    Kickboxer

    I can never remember which one I saw first and Kickboxer was never a sequel to Bloodsport; but there’s much owing to Jean-Claude Van Damme’s major breakthrough of the previous year. Bloodsport basically paved the way for a string of martial art movies with this one being the more successful, spawning into it’s own franchise.
