KICKBOXER: VENGEANCE ON DVD, BLU-RAY & DIGITAL
No rules. No ref. And thechance to be rememberedfor a lifetime
Fast Sell:Revenge is the name of the game, as martial arts legend Jean-Claude Van Damme and Guardians of the Galaxy and Spectre superstar Dave Bautista team up for the ultimate tag teamsmackdown in this bone-crunching action spectacular.
Synopsis:After witnessing his brother being killed in the ring in a brutalbout in Thailand, young kickboxer Kurt decides to train underthe tutelage of his brother’s legendary, no-nonsense coachDurand, in order to take-on Tong Po, the man responsible forhis brother’s death.
Durand doesn’t feel Kurt has what it takes to defeat theawesome strength of Tong Po. But Durand doesn’t reckon onKurt’s powerful and unquenchable thirst for vengeance.We like it because:In 1989 the legendary Jean-Claude Van Damme starred in theoriginal Kickboxer.
Now he’s back in this reworking of thatclassic fi lm, and, in his Fifties, is still in as good a shape as hisyounger counterparts.A martial arts movie line-up doesn’t get much better than this. Aside from JCVD, there is also Guardians of the Galaxy and Spectre star Dave Bautista, fast becoming the big screen’s next Dwayne Johnson, and, in the lead role, Hollywoodstunt performer Alain Moussi; three time UFC champion Georges St-Pierre; as well as Fast & Furious 6’s Gina Carano.
Combined, they make KICKBOXER: VENGEANCE a must-see for action movie fans. Chock full of insane fight scenes, culminating in a superb showdown between Moussi and Bautista, intense(and occasionally humorous) martial arts training sequences at the hands of JCVD, exotic locales, and kept at athundering pace with the relentless revenge plot, KICKBOXER: VENGEANCE is a no-holds barred-slice of slambang cinema directed with explosive flair by John Stockwell.Veteran chop-socky star JCVD, in shades and fedora, and Moussi (in his first lead role) are perfect in the roles ofteacher and student, and Bautista flexes his formidable big screen chops as the villainous, seemingly unstoppableTong Po.
This is bone snapping, knuckle smashing action cinema at its best, combining a top quality cast with breathtakingstuntwork to provide a knockout entertainment.
