This week we watched the "exciting" remake to the "classic" original "Kickboxer Vengeance". When his brother is killed in the ring by the brutal and ruthless Thai martial artist Tong Po, fighter Kurt Sloane vows revenge. Motivated by "Vengeance" Sloane finds the laziest trainer ever (who consequently failed in training his brother) in order to exact his retribution. With some decently coreographed fight scenes you could certainly pick a worse action film but there is literally nothing to distinguish this movie from a sea of other equally generic action fare. The good news is with almost no story to speak of it is virtually impossible for us to spoil the 90 minute training montage that is "Kickboxer Vengeance".
