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.

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.

Trivia.

2)The scene in which Kurt has meat tied to his leg and is chased by Xian Chow's dog was inspired by a real-life event in which a young Jean-Claude Van Damme was ordered by his karate teacher to wear a protective suit & withstand the attempts of a trained dog to pull him to the ground.
3)Dennis Alexio, who plays Eric Sloane, was a heavyweight kick boxing champion who held several titles.
4)This was Co-written by Jean Claude Van Damme & Mark DiSalle (who also directs) rw-written into a screenplay by Glenn A.Bruce.
5)The UK DVD release uses a whole new voice dub for Dennis Alexio (Eric Sloane).
6)Passed uncut by the BBFC in 2002

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
this is my personnel favourite van damme film of all time and for years I had to make do with the british region 2 cut version so imagine my delight when I finally found a kickboxer uncut version I ordered it immediately so what can I say about kickboxer uncut version well basically its kickboxer cut version yes that's right cut version the labels that distribute these titles have loads of plausible reasons they give for these so called uncut versions ranging from the film has been reedited or former version was from another region or scenes have been lost in time etc but when you take away all the crap it means the films have been cut to pieces I don't really care what their reasons are I think if the version that is released is not the original film it should be so stated I really hate these misleading statements I found the same with another favourite film of mine an eye for an eye with chuck Norris although it did not say uncut it was advertised as 106 mins running time the actuall full length but alas yet again it was nothing of the sort it was just another cut to pieces 99 min version and I have found more so called uncut versions very much cut very dissapointing
