My number 1 personal favorite the best martial arts tournament film of all time, with Enter the Dragon! The best martial arts movie from Jean-Claude Van Damme he ever did. Enter the Dragon (1973) with Bruce Lee is my second personal favorite best martial arts tournament. Bloodsport and Enter the Dragon were my inspiration on martial arts, how to defend my self against bully's. It was the first Jean-Claude Van Damme movie I watched as a kid that introduced me in to Van Damme movies. I love this film to death, this is type of my movie. I am a huge number 1 Van Damme fan. It is now 30 year anniversary since this movie come out. Bloodsport is in my top 10 Van Damme films. I grew up watching his movies, I talk with my friends about Van Damme and his movies including Bloodsport we mentioned, when I was sick in a hospital, it is really my childhood film. We can all agree Bloodsport is one of Van Damme best films, he ever did and worked on. I heard over YouTube that Hollywood was planning to reboot this film without Van Damme, but that did not work. The film stars: Jean-Claude Van Damme, Donald Gibb, Leah Ayres, Norman Burton, Roy Chiao, Forest Whitaker, Bolo Yeung, Michel Qissi and Philip Chan. Directed was by Newt Arnold. This is one of the best martial arts tournament: Frank Dux (Van Damme) enters the Kumite, an illegal underground martial-arts competition where serious injury and even death are not unknown. In town Hong Kong for the fight are number of fighters, as well as a journalist determined to get her story. Chong Li (Bolo Yeung), a particularly ruthless and vicious fighter is the favorite, but than again Dux has never fought him before. This was really a film in which was based on Frank Dux life but some people claim he lied, but I don't care. He really trained and prepare Van Damme for this film, this was really Van Damme's toughest training he ever had. The fighting styles are for real, every fighter has deadly technique using against his opponent, everything in this movie is done for real. It is bloody, you see Chong Li breaking Suan Paredes (Michel Qissi) leg really bloody gruesome. Van Damme spin kicks with his leg on his opponent in the back head knocking him down wow. I love the back story of Frank Dux from his early childhood, till his military service adult as he goes on his own to Hong Kong to honor his dying martial arts teacher Tanka (Roy Chiao) who trained him. Philip Chan is also in this movie from Hard Boiled who plays again Police Captain in this movie. I really love everything about this film, it is fast paced, entertaining goes fast around I love how they filmed this film. I love the filming locations shots in Hong Kong. I love the music theme from Paul Hertzog. I love the soundtracks in this movie: Fight to Survive and On My Own - Alone by Stan Bush and Steal the Night by Michael Bishop. I love the training sequence in the opening in the movie which some of shots are brutal on Van Damme. I love the ending fight between Dux and Chong Li in which Van Damme uses four spin kicks on Chong Li's head destroying his opponent awesome. One of the best martial arts films of all time. This is my personal favorite number 1 martial arts tournament. Enter the Dragon with Bruce Lee is the second favorite of mine that is my opinion. Donald Gibb as Ray Jackson was excellent who become Frank Dux's best friend. Donald Gibb returned with his character in the sequel. I have this movie on Blu-ray and I also still have the VHS tape at home I bought it in High School I still have it. Bloodsport is my number 1 personal favorite martial arts tournament and one of my favorite Van Damme movies. It is in my top 10 Van Damme films, this is my movie I am number 1 Jean-Claude Van Damme fan I love his movie: Hard Target, Cyborg, Universal Soldier, Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Lionheart, Death Warrant, Double Impact etc...
