cute girl makes film
17 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There a few films, in various genres, that I watch just to see a girl, and this is one.

Unfortunately, I'm uncertain of her name, since the cast credits, as is true for most Lai Bros re-releases of Korean films, is almost entirely phony, a mish-mash of Korean, Chinese, and unnecessary Westernizations ("Mario Chan," indeed!). The one exception is the actor with real drawing power here, Hwang Jang Lee, providing a professional performance as the villain, and some real fighting skills.

But the girl really makes the picture. Although hardly an 'ideal beauty' in either Western or Oriental terms, she has marvelously beautiful eyes, a winning smile, and she's just as cute as one would want from an attractive, virtuous young woman on a mission to find her man and right a wrong. She can also act, I find her performance wholly believable, and she even fights pretty good, at least on occasion.

The film itself is a typical Lai/Ho hack job on a Korean hybrid of kung fu revenge flick and comedy. No great shakes; certainly not the worst of its kind, and even above average in the story. The fighting too is nothing exceptional, but it ain't bad.

But I will always remember the girl. In another universe we are meeting at a garden, going out to an ice-cream parlor, beginning an idyllic romance...and of course kicking some mean kung fu butt.

Yep, your martial-artist girl-next-door. A real joy.
