Review Boyka: Undisputed IV (2016): Best of all the sequels in the franchise!

genre: martial arts, action, drama

Boyka continues his path of redemption he started in the previous film where he is all about doing good and bettering himself. Then a priest has to ruin it for him by saying that God wouldn't approve of his lifestyle. The same priest who has no problems accepting the donations Boyka is earning with fighting.

After accidentally killing an opponent in the ring Boyka's conscience ways on him heavily. So much so that he feels forced to make amends to the widow of the fighter he killed. There is more to her and her late husband of course and I will let you find out about that for yourself. Pretty predictable B movie fare but entertaining. It moves along in quite the fast pace and has very little boring moments. I do have some issues with some elements in the ending although I do understand it why they did it. Even if I don't agree with it. It's the thread used to give us to exquisite fight scenes. And they truly are a real feast for the eyes. Scott Adkins kicks and flips around like it's nothing. I know that purists frown up the flashy moves and to that I say, humbug. It looks extremely good and spectacular. We all know these fights aren't real so why not make them entertaining. Adkins looks like he is in the best shape of his life and far from finished considering his age (born: June 17, 1976). Boyka has improved considerably. Not only as a fighter but also as a human being. It's nice to see such character development. However don't get fooled by this fact since he is still as dangerous as he ever was. Only this time he does it to do good.

Director Todor Chapkanov clearly knows what the fans want and has stripped out all the annoying and boring parts from the previous films. Yet has managed to honour the story lines of previous films to strengthen Boyka's character. We still have no clue where Boyka comes from or what he actually the crimes were he has committed. It doesn't really matter. Once again he shows that he is the most complete fighter. A must watch for sure.
