Jean-Claude Van Damme in KickboxerEveryone knows there are kicks aplenty in the 1989 Jean-Claude Van Damme muy thai action classic Kickboxer, in which the Muscles from Brussels portrayed an American avenging his brother against a fearsome Thai fighter. But you really get an appreciation for just how many bone-crunching legs and feet and knees were unleashed in the action classic in this brilliantly hilarious, deceptively simple supercut that whittles Kickboxer down to, well, just the kicks.

Watch below and celebrate the kickingest movie of our time!

    Moses, for on the day you do, I'll kick your ass."
