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.

An insult to the original
6 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

I knew this movie was going to be bad, I knew that it was going to be awful but I didn't expect that it was going to be the trash that it is. One of the worst turds I've ever watched.

The film gets the premise of the original film but changing the narrative structure and adding lame new characters and subplots. There is a police subplot and a love story that doesn't even fit in the rest of this disaster...

The disastrous editing doesn't help neither, full of abrupt cuts and chopping editing that lacks of emotion of any kind of epic, in fact the training montages are awfully bad and the soundtrack which was one of the biggest virtues of the original film ,here is just horrendous.

Alan Moussi is a guy who is very athletic and has good Martial Arts skills but he has zero charisma and even less screen presence and besides that he is a terrible actor .

Dave Batista's Tong Po is just a muscle mountain with eyes that doesn't even intimidate and without any kind of depth in his character, he is just there smiling, walking and fighting , nothing else.

The girl who plays the protagonist love affair of the film I still don't even know what the she was doing in the movie.

The only reason why Gina Carano is making movies nowadays is because she was a MMA star , and she doesn't fight once in the whole movie , why they hired her then? .

GSP should keep away from cinema, he is one of the greatest fighters in MMA history but as an actor he is just awful ( He says his famous word "I'm not impressed by your performance " in the film, MMA fans will know what I mean :P

Jean Claude Van Damme (which is the best of the movie) have some good fight scenes ,overshadowing Moussi by the way , but his performance is nothing special neither, he don't even look to be taking serious the role and he just seem to be there to cash his check and have some fun and. I don't understand neither why they dubbed his voice in many scenes and his fight with GSP wasn't bad but it could have been better...

There are so many action sequences but are just decent , nothing really worth to be mention.

MMA legends as Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum also appears in the film, but they are wasted, the director didn't know how to take advantage of their skills as fighters, Cain and Vandamme have a fight but is awful...

The final fight of the movie is long and boring , it lacks of any kind of thrill or emotion, and is basically a copy of the fight of the original film but lacking of the epic and the magic of that fight.

The movie has no personality and the only reason that was made is to cash on the name of a martial arts classic , Van Damme wasn't even the first choice to play the role of the master and he was only hired because they didn't have anyone to play the role.

I liked the cameo of Michel Quissi but I didn't enjoy the post credits scene.

The worst thing about this is that they are making a sequel now with people as Ronaldinho in the cast :(

The only positive thing I can say about the movie is that it makes you realize how great the original film is. it was a production much cheaper than this but it has become in an inspirational classic of martial arts cinema that has been inspired young kids to train for over 30 years.

One of the biggest turds ever made, let's move on and forget this trash was never made, the bastard sequels with Sasha Mitchel are even better than this and those movies are not good at all...
