Storyline

One year after the events of "Kickboxer: Vengeance", Kurt Sloan has vowed never to return to Thailand. However, while gearing up for a MMA title shot, he finds himself sedated and forced back into Thailand, this time in prison. He is there because the ones responsible want him to face a 6'8" 400 lbs. beast named Mongkut and in return for the fight, Kurt will get one million dollars and his freedom back. Kurt at first refuses, in which a bounty is placed on his head as a way to force him to face Mongkut. Kurt soon learns he will have no other choice and will undergo his most rigorous training yet under some unexpected mentors in order to face Mongkut in hopes to regain his freedom. But is later beaten up by mongkut in the the first, but later gears up and defeated mongkut thereby gaining his freedom and pay. Written by Ninja01

I personally loved it
15 May 2020 | by BrooklynsmagicmikeSee all my reviews

If you're someone whos not really into low budget martial arts film then this movie is not for you. The issue to often with movies like this is whether it Scott Adkins, Alain Moussi, or Michael Jai White. People tend to believe that it should be up to standard with films like Warrior and so forth. Newsflash they're not, these movies are strictly fighting/action based. Sure they have some plot but thats not what they're intended to do. They are to showcase the skills of the martial art actors involved.

With that off my chest back to the movie. This movie had it all for me. Well known actors, great fighting scenes, bit of romance, and good pacing. The climax which for me is my personal biggest issue with big hollywood movies (Bad guy dying in a 2 minute scene) was honestly one of best I've ever seen. It was long, engaging, and very fresh.

Only reason I wont give a 10 even though id personally love to has to do with polish. The movie though made in 2018 felt like it was made in the 90s. Just had very dated feel to it. Other then that great movie overall and would def recommend it.
