Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
This early effort by Jean-Claude Van Damme sparked an entire series of sequels and remains one of the "Muscles from Brussels"' most recognized slices of martial arts madness. The young international action star dishes out repeated slow-motion kicks to the face like a pro while offering up his goofy charm with many hastily pronounced bits of dialogue genius, making Kickboxer a highly digestible man-movie spectacular primed for mid-day cable programming and video racks everywhere. Also of interest is the strange patriotic undertone that pops up most randomly with shots of a bald eagle edited in for no reason at all while constant reminders of Van Damme's American citizenry are shoved in the audience's face time and again. Besides the sweaty fights, the best thing that Kickboxer has to offer has to be the moment where Van Damme gets down with not one but two young maidens in a butt-shakin' dance scene made infamous by viral videos spread throughout the Internet some 16 years later.
