It is simply a waste of time.

When you put in an unknown actor who's as dull as ditchwater, you know you're in trouble.

Kickboxer two is not the worst movie in the rather dull series, but it is rather boring with low production values.

The climax is a great fight and the film even if it is low budget is entertaining.

This movie is so so thrilling to watch, it keeps you jumping on your seat.

Van Damme passed on the chance to reprise his role, so we're saddled with the spurious 'missing brother' claim and the resultant film must be one of the most pointless ever made.

Sasha Mitchell stars as David Sloan the brother of Kurt Sloan (Jean-Claude Van Damme) who takes on Tong Po (Michael Qissi) a brutal fighter who was beaten in Bangkok by Kurt, however Tong Po has killed Kurt and now demands a match with David to reclaim his honor in this disappointingly dull sequel which takes itself far too seriously.

He's really boring and can't act.

The first hour of the film is boring and the action sequences are few and far between; even they are mishandled.

This is a completely formulaic picture, so we spend much time discovering how kind and mild is our hero.

I highly recommend it.

Xian puts David through and intense work out.

Spittle and blood fly during their evocative scenes.

Being a series of action movies which had its start back in the 1980s, it has what these movies usually have - retro exciting music, body slams, blows in the face, pounds to the stomach, showing what being an American can really be - everything like this makes this sequel to the first "Kickboxer" terrific!

however, if found the plot to be lame and uninteresting.

Mitchell, playing Van Damme's brother, ends up fighting Tong Po in a severe re-match, but before then there's lots of boring stuff about 'doing what's right', following one's path and all that nonsense.
