Bloodsport takes you where few have ever gone - inside the hidden Hong Kong arena where elite combatants clash in the Kumite, the little-known but hotly contested world championship of full-contact fighting. No Westerner had ever won this titanic tournament until iron-willed American Frank Dux. Bloodsport is his story, a true-life triumph of bedrock courage, uncanny skill and steadfast loyalty. As Dux, Jean-Claude Van Damme also enjoyed a true-life triumph. This role kickboxed his career as a box-office favorite into overdrive. Van Damme has dazzled audiences ever since, playing heroes who simply refused to lose. And when Van Damme steps onto the mat, Bloodsport isn't just a sport. It's a war!
At the time of writing this had a four and a half star rating. I cannot believe it. This film is dreadful. The acting is worse than a secondary school play. The action sequences are so ponderous as to be pathetic. the plot could be written on a stamp. The good reviews must have been by admirers of Jean-Claude's undoubtedly muscular physique. Do not bother otherwise.
