I’ve been waiting for it, you’ve been waiting for it — we’ve all been waiting for it. Now, thanks to the hard-working folks over at Nippon Cinema, you too can now enjoy the first complete trailer for Yoshikatsu Kimura’s upcoming martial arts outing “High Kick Girl 2”. The clip is certainly designed to get your adrenaline pumping, and I must say it does its job extremely well. Needless to say, I’m duly impressed.
Here’s the plot in a nutshell:
Sisters Ayaka and Natsuki Kurenai are the youngest descendants of a legendary Okinawan karate master named Shoujirou Kurenai. As children, they live a happy life with their father who teaches them karate. One day, a mysterious group kills their father, kidnaps Natsuki, and steals the black belt which has been passed down in their family for over 200 years.
Years later, Ayaka has moved to Yokohama to live the life of an ordinary teenager. Meanwhile, Natsuki’s captors have turned her into a killing machine. Eventually, they discover Ayaka’s whereabouts and pit sister against sister. With the teachings of her father still in her heart, Ayaka must do whatever it takes to save her sister and get revenge against the group that tore their family apart.
“High Kick Girl 2” — or, simply, “KG” — will kick Japanese movie-goers a kick in the pants on February 5th, 2011. So what are you waiting for? Check out the embedded clip, already!
