Bloodmatch (1991)

Bloodmatch is written by K. Hannah and directed by Albert Pyun and follows Brick Bardo (Thom Mathews) who is out to avenge the death of his brother, who was set up in a scandal involving illegal fight fixing in a kickboxing circuit and was killed before he could expose the true culprits.

Along with Max (Marianne Taylor), he manages to track down four former fighters who were involved in the scandal and had sufficient motive to want his brother dead: janitor and father, Billy Munoz (Benny “The Jet” Urquidez); Connie Angel (Hope Marie Carlton); arrogant and brash Brent Caldwell (Dale Jacoby); and powerhouse, Mike Johnson (Thunderwolf).

Bardo has them drugged, kidnapped and brought to an empty fighting arena where he plans to fight them all to the death in front of each other until either one of them kills him or one of them is revealed as his brother’s murderer.

As Bardo engages each of them in one on one combat, it becomes clear that not everything is what it seems and not everyone is as innocent as they claim to be…
