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>

Disappointing
12 May 2005 | by sveknuSee all my reviews

Daniel Bernhard returns in this 3rd installment in the series. I suspect that this movie were made in a big rush, since it's worse than "Bloodsport 2" in many ways. First of all, the story is a little bit too standard. But that is of course not the most important. The fighting in this movie isn't that good, and it's just too much of the same styles. The Kumite in this movie has to be the worst Kumite ever arranged. One detail that particularly draw my attention, was one of the fighters sitting on the bench ringside and waiting to fight. On the bench, he didn't have any hair on his chest at all. But when he was fighting, he suddenly had lots of hair. Things like this confirms that this is a C-movie, and probably really low-budget. What where they thinking?
