This follow up to last year’s sensational Kickboxer: Vengeance sees Alain Moussi and Jean-Claude Van Damme teamed up again as Kurt Sloan and mentor Durand – this time, with Sloan facing down one of the screen’s biggest and most brutal villains, in the shape of underground champion Mongkut, played by the incredible Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, famous as unstoppable ‘The Mountain’ Gregor Clegane in Game of Thrones.
Hollywood stunt performer Alain Moussi, flexing his acting chops as well as his muscles, and original Kickboxer star Van Damme make a great pairing as the hotheaded novice and the wise veteran. The A-grade cast also includes Highlander’s Christopher Lambert, on brilliant form here as the villainous Thomas Moore, forcing Sloan to fight against his wishes; as well as boxing legend and Hangover star Mike Tyson, who is drafted in to get Sloan ready for the mother of all bouts.
With exotic Thailand locations, fiery fight scenes and some stupendous stunt-work, KICKBOXER: RETALIATION is a no- holds barred-slice of slam bang cinema. With a finale that will make your eyes water, this is a blistering blast of mixed martial arts mayhem that hits the viewer right between the eyes.
The film is also available in a brilliantly bone-crunching box set paired up with KICKBOXER: VENGEANCE, which sees Jean-Claude Van Damme training up Alain Moussi for a killer bout against Guardians of the Galaxy and Spectre star Dave Bautista.
