4.0 out of 5 stars now I, too, want to dance fight April 14, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The Kick, a Thai/Korean colab, keeps faith with a staple of director Prachya Pinkaew's: phenomenal action beats framed in a weak narrative. Prachya Pinkaew has built up impressive cachet, having guided the likes of Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior, Tom-Yum-Goong, and Chocolate to international acclaim. The Kick tracks a Korean family of taekwondo practitioners that immigrates to Bangkok, Thailand and sets up a martial arts school.

The movie opens 28 days away from the Olympic tryouts and with the patriarch, Master Moon Sa-beom (Jae-hyeon Jo), psyched about the opportunity for the fam to win a gold medal. Master Moon is one of them stern, autocratic sorts whose word is absolute and final. He's pushing his oldest son, Tae Yang (Tae-joo Na), to master the particularly difficult tornado kick. This doesn't sit well with Tae Yang. He'd rather be a dancer than a martial artist. In fact, Tae Yang has got an audition on the sly, and this ultimately gets in the way of his taekwondo training. Watch the daddy drama attain combustible levels. But the father-son mad-on is only the sub-plot.

The story's main thrust revolves around the family's foiling the theft of an invaluable Thai national relic - the Kris of Kings - by a well-coordinated gang of thieves. For their intervention, the family is celebrated as heroes. But you just know the big bad entrepreneur (Kwan-hun Lee) - who'd masterminded the heist - is seething and plotting a retaliation.

The Kick's flimsy plot still delivers a bag of treats. The bad guy dramatics are often offset by these injections of humor, with the cast occasionally plying their martial arts to comic effect. I belly laughed all the way thru that scene in which the family is on stage to showcase their taekwondo skills - but the floor proves too slippery.

I have witnessed drunken style, dragon style, snake style, kungfu soccer so why not dancing style. Rating based on half a movie.

If you are an avid fan of martial arts action films, you probably have heard the name of Prachya Pinkaew, director of such films as "Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior," "Tom-Yum-Goong," and "Chocolate." He has directed a 2011 Korean-Thai movie "The Kick," starring Cho Jae Hyun and Ji-won Ye as Moon and Yoon, a married couple and taekwondo experts living with their three children in Thailand, where they own a taekwondo gym.

The family gets involved with a group of criminals trying to steal the country's national treasure when they accidentally interfere with their heist. Being afraid of further trouble, Moon sends the kids to the home of his old Thai friend Mum (Petchtai Wongkamlao, "Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior") and Mum's niece Wawa (Jija Yanin Mitananda, "Chocolate").

In "The Kick," Jija Yanin Mitananda (or JeeJa Yanin), star of "Chocolate," appears as a supporting character. She shows what she can do and does it brilliantly in the action scenes, but her screen time is limited. The film's best martial arts fights are provided by Tae-joo Na playing Master Moon's first son Tae Yang, who really wants to be a dancer. The film's subplot about Tae Yang's audition is not very interesting, but his amazing combat scenes are worth your money, with his unique "dance fight" that is both humorous and amazing.

All in all "The Kick" is an entertaining action movie with a few jokes here and there. The story is weak and jokes are corny. Be patient and keep waiting for the action to begin.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining March 21, 2014
By jkt1957
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Not like a big budget martial arts movie but entertaining none the less. Lots of action and as you'll find out in the credits, lots of it turned out to be real but unintentional. Nice job by all the actors involved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun. March 16, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Not quite Kung Fu Hustle, but this movie was still loads of fun. Not sure why Jeeja was in it, given how little importance her character had to the plot (a waste of great talent in my opinion).
