I have to admit that part of me wants to be somewhat forgiving towards "Kickboxer 5" for at least being an awful action movie, instead of an awful character drama (like "Kickboxer 2"). But here's the thing. While "Kickboxer 2" may have failed in the areas that mattered, at least it wasn't a disaster in every aspect of film-making. "Kickboxer 5" fails on ALL levels. It says something when the highlight of your film is Mark Dacascos calling the villain a 'butt face'.
