Movie Reviews

Solid Action, Funny Dialogue...Alltogether Charming.
Joshua J. Stackhouse | Chicago, IL | 09/11/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Now before anyone could simply dismiss my comments as invalid, let me say that I enjoy films of all genres. I usually do not enjoy Disney Original movies. However, as an action movie fan I thought this movie was very entertaining.

In response to a few comments earlier made, this film wasnt meant to be a dialogue intense film. It's a Disney take on Asian action films, and its intense choreographed fight sequences, though at some times a bit silly, are a tribute to a style of film that is deeply enrooted in modern asian culture.

The idea of a high-school beauty who stereotypically is obsessed with popularity, looks, and of course shopping is rather endearing. Also noteworthy is the slight commentary on how American culture sometimes easily enables us to forget our previously deeply held cultural heritage and the traditions that come with it.

I particularly enjoyed the scence in which the Wu family is enjoying dinner, and for dessert, the family enjoys Moon Cakes (a traditional Chinese celebratory delicacy). The family all enjoys them, except for the father, who is troubled by the fact that he nearly forgot about the pastry. It later leads him to comment that he "wants to be an ASIAN-American family". I find this comment to be rathe bold for a Disney film.

All in all the film was enjoyable. Particularly silly, but gripping and endearing. I highly recommend this film to anyone looking for a bit of action mixed with silliness.

Brenda Song rocks

"For those who laugh with London, the heiress to the Tipton Hotel at Zack and Cody, this DVD will be a surprise. The story reveals another facet of the actress. Cute, not boring at all. I saw it with my nine-year-old girl."
Girls Rock!

"My 9 year old daughter and I both do martial arts and we both loved watching this movie. The martial arts were well choreographed, and it was great to see a girl go from being all about the clothes to learning that she could kick some serious behind!"
From future homecoming queen to Kung Fu teen.

"Stars Brenda Song & Shin Koyamada did a tremendous job with this movie. Its full of action, good dialogue, and comedic moments. Shin does an extraodinary job like he did in The Last Samurai. Since I'm Asian, I really enjoy the Asian cultural things like the Terracota warriors, Buddhist monks, and Kung fu, even though I'm Japanese. Big fan of Koyamada-san. And its a story of true sacrifice. So, people with the bad reviews, just have fun, geez."
