High Kick Girl

Standard

So this high school Japanese girl has managed to become a great marital artist, yet in all of her training has missed the spiritual lessons of Karate. Anyway her teacher refuses to give her a black belt. In her desire to prove her strength, she makes a stupid (she is a teenager) choice and winds up in a gang.

You need a buddy to laugh and heckle at the movie with you, it will make this more fun. The martial arts is okay. The sensei is the best, but unfortunately he doesn’t fight until the end. However, you can watch Japanese girls in school girl uniforms fighting if that’s your thing.

If you’re a fan of Asian martial arts movies, I say go for it. Expect cheesiness and a predictable plot, but there are some fun martial arts, classic Karate philosophy, and girls in short pleated skirts.
