"It is perhaps not ironic that VIRTUAL COMBAT, one of Don "The Dragon" Wilson's best movies (a close second to RING OF FIRE II: BLOOD AND STEEL), is also one of the most abscure of all direct to video Sci-Fi martial arts movies (which I call "Sci-Fu".) It can be found on www.hkflix.com as GRID RUNNERS.
The story of course centers on Dante (Michael Bernardo) escaping from his virtual reality kickboxing game and trying to release all his virtual buddies so they can rule the world. And of course only David Quarry (Don "The Dragon" Wilson) and virtual karate babe Lianna (Athena Massey) can stop him.
Speaking of Lianna, it is worth mentioning that Athena Massey is going to draw alot of attention if you see her in this movie. Not only is she one of the sexiest women ever, she also has her own martial arts training in techniques such as Krav Maga, and devilers some nice moves of her own.
Don "The Dragon" does the most martial arts fighting though. Aside form Dante, his main opponent in the film is played by Loren Avedon, who holds blackbelts in Tae Kwon Do and Hap Ki Do. And Don's nunchuck battle is one of his best ever. So, Sci-Fu aficianados, feel free to check out VIRTUAL COMBAT today."
Could have been better

"Okay, I love science fiction, in fact it's a religion for me! However, the plot of this movie was weak and it seems that it was made with only two things in mind: lots of good martial arts action and Athena Massey's sexy bod being shown off. They could've done so much more with this idea, but failed. The only real reason to see this movie, sad as it sounds, is the hot nudity."
Science fiction action, better than "Virtuosity"!

"When a lab experiement goes wrong and the villain from a virtual reality police training game is cloned into reality, border cop David Quarry (Don "The Dragon" Wilson) must track him down before he can clone ALL of the VR villains... even though Quarry has never won against the villain in VR. Quarry's only clue - A sexy woman with a secret... she's a cloned VR character, too! Similar plot to "Virtuosity", but not as dumb as the Denzel Washington film. Michael Dorn from TNG is the VR villain's voice."
