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...
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.
