The pre-sales trailer for Kickboxer: Retaliation leaked online a few weeks back and was rapidly removed but by then we had an idea of what to expect from the movie. Face punching and ass-kicking galore with JCVD stating that he “hates violence”. I think I’m more interested in this movie that I was for the first one because it’s not a remake so it doesn’t have the same kind of pressure to deliver.
Anyway, the movie is slated to be released this September according to the official Facebook page.
PLOT: One year after the events of “Kickboxer: Vengeance”, Kurt Sloan has vowed never to return to Thailand. However, while gearing up for a MMA title shot, he finds himself sedated and forced back into Thailand, this time in prison. He is there because the ones responsible want him to face a 6’8″ 400 lbs. beast named Mongkut and in return for the fight, Kurt will get two million dollars and his freedom back. Kurt at first refuses, in which a bounty is placed on his head as a way to force him to face Mongkut. Kurt soon learns he will have no other choice and will undergo his most rigorous training yet under some unexpected mentors in order to face Mongkut in hopes to regain his freedom.
