Generic but competent martial arts actioner
29 August 2010 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Jeff Speakman is an ex cop, trying to prevent war between two rival gangs. However, a shadowy group are instigating the war, in order to take over the streets. Why are the actual cops themselves doing nothing to prevent this state of affairs? Because they aren't martial artists, and Speakman is, that's why.

Nobody is going to watch a film called "Street Knight" featuring a martial artist in order to see a heartfelt social commentary on gang violence. They're gonna watch it to see Speakman kick ass, break heads and then kick more ass.

Does he fulfill his ass kicking duties? Yeah, pretty much, and it's the actual fight scenes (including one wince inducing one with mechanic's tools) which somewhat elevates Street Knight above the usual bargain basement crap. Speakman is a competent martial artist and the scenes are well choreographed, which makes this one worth a watch, and satisfying (albeit in a purely switch brain off kinda way) for fans of the genre, or action fans.

Nothing at all special, but a satisfying enough beer/whatever flick all the same. 6/10, bonus point for decent fight scenes.
