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>

Awful movie
20 April 2013 | by NemkeSRBSee all my reviews

Not interesting at all, plot is also bad. Bloodsport I was okay, II was kinda watchable, but III and IV are terrible! Poor acting, poor fighting scenes... This movie is one of those movies where you want to leave the cinema although you paid to watch it. Of course I didn't watch it in the cinema, but I was like "dear God, will it end already". You get bored watching it, you know the ending, there are no surprising parts, twists, nothing. I give it 5/10 while being very very generous! It's better than Bloodsport IV, but hey, that's not so hard since IV is one of the worst movies ever made! It would be better for director if he hadn't made sequels after first Bloodsport movie with van Damme. I'm really disappointed.
