Slightly better video quality than original 'Kickboxing Acad

(2 out of 5 stars)
"A re-release of the really bad 1997 movie Kick-Boxing Academy as an attempt to capitalize on the recent incestuous themed controversy that surrounds the movie due to Chyler Leigh playing the love-interest of her real-life brother Chris. The new notoriety is due largely to Chyler landing a high profile role as a cast member of the popular TV show Grey's Anatomy.
Really no difference from the original that I can tell (no added footage nor bonus features) but the video quality is noticeably better, though still not great for a DVD. The often embarrassing B-movie (Chyler won't even put it on her resume) deserves 1 star, but gave it 2 for the improvement in video quality."
Edited Version of Kickboxing Academy

"While as the previous reviewer mentioned, the video quality is better, this re-packaged version of Kickboxing Academy has also been inexplicably edited, losing at least one hilarious scene. By hilarious, I mean hilariously bad. Kickboxing Academy is a masterpiece of ineptitude. However, this version should be avoided as it is not intact. Hunt down the original DVD, it's worth it."
