2012 Movie #87 - Bloodsport (1988)
Flipping through channels last night, I noticed that BLOODSPORT had just started. So of course I had to watch the whole thing. I haven’t seen the film for probably a decade, and it’s fascinating seeing what holds up. On the whole, the fights were much less polished than I remembered, but still a lot of fun. They manage to give secondary characters a lot of life just by differentiating their fighting styles. On the other hand, the emotional scenes are embarrassingly bad. The moments of JCVD by himself doing bizarre split-leg meditations (as seen above) are pretty incredible.
