Dow, a mad scientist is hell bent on creating hybrids to defend Seattle using superheroines. Some called him mad, not understanding him. He has won many awards in the Science community and is always pushing the limit and trying new things. Eventually Dow was expelled from the Science community, this angered him and caused him to really push forward, working hard to come up with his creation. Written by
The title of this movie caught my eye right off the bat. Teenage Kung FU Cottontails? Are you kidding me? This movie had to be watched!
I was at the premier last week and had a great time. I got to meet some of the actors and the director and they were really cool.
I don't want to give away the plot but the story is based around a mad scientist who wants to create super heroes to protect Seattle (where the movie was shot) so he takes DNA from a Kung Fu master and injects it into female rabbits. That's when all the action happens.
I was told that the film only cost $20,000 to make and if that's true it looks pretty good for the price. The director, Hollywill Jonz, does a great job of pacing and the camera work kept me interested. With such a small budget the special effects left something to be desired but overall the look of the film was great.
The standout of this movie is Jason Davinchi Samaritano who plays Detective Joseph Reimy. This is his debut performance and he does an excellent job. He is a local hip hop artist and has a pretty big following. Apparently he had some songs on the Battle 4 Seattle movie soundtrack. I haven't heard his music but everyone was telling me to listen to "Fight 4 My City".
Every rapper want to be an actor nowadays but I think Samaritano really has the potential to be a breakout star. His IMDb ranking is already nearly 5,000,000. I would like to see him again in a bigger budget film to really show off his talent.
The rest of the cast gave solid performances. Frank Briley as Chief Johnson Melinda Raybne as Maria, Elke Hatula as Psychedelica, Audra Page as Lisa, Nyema Clark as Beatrice, Emma Nguyen as Ayumi, Aaron Arnold as Techla all turned in great performances.
This film will probably gain a cult following once it hits Netflix and Redbox. If you get a chance check out this flick. You will not be disappointed.
