Jean-Claude Van Damme,
Sasha Mitchell ("Kickboxer 2&3") triumphantly returns to the ring as David Sloan, fighting not just for his survival, but for his beautiful wife, who has become the sexual captive of the despicable world champion, Tong Po. Framed, forgotten and furious, Sloan has been wasting away in prison, but the Feds agree to release him if he will get inside Tong Po's impenetrable Mexican fortress, protected by its deadly guards and adorned by its sexual slaves. Sloan has no choice but to enter into Po's tournament of champions, a savage battle where winner takes all - and to Sloan - that means everything! Reluctantly, alliances form with a few others to help him out.Written by

The US print was cut by around 30 secs to receive an R-rating and missed shots of a man's head being beaten against the ground, David's fight with 2 guards on a staircase, and most of the sexual footage and shots of the topless girls during the threesome sex scene. The Artisan DVD features the R-rated print, although the UK Film 2000 and Australian Hollywood DVD releases are the full version. See more »
In Sasha Mitchell's final series appearance, Kickboxer 4 emerges as the most enjoyable sequel due to it's sheer ridiculousness which make this prime guilty pleasure material for fans of this kind of thing. I myself remember this entry quite well, I remember seeing this on the USA channel some night back in 1995. At the time USA was running an "Up all night" program which played cornball movies (Not unlike this one) and featured a nasal voiced blonde bimbo delivering her would be observations on the world. So naturally the audience knew what they were in for. Now 11 years later (After I bought the 5 pack)Kickboxer 4 is easily the most blissfully stupid of the series which I for one appreciate. The biggest problems with # 2 and # 3 were that they A)took themselves seriously B)Had little kickboxing. Kickboxer 4 comes through in spades in the fight department. There is so much karate chopping and brutal action that I couldn't help but smile. Aside from that though, Kickboxer 4 spins it's stupid plot with a a deadly serious tone which of course makes the ridiculousness even more apparent and therefore adds to the fun factor. Plus Kickboxer 4 is one of the most surreal movies i've ever seen.
* *1/2 out of 4-(Pretty good)
