Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
This Van Damme-less sequel is most widely known due to the involvement of Batman Begins scribe David S. Goyer, which is funny, since it's his laborious script that is the main downfall of this neutered sequel. With the first fight clocking in at almost the 30-minute mark, Kickboxer 2: The Road Back is filled with a whole lot of story and not enough foot-to-the-face action. This time, the lead role went to Sasha Mitchell, who would not only go on to star in the following two installments, but also came into a bit of TV fame with the Suzanne Somers show Step By Step. Sadly, it took Sasha this whole flick to find his footing, with his bootleg Keanu Reeves delivery never quite gelling into the corny charm that he nailed in later pictures. If anything, the sequel demands some sort of respect for the fact that it even bothered to carry over continuity from the first film, though it's best enjoyed for the multiple montages set to manly action tunes that populate much of the film.
