Total and utter garbage

The original Kickboxer is one of the best classical fighting movies of all time, this on the other hand is a disgrace. I was really looking forward to seeing this, with the likes of Van Damme and Dave Batista.

The film starts out actually very well, with some good fight scenes, however as the film progresses, it becomes a complete mess. With dreadful dialogue. There were many scenes, mainly which included any romance, were poorly acted, written and executed. They were unbearably cheesy. The directing in this movie is also bad, with a lot of shaky cam, and over the top scenes. One of the worst parts of this movie, is by far the fight scene which involved elephants. Not only was the CGI on them the worst in history of a film released after 2000, but the scene seemed forced and unnecessary.

Like most martial arts film, this film sufferers from, good looks. They cast the most attractive actor/actress they can find, who can't act worth a damn, and throw them into a film. The original film had great characters, these are cardboard cutouts.

There are only two things this film has going for it, one of them in the cinematography. Mateo Londono the person behind this, is way out of this film's league, his shots are beautiful, with some stunning lighting effects and unique angles.

The other is obviously Van Damme, he is very good here, maybe a little too good. Van has never been the best actor, but he outshines everyone here, which says something. However his character was not that great. In the original, the Master was a quiet, well mannered, wise and powerful teacher, Van Damme he is none of those. Yes he has some kickass fight scenes, but when he is mentoring, he has none of the wisdom the previous one had.

This film is gunk, and I would suggest no person to watch this, unless you are drunk and out of your 'Damme' mind. It is a poorly shot, acted, written and executed mess, with dreadful dialogue, poor characters, awful editing and horrific CGI.

2.1/10

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...
