Brother, you had me laughing until I snorted. GREAT review. Dynamite. One of the best I've seen.

This made a very compelling story but it's a shame Dux lied about the whole thing. You ever see the sequels?

Yes I saw the first sequel but don't care to see the rest. The fighting choreography was terrible compared to the original Bloodsport. The fight scenes flowed in the original because the competitors were all real fighters. And the kick a$$ '80s pop-synth music only made it better.

What you said about Chung Li looking like a lost squirrel was definitely true!

You made me realize some things I missed. The sumo, Paco, Chong Li and Dux were the best in the Kumite. You’re right..when Dux beat Paco and the sumo, Chung Li had a look of fear on his face. I don’t think he expected to lose to Dux but came prepare with that pill.

Jackson, Jackson, Jackson. You had Chong Li knocked out. Why the hell didn’t you win the fight then celebrate AFTER??

I saw this when you posted it on Facebook. I haven't seen this movie in years but my grandfather and my brother used to watch it all the time.

I always liked Ray Jackson. I think he was the heart of the movie. When he got stomped out by Chong Li, that was the emotional hook of the movie and it really made you want to see Frank Dux get revenge for him.

Ray was my favorite character but my favorite fighter in the kumite was the sumo.



I need to watch this again. I was always a tomboy and the other girls didn't know what I saw in this movie. lol.

I read this movie was the inspiration for Mortal Kombat.

Chong Li had a quiet respect for Frank at first but it turned into stone cold fear when he knocked out Paco and the sumo dude. AJ I didn't realize it until reading your review but Chong Li killing that wimp was a way to intimidate Frank.

"YOU ARE NEX!!"

AJ, damn good point about the monkey fighter. I think there were only maybe three black men in the kumite? And the most prominent one fought like a monkey. He was really good, but that was a terrible decision both for the fighter himself and the film producers.

I heard that too. But based on the fighting styles here I think it more closely resembles Street Fighter.  

Michel Qissi played the fighter who got his shin shattered by Chong Li. He also played the villain in Kickboxer.

You know what's funny? I used to ask myself who would win between Chong Li and Tong Po. Well we know the answer because we got that match in Bloodsport!
Chong Li didn't just beat Tong Po but he broke his shin.
