Twins, a vengeful ghost and a super slow car chase...
3 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

"Kimmy Dora and the Temple of Kiyeme" is a unique movie, let me just start out by saying that. And as such, that could be taken as a good thing or a bad thing, depending on which side of the table you are sitting.

I had no idea what I was getting into here, except that it was a comedy. So, was this movie a good or bad experience for me? Well, I enjoyed it and found it to be super corny, so I will have to say a good thing.

The story told in the movie is about a pair of identical twins, Kimmy and Dora (both played by Eugene Domingo). Kimmy is strict, business-minded and level-headed, while Dora is slow and mentally challenged. Bad things start to happen in their lives and to the guys they individually love. And a dark family secret becomes unveiled, and it is up to Kimmy and Dora to put an end to an old curse.

As for the people cast for the various roles, then I will say that people did good jobs with their given roles. However, Eugene Domingo can be somewhat of an acquired taste.

The movie was fun and had some really hilarious scenes. However, there were also many scenes that was too much, honestly, where it was just downright stupid at times, especially because many of the scenes were so over-acted. But that is part of the charm of this particular genre, I suppose. And as such, this movie might not just be in the liking of just everyone in the audience.

Actually the story was well executed, with just the right amount of comedy, drama and even a pinch of horror. It was a strange and unique mixture of genres, but ultimately it worked out well enough.

If you enjoy the goofy and downright silly genre there is to be found in Asian cinema, then chances are that you will enjoy watching "Kimmy Dora and the Temple of Kiyeme". 6 out of 10 stars rating from me.
