Kickboxer: Retaliation Trailer

kickboxerretaliation

The recently rebooted Kickboxer franchise seems to be following in the footsteps of the revived Universal Soldier series, aiming primarily at a home audience and providing Jean-Claude Van Damme fans and action junkies with just enough reason to care about new entries. Kickboxer: Retaliation is the sequel to 2016’s Kickboxer: Vengeance and it finds MMA champ Kurt Sloane (Alain Moussi) being kidnapped and brought back to Thailand for another fight, this time with a beast of a man known as Mongkut (Game of Thrones‘ Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson). With a supporting cast that also includes Christopher Lambert, Mike Tyson, JCVD and several real-life MMA fighters, it’s hard not to be at least a little bit curious. Directed by Dimitri Logothetis (Wings of the Dragon), Kickboxer: Retaliation hits select theatres and VOD on Jan. 26th. Check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
