Pros- JCVD was pretty funny and even though the plot was missing logical stepping points he pretended it was a high budget film
Bautista- Huge dude and decent actor, seemed almost menacing.
GSP is awesome, he even acted pretty good for a real martial artist, pretty funny.
free time capsule from 1985
Cons-free time capsule from 1985
Verdict, worth watching realizing it is just fun not a hard core action karate film
So you're probably asking how JCVD is in the film, he is to most people the only reason to watch the film after all, well, he's...there, he's just there, not giving a crap, in fact no one gave a crap when making this film, I mean I don't blame them, it's a direct to video remake of an 80's B movie, but was it really THAT hard to do it well? Not even the team handed the task of putting subtitles in the film could do their job, who in the hell thought it was the best decision to make the subtitles of the film in all caps?
What's most laughable is the dubbing job they did with JCVD...yes, they dubbed JCVD with another person's voice, it's so hard to not notice it, as I said it's laughable. Even if you're a fan of the original, definitely don't waste your time with this film, it's not even better than the sequels.
The movie follows a similar flow as the remake. Brother struggle, and trains to defeat Tong Po whom killed his brother in a fight. The movie is full of mediocre acting like the original. The end fight scene was well made, and really makes the movie. I watched it for the fight scenes, not the acting or even the sexy Thai cop woman.
If you're into a fight movie, and expect little else; Kickboxer is for you.
