Richard Norton stars as Ryan Travis, a street punk who becomes a street fighter to pay for the operation that will save his sister, however the mobsters want him to lose so they decide to try and kidnap her while he trains in whatever it is they call martial arts in this movie. Kick Fighter stars Richard Norton, who I know is a great martial artist but in this movie he isn't so great, in fact his action sequences are laboring and slow. Norton doesn't have enough charisma to make the role work and basically the movie is a yawner as we watch lackluster martial arts rain down on the screen with no skill or purpose. It can also be that we are indifferent to who wins being that we know so little about the characters but mainly it is because the movie is so boring. It's not so bad it's good, it doesn't have good fight sequences, it's just awful and you're best off avoiding it like the plague.
1/2* out of 4-(Awful)
