Tony Chiu Wai Leung,
Get ready for the ultimate martial arts competition, where anything goes and lives are bought and sold. Tank is the celebrated Champion Star Runner and is deemed invincible among the martial arts community. When the headstrong Bond becomes determined to take on the undefeated fighter, he knows he must be in the best fighting condition. Training under a renowned martial arts expert, Bond learns to supplement his Thai Kickboxing skills with various styles of Chinese kun-fu, creating a powerful hybrid fighting style. With his new skills, Bond prepares to take on Tank and the fight of his life.
The premise is rather familiar: down on his luck fighter digs deep within along with the help of some quirky coaches to fight in an international kick boxing tournament. It's nothing we haven't seen before, but then again, it is always in the details.
Star Runner in the grandest sense is a very typical movie, but the allure of Hong Kong and the fight sequences are still pretty solid. Throw in the ravishing Bond, and you get a pretty watchable movie. Overall, this film probably needed some better actors and some fine tuning in regards to the script, but at least it was still decent to view.
