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

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

During the final fight, the spectators begin to chant "White warrior!" This makes, however, very little sense, as both combatants are 100% Caucasian. See more »

Check reality at the door, just another decent fighting movie
25 March 2018 | by jackmeatSee all my reviews

My quick rating - 5,0/10. Ok, I will admit I like these types of movies, regardless of how unbelievable they are (without spoiler, this one goes over the top). The story is the typical "I am not going to XXXX, anymore" Fill in the X with fight, crime, kill, whore yourself out, among other things to make the story of stopping something only to be forced back into it. In this case, tournament fighting. Well, there it is. The secondary characters of Mike Tyson and Christopher Lambert actually were used well. And then there is Jean Claude Van-Johnson....if you get that joke, you want to see this movie, if not, you probably aren't interested. The fight scenes are done quite well and are not filmed in hyper edit mode which seems to be the norm these days. Realistically, this movie should score below a 5, but the reason it should be lower is the reason I gave it 5. Once you see the movie, you will know just why when you roll your eyes and say "how stupid is that" Well that is what I did, and for a movie to actually get that reaction out of me, bonus points. Funny, just noticed, IMDB has it at a 5.0 as well lol.
