Storyline

Eric and Kurt Sloane are the descendants of a well-known Venice, California-based family of martial artists. Kurt has always been in older brother, Eric's shadow, as he lacks the instincts needed to become a champion. Against Kurt's concerns, Eric accepts a paid offer and travels to Thailand to challenge the Muay Thai champion Tong Po and fails with dire consequences. Kurt sets out for revenge. He trains with his brother's mentor, Durand, for a Muay Thai fight against the merciless champion, Tong Po. Durand first thinks Kurt is impossible to train, but through a series of spiritual exercises and tests, Durand discovers that Kurt has a deeper strength that will carry him through his final showdown with Tong Po.

Lame, watered down reboot of a martial arts classic
22 January 2017 | by davideo-2See all my reviews

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

In this remake of the original Kickboxer movie, Kurt Sloane (Alain Moussi) tries to convince his kickboxing champion brother Eric (Darren Shahlavi) not to travel to the Far East to fight heaving warrior Tong Po (Dave Bautista) after getting a bad vibe. When Po cripples Eric, Kurt vows revenge, but after an attempt on Po's life goes wrong, he is left to turn to the unorthodox Master Durand (Jean Claude Van Damme) for the training he needs to illuminate Po in the ring, where his mystique will be broken forever.

Of all the franchises that are getting resurrected for profit, JCVD's cult martial arts classic Kickboxer might have been one of the least likely, but alas one seems to have been made, with the man himself reappearing in a supporting role, in a touch of irony now as the trainer with a new star as the aspiring young protégé. It hardly set the box office alight, and disappeared from it's limited cinema run at the speed of light. Despite being billed more as a sequel, it's actually a remake, and it's yet another of the soulless, sanitised, politically correct new reboots that sticks two fingers in the face of the no holds barred, take no prisoners 80s original.

Despite the musclebound, well honed, martial arts stars on display, instead of our moneysworth, what we are given is a series of tepid, watered down fight sequences, with a boring, unengaging story and a gormless looking lead character who looks too much like some English stand up comedian. As for VD himself, he puts on the usual drawn, grey act he's been doing in all his films lately, without any of the humour of dash of Mr. Zen from the original (not to mention the inexplicable dubbing of his voice?!?). The whole thing is like eating a bun without the burger, like the original all over again, but completely flat and without any impact.

You can't help but feel sorry for this generation of film goers, who seem to be getting served the processed meat of the prime ribs we were offered. *
