Nothing too interesting here, this is kinda an underdog story. If you have seen Rocky, you have pretty much seen it all. The actors are good and it was cool how most of them have their own story arc. Main actress is fun, and the main actor is cool too. Overall this is just a light hearted (kinda funny) movie about ping pong in Japanese, with a mix of revenge thrown in.
