"Johnny Tao" is the dream project of writer/director Kenn Scott, best known for wearing the Raphael costume in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II - The Secret of the Ooze. According to the behind-the-scenes featurette, Scott envisioned a kung fu film that would combine comedy and martial arts to fill the void of quality action flicks geared towards kids. True to his aspirations, the movie certainly is modeled in the same vein as "Power Rangers" and the like, with the exception of including the occult as a plot point and featuring above-average (for a DTV production) martial arts. If you're sniffy about wanting blood and guts and bad language in your movies, leave this one behind, but if you're hip to the director's ideals, line up and you won't be too disappointed.

The story: Johnny (Matthew Twining, Leeches) is an aspiring martial artist and struggling gas station owner with plans to sell his residency and start over somewhere else. Things take a change for the extreme when his weirdo roommate Eddie (Matt Mullins, Blood & Bone) uncovers one half of an ancient spear housing a sleeping demon and is turned into a lethal vessel with plans to take over the world by turning humans into zombie-ish slaves. With aid of a beautiful warrior descended from an ancient line of demon slayers (Chris Yen, Donnie's little sister), Matthew must find the weapon's other half to save his hometown from invasion.

...As the saying goes. This movie is one good reason for it. I was curious about it when I saw it in the rental place and this is one of those times where curiousity did NOT kill this cat. I actually enjoyed the movie. I enjoyed it so much, that I've seen it 3 times now (with the same rented DVD)!

Simple, direct to the point story that's good for the whole family. Lots of cool action and acceptable special effects. It's a coming of age where our young hero was thrown in the midst of the whole good vs. evil battle and he actually did ok. Hey, it's his first mission and he's on his own (sorta)!

They so need to make a series! Now, I'm buying this! :-D

Matt Mullins is DEFINITELY amazing in this, you don't get no farther in personality differences than that of both of his characters, and matt pulled them off so well.

all in all, good action, funny scenes, great acting, and good stunts. which just goes to show that Matthew Mullins truly is one of the best out there since he required no double.

When I say Family Kung Fu, OI don't mean there is a lack of action because it abounds , and in good style... I mean, it lacks the needless evil and gore. It has a good pace and the scenes flow together very well unlike most lower budget movies.

This is a fantastic rainy afternoon video for the whole family. While it is not a big budget action FX production with mega stars... I still have to give it my highest rating... Hey, all you low budget producers out there, THIS IS HOW IT IS DONE.
