RYAN LUNDGREN'S REVIEW: An above average kick 'em up. I have seen a lot of martial arts movies in my day but I must say none have had the depth Bloodsport has. It's like you're in the crowd cheering for Van Damme, who is appalling here. Among the cast include Bolo Yueng, Forrest Whittiker and Donald Gibb who provide good back up for Van Damme. This is good martial arts film that will, no doubt, be remembered along with Enter The Dragon. Bloodsport ties Universal Soldier for Van Damme's Best.
RYAN LUNDGREN'S RATING: 7/10
