.edu>

Goofs

Alex learns from Sun "the Iron Hand," the move which is pretty much a super power. Alex never forgot it, but he doesn't even bother to use it on Beast, which would have won him the match in an instant. See more »

Alternate Versions

The 1996 UK video was cut by 26 secs with edits to shots of Lima Lama's arm, hand and neck being broken, and Alex punching Beast in the throat. The Metrodome DVD features the same cut print. See more »

pure crap.
22 August 1999 | by SZMSee all my reviews

I saw Bloodsport, sadly one of Van Damme's best films, and could say it wasn't all that stupid. Number 2 was far more entertaining, mostly because they cast Daniel Bernhardt as the lead, (a basically taller, better acting, better looking and better fighting version of JCVD). Now comes lucky number 3. For the love of your sanity, don't see this movie! Don't touch this piece of maggot-infested crap! I lost an hour of my life that i'll never get back (thats how much of it I stomached before I tossed it out the window). If you feel the need to see a film that so bad that it actually entertains you, go see "Cool As Ice". Bloodsport 3, however, is not one of those films.
