JCVD returns as the teacher

My quick rating 5,0/10. I won't say much. If you like martial arts action films, you should be OK with this one. Typical avenge the death of your brother plot, so don't expect to be astonished. Nice choreography for the fight scenes with a nice nod to the MMA world sprinkled in. Good to see JCVD making a pseudo comeback such as this film. He plays the muay thai teacher role quite well. The use of Batista was also a nice choice as he looks and plays the part well (he doesn't need to say much) and riding his recent success helps. I think the movie would've been just fine without the pointless love story that most of the time you can't tell if it is actually happening or the main dudes wet dream. Beyond that, just know what you are getting in for. Fighting. (yes the broken glass from the original is used)

Oh, and if you like this movie, be happy to know there is a sequel on the way in 2017.

An honest, powerful but cheesy remake of a 80s classic.

I went to the world premiere Fantasia festival of Kickboxer remake.

This is coming from a Van damme, 80s movie fan. And its all that matters.

The movie is dumb, cheesy to the core, but sill, fun, with good moments, good old fights and real homage to not only the 80s, but what Van dammme gave us.

Van damme made the movie. He has amazing moments, scenes and fight a lot. Alain Moussi the star is great, he is showing his abilities on screen, GSP, the legendary Georges St-pierre put something far more better than the Winter soldier character with now, real comedy, fighting etc. and all of all three working should be enough to enjoy kickboxer.

Goods is that, its fun, its put many tribute moments to the original movie. It has amazing cinematography (mostly the training scenes in thailand), good old 80s vibe that true fans will enjoy, and not be taken seriously. Mma fans will love the show of many ufc fighters.

Again, if you are younger, or never was in this old era, you won't enjoy it or understand it for what it is...

Best JCVD film in years!

... and unfortunately a hard film to review.

The paradox is that the film succeeds where it doesn't want to -- and doesn't succeed where it wants to.

For example, as an out-of-the-box version or re-imagining of KICKBOXER, it does not quite make it.

The problem is not the direction, or cinematography (gorgeous), or even the script.

The problem is the casting of the main character.

At no point in this movie does Alain Moussi ever actually give the impression that he is strong enough or fast enough or skilled enough to take out the bad guy.

Think about it. Imagine the Rocky films if Stallone has been unable to "sell" his potential to be a winner???

That was the bad news. The good news is that it was a delight to see JCVD back in front of the camera, playing a super-cool "trainer" and showing off perhaps the world's most dangerous 55 year old.

The difference between a true star and a wannabee is that JCVD not only steals his scenes, but actually gives the impression that HE could win a fight with the dreaded Tong Po, age or no age.

Other than that, the film is fun but forgettable.

Gina Carano is also oddly cast as a promoter who throws tantrums but never a punch.

George St. Pierre sort of haunts the film as an odd character we never really get to know. (If nothing else, these sorts of excursions give GSP a reason to learn English, and get paid for it.)

The love interest is played by an actress named T.J Storm who (I am guessing here) took the part for less money on the condition that the name of her on-screen character is also .... "Storm." A strange kind of advertising for future roles? Also very easy on the eyes, I hasten to add.

This film is no Warrior or Forbidden Kingdom. It is not going into the annals of MMA film history.

But overall not too bad.
