Review: KARATE KILL Earns A Black Belt in Boring Filmmakimg
As a filmmaker, we, subconsciously or not, want to offer tribute or call upon our inspirations on why we strap a camera to our hands and eyes in the first place. At the same time, genre of old should just stay where they are, in the loving memory of nostalgia.
The problem is that there's no mood to make in this film with its simple plot nor at any time does the protagonist feel that time was of the essense. It showed more of Kenji silently walking from destination to another to serve as the film's only idea of scene transition. Seriously, there was more walking than fighting in this film. That's another sign of lazy filmmaking.
Karate Kill arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray on July 18 from Petri Entertainment.
