Don't waste your time on this rubbish

It's the sequel to the unwatchable Kickboxer Vengeance (which was a 2016 remake of the Jean Claude Van Damme film). It's on the same level as that film as it is dull and lacks any logic what so ever. It stars Alan Moussi as Kurt who is held prisoner and forced to fight. Scenery chewing Christopher Lambert has his wife hostage and blackmails him to fight a steroid addict (who is the size of an elephant).

Little is known about any of these characters and everything is so random it just makes no sense. What's worse is the writers make no effort to explore these characters and you'll be confused as to what the hell is going on. It's full of plot inconsistencies and unresolved storylines. To be honest there isn't really a plot, it's just a bunch of fight sequences mashed together.

Anyway, it's literally one fight scenario after another, and although some of them are ok, it just gets repetitive and boring. Jean Claude Van Damme returns as his trainer (who is now blind) and he just sleepwalks throughout his scenes. When it eventually gets to his training scenes, it's just massively underwhelming. Usually in these types of films, the training montages are the best bits.

When it comes to the final fight the buildup was pointless as it isn't exciting as it should have been. The characters are so one dimensional that by the end, you won't even care what happens to them. Its actually so bad it's laughable. Oh it also has Mike Tyson in it.
