Not exactly mind-bending, but certainly body-bending!
11 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

"Yoga and the Kung-Fu Girl" is a cheap old-school kung fu movie, distinguished by the presence of the astonishing contortionist Phoenix Chen in its cast. That girl can really flip, bend and roll! Her body would hardly be more flexible if it was made out of rubber. And although she is clearly a more accomplished contortionist than martial artist, she has her moments in fighting, too (like when she breaks both the arms of an opponent in three different places!). When she is not on the screen, most of the fights are nothing special, and when there are no fights on the screen either, the film comes close to being unbearable. The Dragon DVD may look good on the outside, but it actually features a full-screen and poorly dubbed in English print (the heroine is mute, but luckily for her EVERYONE in this film seems to understand sign language). However, the final fight scene, a not-unfair 3-on-1, goes on for more than 10 minutes and will probably leave most genre addicts satisfied. (**1/2)
