Chilean martial arts thriller starring Marko Zaror as Zamir, the leader of a gang of thugs known as the Kiltros. Zamir's time with the Kiltros gives him plenty of opportunities to obsess over Kim (Caterina Jadresic), the half-Korean high school girl who he once saved from being raped and has been fixated on ever since. Kim, however, has little interest in Zamir beyond playing on his obsession for her own entertainment, at one point manoeuvering him into fighting all the students of her father's tae kwon do dojo simultaneously. When the villainous Max Kalba (Miguel Angel De Luca) appears on the scene, intent on taking his revenge against Kim's father and his martial-arts sect, Zamir is forced to finally grow up and stand up to protect the people he cares about.
Top Customer Reviews
- The fights are really gory and full of fantastical, mental, high kicks plus some nasty throat cuts and even some beheadings.
- Caterina Jadresic, the lady who plays the love interest is so hot she boiled my boys in their bag.
- Marko Zaror is an immense fellow who's speed belies his massive frame - a force to be reckoned with given the right script and action director.
- What action there is is blisteringly violent and make you wish there where more.
- If cheese is your bag then this is one sack full of bubbling, molten, stilton.
- 70% of the film is mediocre story and bad acting the likes of which will knock your brain daft. Action is what you came for and action is not what you'll get - for most part
- There is a lot of CGI blood in here which is one of my least favorite traits in films of late.
- Watching Marko Zaror cry or emote in almost any other way is like the exact opposite of watching him kick throats off: embarrassing and not something you want to see ever again - like catching your parents at it.
- After you see the love interest you'll be hoping for nudity, and the whole essence of the film suggests that it would comply with your wishes, but it doesn't and as such lets you down, massively - this is a man film in every way - no excuses.
- The make-up thing is weird - he looks like night hawk from mortal kombat...in fact considering the blood involved in the fights MK could well have been the inspiration.
- The film constantly poses the following questions to you:
1.) When and where is this supposed to be set?
2.) What the heck is everyone wearing?Read more ›

The story: Zamir (Zaror, Mirageman, Chinango) is a troubled neighborhood tuff who has the hots for Kim - a Korean girl he rescued from assault (Caterina Jadresic). When a mysterious, revenge-seeking assassin (Miguel De Luca) arrives in town and attacks the tae kwon do school of Kim's father, Zamir is nearly beaten to death but rescued by a mystic sect that will not only reveal to him the dark connections between the assassin, Kim's father (Man Soo Yoon), and himself, but also train him in the world of martial arts to redeem himself.
Let's make it clear, first and foremost, that Marko Zaror truly is a rising star: a former stuntman and champion of karate and tae kwon do, he certainly has the moves that make him stand out from pack. Comparable to Tony Jaa, he's big on flips and spin kicks, capable of delivering multiple blows in a single leap, and incorporates some wrestling moves for a power effect. A wise old teacher in the movie (played by Chilean TV veteran Alejandro Castillo) instructs him "Your leg should move as naturally as your eyelids", and Zaror achieves this effect without the use of wires, CGI, or the speeding up of footage. With that said, there is not nearly enough fighting in the movie: four hand-to-hand scenes may sound like average, but when they're either very short or feature lengthy pauses inbetween the action, it seems like a lot less. The best encounter is definitely between Zaror and about twenty of the assassin's henchmen, but this sadly also showcases the film's lazy use of CGI blood spurts, which are unrealistic enough to make you pause the film and wonder what in the world you're watching.
Being both a throwback to the corny-yet-entertaining era of action's heyday and a film in which three of its stars have never acted before, the thematic aspects are along the lines of what you'd expect from a dumb action movie but passable nonetheless, with a few scenes involving Zamir, his mother, and Kim showcasing at least some dramatic know-how. Sadly, this is undermined by a seemingly endless supply of boring flashbacks that aid the telling of a story that you could've figured out by yourself. Most damning, however, is that the movie just isn't as interesting as the filmmakers wanted it to be: you've got a hero wearing facepaint and blades on his heels, a villain wielding a deadly clawed cane/sword, a mysterious sect, a hot girl, torture via wire suspension, Bruce Lee-inspired training sessions, and a dwarf master called Nik Nak...yet not only does it not all come together seamlessly, but it regularly forgets whether it wants to be serious or tongue-in-cheek. You could've turned the cane into a lollipop, the sect into a catering service, the hot girl into your mother, and the dwarf into a skinny giant, and the movie would probably be pretty much the same because it fails to take full advantage of all of these cool little aspects; I ended up feeling that it could've all been a lot, lot cooler.
Still, Marko Zaror is still with us, and that's what counts as long as he fulfills his potential as one of the most able-bodied men in action cinema today. If you're a diehard fan of this man the movie world barely knows, give "Kiltro" a buy...but otherwise just watch the fight scenes online and thereby see the best that the film has to offer.
