Storyline

Slim muscular women, with bare midriffs, demonstrate kuo shu martial arts, fighting with long sticks in front of sleazy rich men. It's an art performed as entertainment; but, when violence breaks out within the troupe, Tyler (the best fighter) leaves. After the death of the troupe's master, the dish-water blond Tyler returns to face honey-blond Morgan, whom Tyler suspects is the cause of both the violence and their teacher's demise. In the practice room, barefoot and armed only with a long stick, they fight to the death. Is it good-bye Tyler? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Maybe we missed the point---did they intend this as a comedy?!
12 March 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I found this on the Reelmind.com website among the many independent short films they post and after watching a couple dozen, I can honestly say that CHICKS WITH STICKS is by far the worst of them (in fact, most were very good). In fact, it's just bad film-making and shouldn't be on the site, as it cheapens the rest of the short films. That is unless they really DID intend for this to be a comedic parody (which, unfortunately, I don't think they did). In this short film, just about every martial arts/action film cliché was included--along with not particularly inspired fighting and silly plot. It's like a very bad 90 minute film boiled down to its absolute worst core. Sadly, the film was apparently posted to try to secure financing for a full-length version!! If this actually occurs (given the rottenness of the film and a 1.8 rating on IMDb this is highly unlikely), it's a sure sign that the apocalypse is upon us!!!

Usually with young film makers I am extra cautious and don't give scathing reviews--I know it is hard to make it in this field. But this film concept is just a dead end--find some other idea, please. Women pummeling each other with staffs isn't much of a plot (though it is probably very interesting to many Freudian analysts).
