Almost good but with some complaint!
I saw Desert Kickboxer on my cable TV channel in the name of "Desert Hawk" which I thought that the channel believe that the name "Desert Hawk" is better than "Desert Kickboxer" However, I doesn't matter with it.
Desert Kickboxer had the 100% look of the independent film. The scene, the cast and the plot was very simply. However, I didn't like some scene of the movie which is too cruel. For example, the scene which Claudia Valenti was slapped and was sex harassed by the abominable gangster which try to caught her for their boss. I hate that stuff very much! This made me remember to Steven Seagal's Marked for Death which his sister (in the film) was slapped and was almost killed by the main villain's brother. I accepted that I hate the violence from men to women even I am a man. This is the main reason which I dislike many movie from that reason.
For the next subject, this movie has the good action scene but it could had more. John Newton was very good for his combat skill but the movie had a few area for him to show. I think if the production's crew put more the combat scene. It could be interested more. For the plot, I didn't have the problem with the plot but it could made the viewer confused, due to the Joe Highhawk's past but I didn't see that too much.
I believed that the financial and the size of film's crew made this movie had the less quality than the general film from the big brother company. However, it is OK at one level.
