Eh, it's a competent enough reboot, and it even excises some of the less-palatable elements of the original, too bad it couldn't muster up much of a personality. At least it saves the goofy dance tribute for the end credits, where it serves as a welcome surprise bit of fun rather than obnoxious, distracting fan service. Definitely needed a more interesting lead, but Van Damme and Bautista make up for whats-his-face's general lack of charisma. Also, it's cool she's broadening her acting range, but if you're gonna put Gina Carano in a Kickboxer movie and she doesn't fight, people (me) will leave a little disappointed.
