The Kick (2011) Movie Image

I’m not going to set this one up too much, as I’ve already covered director Prachya Pinkaew’s “The Kick” to the point of serious cinematic oversaturation. And I wouldn’t want to be accused hyping a motion picture too much. That having been said, the latest trailer for the upcoming Taekwondo actioner is seriously cool, and you should watch the embedded clip as soon as humanly possible. If you’re at work, take your laptop/tablet/smartphone into the nearest bathroom and pretend like you have the runs. Assuming, of course, you enjoy watching previews for martial arts movies more than being gainfully employed. The decision, as they say, is yours.

Would you also like a long synopsis? If so, you’re in luck:

Moon is a Taekwondo master running an old Taekwondo gym in Bangkok. All five members of his family are also the masters of Taekwondo in different styles: his wife Yoon in cooking style, son Taeju in dancing style, daughter Taemi in soccer style, and the youngest Typhoon can break anything with his strong forehead.

Moon wants his children to be Taekwondo coaches to take over his gym in future. However, regardless of their father’s will, Taeju wants to be a famous pop singer and Taemi is only interested in her secret crush at school.

One day, Taekwon family encounters treasure robbers on the street by accident and happens to get caught into fight with them. With surprising martial art skills, TK family knocks down the robbers and takes back the stolen treasures. The head of the robbers Pom, who is notorious for many crimes, escapes alone and trembles with rage.

TK family becomes famous in public. But, They do not know that Pom is planning to get his revenge.

What in the hell are you waiting for? The trailer desires your attention.
