Although the embedded clip is essentially the same as the trailer we posted a while back for the upcoming Japanese action flick “Karate Girl” — or, as it’s also known in certain circles, “High Kick Girl 2″ — it’s kind of cool to see what, exactly, the film is all about. Of course, the plot isn’t anything original or mind-blowing, and only serves to display the talents of its talented star. In other words, it’s not a mind-blowing example of cinematic storytelling. Were you expecting something deeper? I certainly hope not.

“Karate Girl” opens in Japan on February 5th, 2011.




About Todd Rigney

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.
