Kickboxer 5: The Redemption
Payback can be deadly.
Kickboxing champion Matt Reeves witnesses the murder of his friend Johnny. While investigating the crime, he learns that a Mr. Negaal in South Africa has founded a new kickboxing association and does not leave international champions much of a chance. Johnny had to pay with his life when he did not want to join. Neegal seems to kill everybody who is in his way especially David Sloan from the previous Kickboxer films. Matt is on his own now, but suddenly finds an unexpected ally.
So Sloan of the previous 3 sequels is now apparently dead. It could also be that Sasha Mitchell was arrested the same year this film was made for domestic abuse but maybe that's just a coincidence. Anyway, as far as the film goes it's nothing special. Mark Dacascos plays a kickboxer out to avenge his friends death which ultimately brings him to South Africa. I do have to say that the martial arts in this film are much better than anything given in the other sequels so maybe for that reason it could get a slight edge over the others. Of course it's still not a very good movie but is fine as throwaway entertainment. - Adam
