Best Van Damme movie. Great fighting movie too.
The first 20 minutes are slow and a bit confusing, but if you get past that, it's a really fun movie. Cheesy 80s martial arts at its finest!
Good martial arts tournament movie, but don’t believe for a second that it actually happened
A fun 80’s marital arts movie. Action is decent but it is a bit cheesy and the writing a little confusing.
The breakout Van Damme classic. Just lots of fighting and little plot. Kumite! Kumite! Kumite!
This movie is pretty bad. But, it is all the right types of bad. Mountains of cheese. Loads of cringe-inducing dialog. Prime JCVD.
Classic martial arts film featuring a charismatic VanDamme as the hero and a menacing Bolo Yeung as the main villain. Great fight sequences
If Rocky knew martial arts, this is what this movie is…..
By far Van Damme’s best movie. Menacing villain and interesting, if not stereotypical, other fighters make for a fun watch.
JCVD at the height of his prowess. Fun fact: Mortal Kombat was originally going to be a Bloodsport video game.
