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.
If you can slush through the first 40 minutes of STAR RUNNER, which features one of the most contrived and inexplicable romance in movie history, then the film is worthwhile. The fights range from decent to good, and the final brawl is impressive. The female lead is very beautiful, but her character is also the weakest element of the film. Whenever the character is onscreen, the cliches come hard and fast, and you'll be hard-pressed to survive it all.
Summation: Nothing original, but decent if you can survive the silly and unbelievable romance angle that incredibly takes up the film's entire first half.
