Kenji (Hayate) is on the hunt for his sister Mayumi (Mana Sakura), who has disappeared without a trace. He is a driven man however, so he is determined to find her and return her to safety, regardless of what that entails. His mastery of the martial arts won't hurt either, as he will face off with some nasty folks by the end.

Bulletproof Action - Karate Kill Review
By Kirk Geiger on Jul 28, 2017 at 05:46 PM in Kirk Geiger's Press, Karate Kill

I have learned a lot in my time on Earth but one thing that is possibly the important is that anything can be accomplished in life using one’s own mastery of karate. That is obviously something that director Kurando Mitsutake has known for some time as he’s continued to show love for the martial arts going back to Samurai Avenger: The Blind Wolf.

Karate Kill is yet another slice of cinematic madness from Mitsutake, one that harkens back to the days of Godfrey Ho’s choppily-edited ninja movies, the epics of Sonny Chiba and those grainy VHS-era relics of kung-fu cinema that inspired a generation of filmmakers (and rappers, cough, Wu-Tang Clan, cough).

If you are unfamiliar with the work of writer and director Kurando Mitsutake, it is time for you to remedy that situation. Kurando has directed four films – Monsters Don’t Get to Cry (2007) , Samurai Avenger: The Blind Wolf (2009, and Kurando plays the lead as well as doing the writing and directing duties), Gun Woman (2014) and Karate Kill (2016 but just had its United States release on July 18 of this year) and each film is better than the last, as you would expect as he gains experience.

Revenge flicks are like soft ice cream dispensers at an all-you-can eat movie buffet. You can fill up on your dramas and your romances and your high-brow comedies, but what you really came here for is the sweet stuff, and most revenge films tap right into that craving with tons of action, lots of great motivation, and usually some hyper-graphic violence that leap well over the line of good sensible taste.

"Top marks in that department for Kirk Geiger’s Charles Manson style cult leader in charge of Capital Messiah, a truly nasty bad guy who rantings and ravings are the polar opposite of the silent but deadly protagonist Keiji."
