An Insult to Fans of the Franchise!!!
26 January 2018 | by BatmanFunReviews2018See all my reviews

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. Kickboxer is one of my favorite Van Damme films of all time it was well made and had some excellent fight scenes now the sequels? were more into 'bad filmmaking' territory. When i heard that i remake was coming i got a bit worried but 'Kickboxer: Vengeance' managed to be an enjoyable remake not perfect but good for what it was and then there's 'Kickboxer: Retaliation' that takes the Franchise lots of steps back. The acting was good and some fight scenes were handled quite well and looked beautiful but the movie was so over the top for example one main character 'dies' and then comes back to life after he gets injected with something, Van Damme gets blind all the sudden for no reason at all and there's a ridiculous opening dance sequence and a terrible chase scene between a boat and a bike with Sloan becoming 'Superman' on air. Overall this movie was terrible both as a sequel and a reboot but also as a Kickboxer movie and an insult to fans both of the original and the remake and at times it even copies 'Rocky IV' for some reason. (2/10)
