Who would have thought that the reboot of Kickboxer would’ve been kind of good? The fact that this new one, the sequel, was fast-tracked, probably was a good indicator that the first one is good too (it is). And that’s just not common for remakes.
Now, you can check out UK trailer for Retaliation below. Also note the artwork for a box set for the new series.
Synopsis: It has now been 12 months since Kurt Sloan left Thailand vowing never to return. The story picks up in a crowded sports arena with cheering fans where Kurt is now in a new battle – a title bout for the MMA World Championship when Kurt is lured back to Bangkok, Thailand.
Kurt soon learns that in order to be allowed to leave Thailand he needs to fight a new formidable foe named Mongkut, who is a beast of a man, standing at 6’8″ and weighing in around 400 lbs of solid muscle.
Kurt does not fully comprehend the challenge he has ahead of him until he encounters the pure size and strength of the man named Mongkut. Through much pain and pure determination, Kurt is put through some of the most enduring training he has ever experienced to prepare him for the fight for his life.
Oh and there’s a third movie on the way, Kickboxer: Armageddon.
