Cheesy, but still watchable
7 October 2004 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

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.
