Bloodsport (1988)

Starring:  Jean-Claude Van Damme, Donald Gibb, Leah Ayres

Directed By:  Newt Arnold

Link to Trailer:  [youtube]

The Plot:  Frank Dux has entered the “kumite”, an illegal underground martial-arts competition where serious injury and even death are not unknown. In town for the fight are a number of fighters (all with different styles), as well as a journalist determined to get her story. Chong Li, a particularly ruthless and vicious fighter is the favourite, but then again Dux has never fought him before.

Comments:  If Jean-Claude Van Damme had only made this and ‘Kickboxer’, his greatness would be unquestioned. Thankfully, he also made ‘TimeCop’, ‘Lionheart’, and ‘Hard Target’. I’ve seen this many times, and it’s still good.
