Despite its shortcomings, “High Kick Girl” was a somewhat enjoyable endeavor that featured an ultra-cute Japanese girl kicking some serious ass for roughly 80 minutes. Sure, the picture has the same aesthetic as an episode of “Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers”, but there was something unusually charming about watching star Rina Takeda effortlessly beat the living daylights out of an extremely odd assortment of villains. Someone out there must have enjoyed it, too, because Takeda and crew are returning for “High Kick Girl 2: Revenge”, the teaser for which has been lovingly positioned below for your immediate enjoyment. There isn’t much to the clip, but you can tell they’ve got a little more money to work with this time around. I’m not going to complain about that one little bit.
No word on a release date yet, but I strongly advise staying tuned for details. Much love to Film Smash for the cinematic scoopage.
