Audience Reviews for High Kick Girl

i gave this movie half a star because the girl is pretty hot, thats it. the story is stupid, and the biggest flaw of this movie is the way its shot. itll replay like a kick for you from the exact same angle at the same speed for no reason. or the final fight in the gym makes no sense. the guy fights his way across the gym like 3 times. the editing confuses you terrible movie

Fuyuhiko Nishi's High Kick Girl delivers on the martial arts, but not much else.

Their isn't much in the way of plot for this 80 minute production. The film is extremely easy to follow, despite the fact that it takes a while for it to become clear as to where the story is going. The pacing is rather quick, and that is because most of the film is taken up by karate fights.

There is no shortage of action and the final 35-40 minutes, which is basically half the film, is a long drawn out showdown. The karate is real and the choreography is amusing. The sound effects are rather weak, which lessens the impact of hits, although this does help display a high sense of realism. Contributing to the massive amounts of time on the action are the slow motion shots and replays. The replays aren't for single moves either. Entire segments of 3-4 moves are shown again in slow motion. In the end, it adds up to too much.

There isn't much to the acting, which isn't perplexing, but watching Rina Takeda whoop some butt with her karate is a delight. Tatsuya Naka also steals a ton of the spotlight as he displays his real karate skills.

In conclusion, High Kick Girl is a barrel of karate with a moral message.
