365 Movies Day #10 "Chocolate"
Take the Taskmaster from Marvel Comics...make him a young Asian girl with autism and you have a pretty badass flick. Brought to you by the folks responsible for the original "Ong Bak", this is an impressive flick filled with amazing fight sequences and a lead character that might give Hit Girl a run for her money.
There is an appropriate level of cheese from the flick, primarily in the form of tranny henchmen and the bad guys have their own special needs commando (how convenient), but for the most part the plot is moving and easy to follow.
There is a fight scene in a meat market with some funny cringe moments. I laughed out loud a couple of times. The end fight scene on multiple levels of ledges outside of a building is so reminiscent of 80s NES games it was like a time machine. I could see Ninja Gaiden unfolding in front of me.
A fun flick and if you like martial arts movies it's a MUST see!
