Critic Reviews for Kickboxer 2: The Road Back

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Even the cultivated sportsmen who fill the end zones at Raiders games might find this bloody, sadistic display of mayhem beneath their entertainment standards.

Kickboxer 2 is better than Kickboxer, the 1989 Jean-Claude Van Damme vehicle that spawned it. But you have to realize this is a relative judgment, since that first movie... is widely regarded as a cinematic disgrace.

Kickboxer 2 explores much the same territory as its predecessor, although this time there's no Jean-Claude Van Damme, who by the time this sequel was made had moved on to bigger (though not necessarily better) things.

This blood, which seems to change color and texture every time it shows up, keeps coming and coming as if it were a substitute for dialogue. The scenes outside of the ring are even more excruciating.

Kickboxer 2 is laughable fun. It's got cheesy 80's style motivational music (you know the kind that worked for Rocky), over-the-top action sequences and cardboard thin performances - but all in all it's still a good boys boast.

The fact that little is mentioned about Jean Claudes character from the first is the least of Kickboxer 2 problems. I loved Sasha Mitchell in Step by Step as the lovable Uncle Cody but his tough guy persona just doesn't work. Kickboxer 2 is choreographed sloppily and the acting is more comedic than anything. A major letdown from the first.
