Talented kung fu kids vs. sexy female bodybuilders!
"Lucky Seven 2" is a film so crazy and politically incorrect that it could only have been made in Hong Kong in the late 1980s-early 1990s (close enough: it was made in Taiwan!). A gang of kidnappers specializes in abducting rich kids for ransom, so the police pick seven athletically-gifted kids and send them in a military training camp to get ready to capture the kidnappers! The story is absurd, the comedy (which involves a fair amount of urination) is often tiresome, the training segments run too long....and yet, the kids themselves are clearly supremely talented athletes, the fight choreography is top-notch, Yukari Oshima makes a supercool archvillainess, and she is surrounded by some incredibly sexy female bodybuilders / bodyguards (some of them even pose for the camera - fans of female muscle definitely need to see this movie). The kids take (and give) a lot of punishment, but the violence is largely bloodless. If my one-line summary above sounds inviting, this may be the only movie where you can find something like it! **1/2 out of 4.
