Review by Chucky
Even though I had low expectations for this sequel I was quite worried when I saw the opening credits were reminiscent of something you'd see from a television series rather than a feature full-length movie.

Alain Moussi may be an impressive martial artist and probably does well with the ladies, but his on-screen charisma is lacking. He tries his best but there's nothing about him that really separates himself from any other direct-to-video action star out there. The fight scenes throughout the movie are okay but don't really offer anything we haven't seen before. The choice of music played in some of the scenes is also questionable... I don't necessarily want to hear the blues being played while people are getting their ass kicked and having Matrix-style slow motion added to the mix doesn't help.

The end fight scene is actually pretty decent and is quite brutal. I'd say that fight scene is probably better than any of the other fight scenes in Kickboxer: Vengeance and it's quite a long fight as it lasts for about 20 minutes, but until you get there it feels like the movie is just going through the motions with pointless plot turns. Just when it feels like the movie is getting better a shitty scene is thrown in to check you back into reality. For example, an unimpressive green-screened chase sequence on top of a moving train.

Whatever you thought of Kickboxer: Vengeance is likely to be more or less what you'll think of this sequel. It's not a bad movie, but it's just more of the same with some new characters thrown into the mix.
