High Kick Girl! - Fuyuhiko Nishi (2009)
Wait for it... Wait for it... The action takes a little bit of time to kick in (excuse the pun) in the trailer for Fuyuhiko Nishi's tongue-in-cheek martial arts movie, but when it starts it doesn't stop. Watch Kei, played by Rina Takeda, a gifted karate student go up against the The Destroyers, a gang of unscrupulous scrappers. First Look Studios will be releasing "High Kick Girl!" at the end of March on Region 1 DVD.
