First we get what is almost inevitable, the announcement "A Fuyuhiko Nishi film" like as if every director nowadays that we've never heard of is a budding Kurosawa, Hitchcock, John Ford etc. I find this practice pretentious and irritating.
Also when the first credits eventually arrive after an opening scene my reaction is invariably "Oh it hasn't started yet". When will talented new filmmakers arrive who, 'en masse', can do worse than revive the proven virtues of pithy snappy credits right at the start (giving us all we need to know) and then get on with it?
Nishi uses slow-motion and dramatic pauses, throwing in the odd replay action which is sometimes effective, sometimes superfluous. It's equally "A Tatsuya Naka and Rina Takeda film". They play karate master Matsumura and his impetuous girl pupil Kei Tsuchida respectively. Naka and director take the bare bones plot all very seriously whereas the impish gung ho Takeda seems more aware that this is a 'beat 'em up'/revenge exercise for all the professing that "Karate is not for fighting".
Matsumura seeks out the gang that's holding his pupil and her schoolfriend hostage. Unfortunately the gang has a vendetta on him and wants him dead.
Naka has great moments and some dud ones too. He is waylaid by a sultry piece in a kimono (the only really exotic outfit, succeeding school ones we see on other girls). Her weapon of choice is a light chain that looks as if it's part of a window shutter fitment (well, it is low budget drama).
Turns out she is a rubbish fighter. Our hero first has to sort out an annoying distraction by an attacking guy, but when he does get to her it only takes a piffling tap to put her out of action.

High Kick Girl

Starring: Rina Takeda ,Tatsuya Naka

Directed By: Fuyuhiko Nishi - 2009

This is one of those films i have been waiting to see for a while ,but the Japanese import was like £60.00 to buy ,so i waited till a US RELEASE of the film before investing a lot less.

Now as with all films that you wait for in anticipation ,we are often let down more then Not.But i can rightly say that 'High Kick Girl' was worth it.

Rina Takeda a real life Karate champion stars in this film as Kei a high school student and Karate Student under Yoshiaki Matsumura .Now Kei is a Brown Belt and longs for her Black Belt.She does not understand why her Sensei will not grade her ,so she goes around challenging the Black Belts at local schools and beating them .

Her Teacher Yoshiaki trys to explain it's not about fighting and beating people but spirit and patiance .He makes her practice forms as her base but Kei see's it like a punishment,not fully understanding the essence of Karate.

Still purturbed she still wants to prove herself to her Sensei.Now mysteriously Kei gets a phone call from a man asking her to come and join The Destroyers ,who are a group of Martial artists who for a price will do your dirty work or any other criminal activity.

Thinking this is her chance to prove herself she goes along ,only to be met by more young girls who confront and fight her ( it's so much fun watching these young school girls beat the stuffing out of each other )

Thing is it's all a ploy to kidnap Kei and get her Sensei to rescue her .The Destroyers want to kill him and getting to Kei they have their chance.

When Yoshiaki hears what has happened he acts on impulse going to the rescue of Kei .

What a suprise,i thought this was going to be a bad buy but its very well done for a low budget japanese film.This isnt a fake fighting/school girl showing her nickers type of film,for starters the leading lady or should i say girl is very good at Karate.In the extras you can see her training and her kicks are both powerfull and fast.All the fights are well filmed and with full contact.The first fight in which Rina takes on a Karate school is fantastic,you will have a smile on your face when you see her kick butt with real power,speed and skill,very much like Hong Kong films of the 90s and Thai films of recent years like Chocolate. This dvd is region 1 so its lucky i have a multi region player.

If you're looking to see a good martial-arts fight film I recommend you look elsewhere right now. I saw the trailers for high kick girl a long time ago and was really impressed by real life karate expert Rina Tekeda. However what they don't show you is that virtually the whole films martial-arts sequences are set in slow motion. And if you happened to miss that intensely frustratingly slow sequence all too often they showed it again in a double take.

Slow-motion shots and double-takes are fine when used in moderation, especially after watching a jaw-droppingly awesome move you can't believe you just saw. But what you have here in high kick girl is just ridiculous. You lose the flow of all the fights sequences, the impact and how impressive some of the practitioners performing in this movie actually are.

It's actually sad seeing some of the out-takes at the correct speed and it looks so much better. The simple fact is that if this film showed all the fights sequences in real time instead of dragging out virtually every martial-arts scene. High kick girl would probably be 45 minutes long and all the better for it. Yes that's how much they dragged out the fight sequences to make the film in the region of 80 minutes, if I recall correctly.

All in all there are tons of better movies out there and as great as Rina Tekeda looks, this film has been ruined in post production. I recommend looking elsewhere and buying something much more entertaining from Amazon.

However if this film is ever released with all the fight scenes intact played at the proper speed that would be worth seeing!
