Review | HIGH KICK GIRL JAPANESE MOVIE
The greatest cinematic invention is this: A cute schoolgirl in a short skirt kicking butt. Yep, I’m a sucker for movies like this. All I ask is that there be plentiful exhibitions of well-choreographed buttkicking by cute schoolgirls. “High Kick Girl” provides a lot of this for the opening 50 minutes or so, but then takes a turn for the worse.
There are a number of positives to this film. First of all, there is a ton of fighting here. I didn’t actually time the length of the action sequences, but it felt like they occupied more than half of the total running time. This is a good thing. Secondly, the martial arts choreography is 100% realistic. Not one move required the use of wires, and most of the actors gave an impressive exhibition. Thirdly, the lead actress has an intimidating, arrogant persona and it’s fun watching her taunt and humiliate her opponents. Fourthly, there are a handful of cute schoolgirl baddies that the protagonist battles with. Fifthly, the camera-work uses a lot of wide shots so that the viewer can see everything clearly. There are also some fairly long sequences without cuts or editing gimmicks.
