Kickboxer Vengeance was bad enough. It had redeeming qualities, but only for those who liked the original, appreciated Bautista as Tong Po and enjoyed the countless cameos.
Kickboxer Retaliation is not a sequel or a remake. It's just a pointless movie with the same actors who tried to make the same (bad) movie with 10% of their motivation. Sure, the story about Sloan training and fighting for a newer, bigger and badder enemy in order to save his girl is bad and non-existent, and sure, the acting was atrocious. But the actors didn't even seem to enjoy their work, or give their best during the fight scenes. Let alone that the 2 most important co-stars JC Van Damme and Christopher Lambert looked like they hated their work and were fighting Crohn disease at the same time.
The best part of this movie are the scenes with Mike Tyson, who seems to be a pleasant surprise in various action movies. But that alone doesn't make this movie worth your time and money.
