I like this film I always liked this film with Sasha Mitchell because it is an action sports tournament movie. It was far improvement over the last badly film Kickboxer 3: The Art of War it wasn't melodramatic like was the second film, it was a martial arts film I have so much to talk about this film. It is my childhood film I watch it so many times in my childhood till high school till even now. The first Kickboxer (1989) with Jean-Claude Van Damme is my favorite Van Damme film it is a classic and the best one martial arts films. This in my opinion it is a worthy follow to the first one it isn't dramatic like was the second one this film is different from the last two movies and that a good one. It is a good stylish action sport film of the 90's in my opinion.
Why in my opinion this movie is good: we see the flashbacks from the first movie in which Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dennis Alexio appeared as the real Kurt and Eric not an other actors who imitate both of the brothers in sequel Kickboxer 2: The Road Back. I love the cast in this film I love that is shot in New Mexico in which the story is set and I mostly I love it is a mixed martial arts tournament.
The movie was beautifully entirely shot in New Mexico in which the story takes place. The prions scenes was entirely shoot in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in Penitentiary of New Mexico in which the real cell inmates were in those scenes and they worked extra to help making this movie. In which Sasha Mitchell is in prison he is with real cell inmates not actors. In the street fight in which Sasha Mitchell is fighting and shows his martial arts Muay Thai skills fighting two opponents you see a lot of motorcycle gangs and you see Sasha Mitchell driving with another motor biker and in a roadside bar when Sasha stops you see another bikers those were a real bikers called Hells Angels they worked also as an extra and they helped by making this movie. There is no wire, no fake, no shaky cam all real actions and real fights. The fight scenes are unbelievable and realistic most of the film is realistic and I though it is a good movie. For the fight scenes the choreographer was excellent and all fights were for real. How all I know that? It is because I read the description in VHS cover 14 years ago.
We have a wonderful cast in here: Sasha Mitchell returns the third time as David Sloan. Actress Michele 'Mouse' Krasnoo is in this film she is a weapons expert, a 2nd-degree black belt in Tang Soo Do, and a retired competitive-karate champion I liked her in this movie. This movie also has Thom Mathews my all time favorite actor who played Tommy Jarvis in Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives in here he is Bill the bad guy and the second hand of Tong Po (Kamel Krifia), he is so beautiful in this movie. Director Albert Pyun returns for the second movie to do another Kickboxer movie and the last one.
Great music score music from Anthony Riparetti that I really like and the action and fights are real and really insane.
Sasha Mitchell does all his stunts by him self you can see there is no stunt double for Sasha Mitchell that's great. David Sloan kicks the sh** out of Tong Po!
The movie isn't perfect it also has problems: so the problems and flaws: Kamel Krifia is not believable enough as Tong Po and I was also disappointed at the end by the movie the fight between Tong Po and David Sloan on the end on the table you can see that is not Kamel Krifia it is his stunt double doing his work. Michel Qissi should return in this movie and he should do his stunts like he did in the first two Kickboxer films in that I was disappointed. Why is suddenly David Sloan married? It makes no sense to me because in the last 2 Kickboxer movies he wasn't married and he didn't had a girlfriend at all it makes no sense to me. Deborah Mansy as Vicky wasn't that beautiful enough I would get a better actress and more beautiful actress to play David's wife. I also I wish David's wife wouldn't be in this movie at all she should be cut.
David Sloan must travel to Mexico to save his wife from a savage drug lord who's also an old nemesis.
Kickboxer 4: The Aggressor is my second favorite movie in the series and in the Kikcboxer franchise. I still wish I would had this movie on DVD for the collection because on Blu-ray wasn't released. The score get's C- 6/10.
Kickboxer 4: The Aggressor is a 1994 direct-to-video release martial-arts film directed by Albert Pyun. The film is the fourth entry in the Kickboxer series. This was the last film to star Sasha Mitchell, who reprises his role as David Sloan.
