Braced by spiky humor but tempered by sentimentality, Ping Pong might have been a disposable teen comedy if not for the Japanese film's unexpectedly thrilling action sequences and subtly profound observations about competition and the human spirit.
The movie has some of the feel of a good graphic novel and offers a lot of Japanese pop pleasures as well. The images are eye-catching and highly colorful, the pacing is fast, and the story and the characters are simple, grabby and archetypal.
An overlong exercise in sport as character-builder.
Overlong and overstuffed with characters and situations, Ping Pong doesn't really succeed on a dramatic level.
Ping Pong is probably the most extravagant celebration of a childhood game ever committed to film.
The film projects a sense of loopy joy that comes from being young and playing the only game that matters.
There are no surprises in this match, but director Fumihiko Sori makes the games visually thrilling and communicates the athletic nirvana of high-level competition...
Table tennis. That's pretty much it. For two hours.
Seems more suited to video than the big screen--a study in teen angst with some digitally enhanced shots of table tennis.
Kudo neatly codes allusions to yin-yangs into his frames, stressing time and again that the game of ping pong is not about winning so much as it is a matter of social. camaraderie and blissful self-reflection.
Previsível como a maior parte dos filmes de esporte, mas acaba conquistando por desenvolver muito bem seus personagens, levando o espectador a se importar com todos eles.
For what it's worth, it's undoubtedly the best ping pong movie ever made!
Ostensibly a sports film, but it isn't really. Based on the manga series of the same name, it's about high school championship ping pong, but instead of the classic underdog beats the world plot, we have a quiet boy with talent but no motivation for winning and his arrogant friend who he lets beat him. So our introverted hero finds his strength (cue Rocky soundtrack) and after many trials and tribulations, finishes with a head-to-head match and wins the championship and a standing ovation, hooray? Nope, nothiing like that. Guess you might have to see it.
