Product Description

Jean-Claude Van Damme, Harold Diamond Eric Sloane is crowned the World Kickboxing Champion following his tremendous victory in the US national competition. Proclaiming that he will now take on the best in the world, Eric and his brother Kurt head to the Far East for a showdown with the legendary Tong Po. As the bout begins, Eric is outclassed by the vicious Thai. To assert his dominance Tong Po cripples Eric in a horrifying and unnecessary act of gratuitous violence. Kurt swears revenge, but the only way to avenge his brother is to tackle Tong Po in the ring. This sets Kurt on a journey of new discovery to learn the unorthodox methods needed to take on the invincible Thai killer and become the legendary Bak Shung: The White Warrior.

5.0 out of 5 stars enter the dragon meets saturday night fever 16 Nov 2005
Format:DVD
where do i begin? a classic van damme masterclass and no mistake. a highly original plot where jean-claude must take revenge on the fighter who crippled his brother. to do this jean must learn the art of muay thai. but orthodox training will not do, for this he must have large coconuts dropped on him, having meat attached to his legs and getting chased by ravenous dogs and have his legs pulled apart by ropes. there are several true moments of genius in this epic film. firstly the subtle manner in which we find out why jean has a european accent and his brother, who looks like slater from saved by the bell, has an american accent. beautiful. secondly the sheer evil of the villain in this motion picture, tong po, makes the film such a winner. imagine if you will general zod from superman 2 with a ponytail and you will have a fair idea of the evil jean must tackle to avenge his pimp moustached, perm-mulleted brother. jean-claude gives one of his best perforamces ever in kickboxer and surely at least deserved an oscar nomination. in terms of performance it matches anything by day-lewis, pacino or de-niro.
but the greatest moment in this film and perhaps in the history of film is the scene in the bar where jean dances. he gets drunk and performs a classic, beautiful and life affirming groove. its all there-the boogle grind, the splits and the random hand claps. you would think you were watching an mc hammer video. i have many times tried to emulate his dancing techniques but have never come close.
so dont delay, add kickboxer to your collection today you wont regret it. if nothing else it will show how high up a gentleman can wear his trousers.

4.0 out of 5 stars revenge is a dangerous motive! 28 July 2006
By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Kickboxer is a film that is still brilliant after all these years,its a film that cant caim to have the best script,or the best acting but in terms of sheer entertainment and with some amazing fight scenes ,kickboxer is indeed a cracking film.

At its most basic the film is a straight forward revenge movie,something that van damme has done many times in his career but this is one of his best.His kickboxing skills are sublime and his training regime harps back to the rocky movies,you watch him grow and develop his skills until he is a mean killing machine.

All in all this is a movie that asks for little but your will to watch it,there isnt a complex plot or anything like that,just the desire to entertain and have you cheering for van dammes character and cheer you will.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Blu Review 6 - Kickboxer 31 May 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Kickboxer Blu Ray Review

Distributor Lionsgate US

Remember the late 1980's?

Music and film was changing forever, television was becoming less interesting and we had Jean Claude Van Damme kicking his way through every bad guy who was sillyenough to get in his way (well, he was starting to at least)

Yes, this was the film that put Van Damme firmly on the road to all martial arts fans front rooms and although one of his first films, it was also one of his best films which now reaches US blu ray from Lionsgate, which thankfully in this case is not region locked.

Kickboxer on blu ray is presented in a 16x9 1080p transfer which states that it has been newly remastered. Well, the film has in fact been remastered and it looks a LOT better than the DVD issues which all had horrible transfers to begin with, but don't go expecting to see a Dark Knight quality transfer in this release. Due to original film elements etc.. I do actually think that this is the best this film will ever look, the only way to upgrade this print would be to strike a new digital transfer from the original negatives and I honestly cannot see any distributor seeing that as a worth while investment.

On the other hand do not be put off by this review, I did like the transfer to this film, I just wasn't blown away by it, but again this film never was a special effects laden reference quality movie to begin with

The audio offered here is 5.1 DTS which again is adequate for the movie although the rear speakers will not have a lot to do here and again it is a big improvement over earlier DVD releases.

Extras wise it's a let down, that is unless you consider English and Spanish subtitles worthy as an extra feature which is all that is on offer here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legendary 11 May 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Do not listen to the other reviewers, this film is one of the best ever made and my only critiscism is that they do not make them like this anymore. I particularly love the dancing scene where Jean Claude is drunk as well as when 'kiki' the dog dies, it is hilarious, I agree with the other reviewer that his brother being knocked out his wheelchair is another reason to buy this film, as is his moustache. All in all the other reviewers took this film too seriously so I had to do it justice. If you like this check out my other favourites from the decade - Commando, Predator, Teen Wolf, GhostBusters, Uncle Buck

4.0 out of 5 stars Regarding the US Blu-ray 14 Feb 2013
By Dale
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I ordered the Blu-ray 2 weeks back and it arrived yesterday. I was kinda worried as Amazon reviews and Blu-ray.com stated that it was a bad transfer but trust me it looks great on Blu-ray don't be put off just order it. The only problem is the audio but that's not a big problem considering it has good picture quality 10 times better then the god awful DVD.
