A black belt himself, director/writer Dimitri Logothetis helmed last year’s international hit KICKBOXER: VENGEANCE, which Variety hailed in its review as “well-crafted good fun – and good proof that you don’t need more than two hours or $100 million to give ticket buyers their money’s worth in popcorn thrills.”
Featuring unedited long takes, Dimitri captures real martial artists, not CGI special effects or heavily edited stuntman. KICKBOXER: RETALIATION continues the story of ‘Kurt Sloane’ 12 months after he avenged his brother’s death.
Vowing to never return to Thailand after the events that happened the year before, the film picks up in a crowded sports arena with cheering fans where Kurt is now in a new battle – a title bout for the MMA World Championship when ‘Kurt Sloane’ is lured back to Bangkok, Thailand.
Now back in the underworld of no holds barred fighting matches to the death, ‘Kurt’ must endure new forms of training and be ready to fight for his life once again.
