Jean-Claude Van Damme,
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.Written by
Scott Adkins was approached to play Eric Sloane, but declined because he felt with a project like this, he wanted to showcase his action skills. The role eventually went to Darren Shahlavi. See more »
In the scene where they are escaping from prison and jumping off the second floor into the street (approximately 59 minutes into the film), the stunt crew is clearly visible on the ground with the landing pad for the jump as they climb onto the top of the police truck. When they jump down off the truck, the edge of the pad comes up into the frame. See more »
This could have been a good film, so many genuine Martial arts and MMA fighters should have made this a great film, plus with the legendary John Claude Van-Damme how could it go wrong? Well sadly it went very wrong and I believe this is mainly down to the lead role being the wrong actor. Alan Moussi is very athletic and can clearly do Martial Arts but he has no charisma and he is a terrible actor. I never once believed he could win against Dave Batista's Tong Po. For me he was almost as unconvincing as Ralph Macchio in the original Karate Kid movie.
Sara Malakul Lane adds some glamour but her character is pretty pointless and she seemed to just suddenly be in a relationship with Sloane for no reason.
So over all disappointing, JCVD still has it! It's a shame that Alan Moussi doesn't. Poor casting makes a bad movie always.
