Kickboxer Retaliation is a sequel to 2016’s Kickboxer Vengeance, with MMA champ Kurt Sloane (Alain Moussi) now imprisoned in Thailand by a crime lord (Highlander’s Christopher Lambert).
To gain freedom as well as save his wife, Sloane must beat a ruthless, 400lb warrior (Game of Thrones’ Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson) in a death match.
The interesting aspect of the franchise was it started with Jean-Claude Van Damme but it was eventually rebooted with Kickboxer Vengeance. Van Damme starred in that film as Master Durand, and he’s back once again to mentor Kurt Sloane in the latest installment. The trailer promises a ton of action and features a funny line from co-star Mike Tyson (“You interrupted my meditation”).
