Just die with dignity...Reviewed byfmarkland32Vote: 1/10

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.

Wasted Gwai lo'sReviewed bytpr007Vote: 3/10

When I came across this movie in a small Birmingham newsagent for a mere £4.99 I thought it was my lucky day! Richard Norton and Benny the Jet Urquidez are arguably two of the best "Gwailo" villains to have ever graced the Jade screen, so to have the two go against each other seemed like the makings for quality entertainment - I was clearly wrong! The basic premise of the story sees Richard go into raw, back street brawling matches to earn extra cash in order to look after his ill sister. Ultimately, and after some terrible fight scenes, his sister is kidnapped and Richard is forced into a contest against the "World Undefeated Kickboxing Champion" (Benny) to save her. Why? I'm not too sure! As mentioned, the fight sequences that occur for the first hour of the film are not even close to the standard of any HK action film. There is little evident choreography, and it seems as though they really did pick brawlers off the street and got Richard to grapple with them. The finale against Benny is also a disappointment, as having seen both of them battle people like Jackie Chan and Sammo so impressively, they really should have put more effort in. Richard pulls a few nice kicks, but Benny looks a bit fat and even older than his far more impressive outing 7 years later in 'Enter the Eagles'. Richard himself has been a fight choreographer numerous times, especially for Cynthia Rothrock or Chuck Norris's 'Walker' TV series and they all show his talents far better than here. I can only assume it wasn't his choreography, but can't see the point of bringing someone else in, especially on the apparent shoestring budget! There is nothing to recommend this film to anyone accustomed to the HK styling of people like Sammo Hung or Yuen Woo Ping unless you must own every film featuring these two guys. If you want an added fix of Richard Norton go for something better like ALL his HK films or even his US efforts with Cynthia Rothrock. As for Benny: Well, keep re-running 'Wheels on Meals', 'Dragons Forever' or 'Enter the Eagles' to remind you he is actually a fantastic fighter!
