Even the cultivated sportsmen who fill the end zones at Raiders games might find this bloody, sadistic display of mayhem beneath their entertainment standards.

TV Guide

This blood, which seems to change color and texture every time it shows up, keeps coming and coming as if it were a substitute for dialogue. The scenes outside of the ring are even more excruciating.

Kickboxer 2 is better than Kickboxer, the 1989 Jean-Claude Van Damme vehicle that spawned it. But you have to realize this is a relative judgment, since that first movie... is widely regarded as a cinematic disgrace.

Kickboxer 2 is laughable fun. It's got cheesy 80's style motivational music (you know the kind that worked for Rocky), over-the-top action sequences and cardboard thin performances - but all in all it's still a good boys boast.

Kickboxer 2 explores much the same territory as its predecessor, although this time there's no Jean-Claude Van Damme, who by the time this sequel was made had moved on to bigger (though not necessarily better) things.
