Kickboxing movies about kickboxing suck (see American Kickboxer). Kickboxing movies where one of our heroes grabs a guy’s nose, calls him a dickface, and then bonks him in the head, on the other hand, are awesome.

Just so my head doesn’t implode on itself, I’m going to assume that director/writer Jenö Hodi was fully aware that he was making a bad action movie during the production of American Kickboxer 2. With Dale “Apollo” Cook, who is one of the worst actors from the “fighters become actors” era, as the star, a miniscule budget, and a wacky script, I refuse to believe that Hodi thought he was making quality cinema.

Even if he was, the end result is the same. American Kickboxer 2, which tells the revolutionary tale of a renegade cop (Cook) and a Karate instructor (Lurie) banding together to argue about a woman and track down a girl that one of them is the father of, is fantastic. It’s on that same campy level as Deathstalker II, where any fan of b-films will find it difficult to hate American Kickboxer 2 if they go into with the right mindset.
The number of laughable scenes far outweighs the boring ones, and despite the logical fallacies, everything comes together in the end. You have to watch this one if you like bad action movies, and if you don’t, this just might turn you.

DVD: Barebones.
