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.
Eric and Kurt Sloane are the descendants of a well-known Venice, California-based family of martial artists. Kurt has always been in older brother, Eric's shadow, as he lacks the instincts needed to become a champion. Against Kurt's concerns, Eric accepts a paid offer and travels to Thailand to challenge the Muay Thai champion Tong Po and fails with dire consequences. Kurt sets out for revenge. He trains with his brother's mentor, Durand, for a Muay Thai fight against the merciless champion, Tong Po. Durand first thinks Kurt is impossible to train, but through a series of spiritual exercises and tests, Durand discovers that Kurt has a deeper strength that will carry him through his final showdown with Tong Po.
