"The King of the Kickboxers" ranks high among the forgotten gems of B-movie martial arts cinema. If you're into this kind of movie, then you can't go long among like-minded viewers without hearing other films compared to it, and for good reason: as the unofficial fourth installment of the No Retreat, No Surrender series, the film serves as the professional pinnacle for director Lucas Lowe and the choice vehicle for star Loren Avedon, not to mention supplying the single best fight scene for bad guy Billy Blanks. Yes, it's corny, poorly-acted, and features production values that would've had producer Ng See Yuen thrown out of Hollywood, but it's so darn good at what kind of movie it is that it can't help but be appreciated.

The story: Jake Donahue (Avedon) was a young man when he saw his brother murdered at the hands of the jealous and ruthless fighter Khan (Blanks). Now an undercover policeman, Jake travels to Thailand to expose a deadly production ring of snuff films starring the sadistic Khan, but is quick to find that he's no physical match for the killer. He seeks out a drunk hermit (Keith Cooke, Mortal Kombat) - the only man who ever came close to beating Khan - and hopes to learn the skills to avenge the death of his brother.

If there's anything that "King" does wrong, it's underutilizing some of its rather impressive cast: in addition to Avedon, Blanks, and Cooke, we've got Ong Soo Han (

This is one of those "so bad they are good" movies. Not quite as good as the classic "No Retreat No Surrender" (although the style of the movie is very similar), its still good enough to be enjoyed.

Loren Avedon I must say is very unique in all his martial arts films. I can never decide if I really enjoy his presence or despise it. His acting is rather lousy, but to the point its almost fun. He tries to be funny, and it sometimes ends up being so just for trying. As for fighitng, he actually is very athletic in his earlier films, and this is no exception. Loren Avedon plays a cop named Jake, who is assigned to Thailand to investigate the murders involved with film making. When he is put off the case, he insists on going when he learns the man who may be resposible for the deaths is the same guy who killed his older brother many years ago after a tournament in Thailand. The killer is named Khan, played by Billy Blanks.

As bad as Billy can be in some of his films, I'd say he does a better job as a villain. He's actually pretty scary in this film, and looks bigger than ever. In hopes to defeat him, Jake trains with a famous warrior, the only one who has come close to beating Khan. The training scenes are fun and entertaining. It seems that at least every martial arts film comes up with some original training ideas, and King of the Kickboxers follows the tradition well.

I was pleased to see there was plenty of fighting in the film. I am not sure who the choreographer is, but it seems to be set in the style of Corey Yuen. The fights remind me a lot of those in Bloodmoon, Superfights, and No Retreat No Surrender series. The final fight with Loren Avedon & Billy Blanks is somehwat original, set in an outdoor dome used as a movie set.
