Kickboxer (Jean Claude Van Damme) 1989
This movie was made in 1989 on vhs, and is now out on dvd format. The movie was directed by Mark DiSalle and David Worth. And the story line plot, was also written by, Mark DiSalle and Jean Claude Van Damme, who also stars in the main title role in the film as well. Jean Claude Van Damme plays Kurt Sloane who observes that his brother is outmatched in this fight against Tong Po. Kurt Sloane also tried to stop the kickboxing fight by throwing in the towel, but Tong Po would not stop fighting until his brother Eric was critically injured and paralyzed by Tong Po played by Michael Qissi(who is also a childhood friend of Jean Claude Van Damme and starred in several movies with the action star)in a kickboxing tournament in Bangkok, Thailand. Kurt Sloane trains with Xian Chow a famous Thailand kickboxer in Muay Thai and teaches Kurt Sloane how to fight properly in the kickboxing tournament. Not a great film but on the other hand not a bad one either. Definately worth watching. The cast of the movie Kurt Sloane - Jean Claude Van Damme Tong Po - Michael Qissi Eric Sloane - Dennis Alexio (just a brief note there would be four more movies with the title Kickboxer in them)

Van Damme, the best
If you like fighting movie, this is the best Van Damme film of this genre.
The story is not so Original (Van Damme is the brother of an American fighting champion who was hurted in a Far East Tournament. He learn the Muhai Thai to avenge his brother), but is full of action and very spectacular.

Van DAMME I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!!
One of Jean Claude's best. I'm preferential to older, cornier martial arts flicks like this. There's just something special about them. Great moves, and particularly striking cinematography in this film. The "Stone City" would be a great place to see in person. Not an extremely strong storyline or acting presence from Jean Claude, but that's no surprise, it was 1989! If you're wanting a super-deep storyline, then this movie is not for you. All in all a great film in my opinion, especially for someone who just wants to kick back and enjoy some action.
PROBABLY THE BEST JCVD MOVIE I`VE EVER SAW!!!
