Kickboxer: Blu-Ray Review –

We analyze in Cinemascomics the pack of Kickboxer, which includes Blu-ray + DVD + Booklet, being Jean-Claude Van Damme’s most beloved film

At Cinemascomics we have analyzed the domestic edition of the Kickboxer Blu-ray + DVD + Booklet pack. This film marked the consecration of Jean-Claude Van Damme (The Last Mercenary) as an action movie star.

The film was released in theaters in 1989, being directed by Mark DiSalle (Perfect Weapon) and David Worth (The Shadow of the Murderer) and written by Glenn Bruce, from an original idea by the lead actor himself. In addition to the Belgian actor, the cast includes Dennis Alexio (Operation Vengeance), Michel Qissi (Bloody Contact), Dennis Chan (The Man with the Iron Fists) and Rochelle Ashana (The A-Team).

The tape has been reissued on Blu-ray, available at all points of sale while stocks last, being distributed in Spain in physical format by Selecta Visión, and is also available for rent and digital sale, through the main platforms operating in Spain. Although the action film star did not appear in the four sequels starring Sasha Mitchell and Mark Dacascos (between 1991 and 1995), he did decide to return to the saga with Kickboxer: Vengeance (2016) and Kickboxer: Counterattack (2018) ), now starring Alain Moussi (Jiu Jitsu).

The movie

Kurt Sloan (Jean-Claude Van Damme) accompanies his brother Eric (Dennis Alexio) to Thailand, to defend his title as American Kickboxing Champion in all his competitions. In a fight, Kurt witnesses how the Thai champion Tong Po (Michel Qissi) paralyzes his brother, when he is already beaten. Faced with this unnecessary attack, Kurt decides to take revenge, but for this he will have to train very hard, since Tong Po is considered a terrible and cruel adversary who has never lost a single fight. With the help of an old kickboxing master who lives isolated in the jungle, Kurt will undergo rigorous and harsh training to prepare for the fight of his life.

Kickboxer It is not recommended for children under 18 years of age and lasts for 103 minutes; showing itself in its Blu-Ray version with a very careful design, which will be the object of collection for the great lovers of the seventh art, within the seal of the Spanish publishing house called “Home Video Collectors”, and that we have analyzed for the readers of Cinemascomics .
