Nothing extraordinary to this movie...
16 December 2015 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

This movie's selling point is of course the promise of getting to see attractive Hong Kong women duking it out on the screen. And yes, there is an audience for that. Either I am not in that particular target audience or I just wasn't enthralled by what "Kick Ass Girls" was selling. This was a rather mundane and pointless movie in my opinion.

The story is about three women who practice martial arts in Hong Kong, who get lured to Malaysia under false pretenses and end up having to do battle in an underground tournament. Can we say "Bloodsport" anyone? "Kick Ass Girls" offered absolutely nothing to the martial arts genre that hadn't already been seen before in similar movies. No, everything here was generic and anything but outstanding.

I was especially impressed with the guitar player in the gym who managed to get violin sounds out of an acoustic guitar. That was just fantastically stupid.

There were some nice enough costumes and make-up for some of the fighters brought into the ring. But that hardly made up for all the stuff that was lacking in the movie.

As for the fight scenes, well they were adequate. And that is actually just about it. It was adequately choreographed but executed in a much too scripted manner. It just lacked a natural flow to it. And it was clear to see that martial arts was not something some of the women were overly familiar with, as they lacked the finesse and grace that comes with years of practice.

All in all, "Kick Ass Girls" is a hollow movie sold of alluring promises to lure in the male audience. And the DVD cover does promise more than the movie did manage to deliver.
