YesAsia Editorial Description

Bayside Shakedown director Motohiro Katsuyuki and Hong Kong comedy king Stephen Chow join forces for the Shaolin Soccer spin-off Shaolin Girl. Though Stephen Chow himself only clocks in as executive producer, he's lent his usual cast members to the film including Lam Chi Chung and Tin Kai Man from Shaolin Soccer and Kitty Zhang from CJ7. To seal the friendly crossover of Chinese and Japanese cinema, there's also Eguchi Yosuke who recently appeared in Silk, Okamura Takashi from No Problem 2, and Nakamura Toru from Gen-X Cops in deliciously evil mode. Of course, pride of place goes to popular actress Shibasaki Kou (Dororo) who stretches her legs and hams it up with utmost sincerity. Add in the colorful comedic support, galore of straight-faced ridiculousness, and blowout finale, and this over-the-top Japanese take on Hong Kong action comedy deserves a genre of its own.

After completing her training at Shaolin Temple, kung fu disciple Rin (Shibasaki Kou) returns to her quiet Japanese hometown hoping to spread Shaolin kung fu to the masses. But it turns out her former master Iwai (Eguchi Yosuke) has long closed the dojo and is now running a Chinese noodle dig instead. Waitress Minmin (Kitty Zhang) convinces Rin to join her university's lacrosse team instead where she can apply her kung fu to sports. Rin, however, isn't very good at lacrosse or at controlling her own powers, a weakness that could spell disaster if exploited by the wrong people. Recognizing her great power, the phenomenally (and inexplicably) evil university president (Nakamaru Toru) launches a nefarious plan to bring Rin to the dark side.

Director : Katsuyuki Motohiro

Her name is Rin Sakurazawa (played by Ko Shibasaki). After she returns to Japan, she makes her way to a Shaolin Kung Fu traning hall, which her grandfather built in a quest to introduce Shaolin Kung Fu to Japan. But the training hall is now in disrepair, the trainees having scattered when it shut down. Rin wants to find out why. She tracks down her senior trainees and finds her teacher Kenji Iwai (Yosuke Eguchi), who now owns a Chinese restaurant in the city. She is shocked by what he has become. She asks him what happened to the training hall. But he doesn’t tell her, and just repeats that he has abandoned Shaolin Kung Fu. Rin tells him that the only place she should be is at the training hall.

Shaolin Girl Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I saw the trailer for this movie and it looked interesting to watch so i decided to purchase it.
After it arrived, i watched the entire movie and I was stunned, this movie is quite good, from your averaging school girl to Shaolin girl.
This fighting doesn't really happen till much later in the movie but least I didn't get bored of it.
A enjoyable Japanese movie for all ages and there is English subtitles which makes it even better for those of you who don't know Japanese.

Inconsistency, thy name is "Shaolin Girl" Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
In "Shaolin Girl", Shibasaki Kou stars as Rin, the granddaughter of the master of a martial arts dojo, who at an early age is packed off to Shaolin Temple. Nine years later, with her grandfather now in the grave, she returns to her Japanese hometown to find the dojo closed and dilapidated. Her mission in life is to restore the dojo and introduce Shaolin techniques to Japan. Miss Shibasaki plays her role with an amusingly grim determination ... and looks absolutely gorgeous.

Rin finds Iwai (Eguchi Yosuke), her old martial arts master, working as a cook in a Chinese restaurant -- and looking just like Jack Sparrow. She fails in her attempt to interest him in reopening the dojo. Beautiful waitress Minmin (Kitty Zhang), after seeing a bit of Rin's skills, invites her to join her university's lacrosse team. It's a rather peculiar school; we never see anyone studying. The emphasis appears to be on developing world-class athletes -- for reasons never explained in the English subtitles -- and the university's president clearly has malevolent purposes for the entire enterprise (again unexplained).

Rin quickly is admitted to the school and added to the lacrosse team, where her astounding martial arts skills dominate play to the detriment of the team. Rin is benched by the coach and humiliated. She and her teammates then spend hours in disciplined training, emerging as an unbeatable, tightly-knit lacrosse-playing machine. Next, out of nowhere, the story shifts bizarrely into Tomb Raider mode, with Rin becoming a kind of Lara Croft doing battle against the empire of evil created by the university president. This transition is so jarring that it seems hard to imagine that the filmmakers didn't realize the mistake that they'd made.

When "Shaolin Girl" basically echoes "Shaolin Soccer", it is a light, funny, entertaining film. However, the battle against the evil university president simply does not belong in this movie. Don't blame Shibasaki Kou; she is great throughout the film. Kitty Zhang provides a pleasant presence. The attempts at comedy from Lam Chi Chung and Tin Kai Man fall flat. I will watch this film multiple times because Shibasaki Kou is so good, but, unless you -- like me -- are a big fan of hers, I can't really recommend "Shaolin Girl". (By the way, check out the Tsui Hark film "All About Women" if you really want to see Kitty Zhang shine.)
