There is very little plot continuity between this movie and Bloodsport III. Although it is the same actor in the lead role, the character has changed from Alex Cardo, an ex-con turned reformed martial artist who competes in Kumite, to John Keller, a decorated police officer. The only plausible explanation is that the story from the previous movie is a wash. What makes things even more confusing is that at the beginning of the movie, John speaks of remembering a time when Kumite meant something, possibly indicating he has a history of competing in Kumite. Since Kumite is an illegal underground martial arts event, he could not have possibly have competed in the Kumite and been a decorated police officer at the same time. See more »
No! I will not kill. This man fought with skill and dignity, and you would have me destroy that integrity? And why? To satisfy your lust for death? There was a time when the Kumite meant honor, but I see now that Kumite is dead. It has become nothing more than a bloodsport.

Stefanos Miltsakakis is awesome. Unfortunately even he cannot save this horrible movie. Stefanos plays a villian named Schrek. He's a huge hulk of man who can take a beating and keep fighting. He's appeared in five Jean-Claude Van Damme movies including: Maximum Risk, The Quest, and Lionheart. This movie, unlike some of his other projects, is just one major cheese fest. The plot is thin, the acting is wooden, and while there are some good fight scenes (with Stefanos, of course) it's just not enough. The main bad guy, the prison warden, is totally laughable. So, if you're forced to watch Bloodsport: The Dark Kumite I recommend you fast forward to the fight scenes because you won't be missing much.
