Jean-Claude Van Damme,
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.Written by
Despite the original Kickboxer having five sequels, this is only the second time Jean-Claude Van Damme appears in a sequel, in the franchise and the second time the character of Kurt Sloan will be the lead character instead of being killed off as in the original Kickboxer 2. See more »
Far better than the previous chapter, Kickboxer: Retaliation delivers spectacular fun!
The flick really surprised me.
It contains some well-choreographed action scenes and the storytelling is very intense.
Alain Moussi is a great choice as Kurt Sloan. The man is very skilled in martial arts and boy, this is visible on the screen.
The whole cast is superb.
I really liked the cameo of Ronaldinho and how he throw balls at Kurt Sloan.
There are some quality fight scenes with Mike Tyson as well and JCVD is simply grea as Master Durand. His character is witty and well-written.
Jean-Claude proves that he still got the moves!
There are many MMA stars that appear in the movie as well and this powers the whole fun.
What makes the flick utterly entertaining is the almost half an hour long final one on one scenes between Alain Moussi and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, a.k.a. the Moutain from Game of Thrones.
This is arguably one of the most terrific one on one fighting scenes that I have recently watched.
To wrap it all up, Kickboxer: Retaliation is not a perfect movie but it is more than satisfying and if you are a fan of the quality martial arts actioners, this one won't dissapoint you.
