Mike Tyson and Jean-Claude Van Damme Train a Fighter to Battle a Beast in KICKBOXER: RETALIATION Trailer
"The strongest man doesn't always win, but the smartest one does."
The first trailer has been released for Kickboxer: Retaliation, which is a sequel to Kickboxer: Vengeance. If you enjoy these kinds of low-budget action films, this one actually looks like it might be worth checking out. If you don't enjoy these kinds of movies, then it's probably not going to look very good to you. It features Mike Tyson and Jean-Claude Van Damme training a fighter, who is forced to battle a 6'8" 400 lbs monster. Here's the synopsis:
One year after the events of Kickboxer: Vengeance, Kurt Sloan has vowed never to return to Thailand. However, while gearing up for a MMA title shot, he finds himself sedated and forced back into Thailand, this time in prison. He is there because the ones responsible want him to face a 6'8" 400 lbs. beast named Mongkut and in return for the fight, Kurt will get two million dollars and his freedom back. Kurt at first refuses, in which a bounty is placed on his head as a way to force him to face Mongkut. Kurt soon learns he will have no other choice and will undergo his most rigorous training yet under some unexpected mentors in order to face Mongkut in hopes to regain his freedom.
The movie also stars Alain Moussi, Christopher Lambert, Sara Malakul Lane, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, and Sam Medina.
Kickboxer: Retaliation was written and directed by Dimitri Logothetis (Pretty Smart, Slaughterhouse Rock, The Closer, Body Shot, Hungry for You, Cheyenne, The Lost Angel). Go USA will release Kickboxer: Retaliation in theaters starting January 26th, 2018.
