NO RETREAT, NO SURRENDER Takes The Hong Kong Crossover Action To Blu-Ray In February


Perhaps one of the best pieces of news came back in June when it was announced that the 1986 film, No Retreat, No Surrender was heading to Blu-Ray. The film is a celebrated action classic that notably landed budding action star Jean-Claude Van Damme in the spotlight before catapulting to Hollywood fame in the 1990s after Bloodsport.

Here he plays a ruthless Russian kickboxer and right hand man to Seattle's most dangerous crime boss in a tale of a young teen, bullied and discouraged by his peers, who sets out to find his strength and courage in the ghost of his idol, Bruce Lee. Van Damme is joined by lead actor Kurt McKinney, as well as J.W. Fails, Kathie Sileno, and Tai Chung Kim.

I checked with Kino Lorber last year and was informed that there are no current Blu-Ray re-release plans for the remainder of the No Retreat, No Surrender trilogy which also introduced action legends Cynthia Rothrock, actors Matthias Hues, Loren Avedon, Max Bayer, Keith Vitali and Rion Hunter. Hopefully that changes on a day not too distant in the future because these films are classics much like their Hong Kong relatives and truly deserve a high-quality delivery a Blu-Ray can offer.

This one releases on February 21, 2017 and you can now pre-order your copy for $19.99 at Amazon.com right now. Read on below the art!
