It was the movie that introduced Jean-Claude Van Damme to an International audience. Van Damme plays Frank Dux, a real person, for whom the film is somewhat based, who enters an undergound fighting tournament to honor his ailing master who has taught him everything he knows. The soundtrack, composed by Paul Hertzog is quintessential 80's. The synthesized sounds, mixed with classic drum machine passes take you right back 20 years. Add in some classical Asian intrumentation and you have an extremely good soundtrack. Anyone who remembers the film remembers the three songs as well. Fight to Survive, On My Own-Alone and Steal the Night could have played anytime on MTV and blended in with the sounds and style of the day. This soundtrack, relatively unavailable for some time, if ever, sounds fantastic. All cues from the film are represented and are 100% spot on. Now all we need is a re-relaease of the soundtrack for Kickboxer (also composed by Hertzog) and your Van Damme 80's collection will be complete. In conclusion, this soundtrack is highly recommended for anyone who longs for the time when Martial Arts films were popular again and Van Damme was just breaking (no pun intended) onto the scene.
