Regal Coming Soon. | Rating: 3/4 It struck me today that this is the Luc Bessoniest movie not made by Luc Besson, starting with the bizarrely high concept, wild tonal shifts, issues with, um, sensitivity, and of course the focus on the kick-assing young woman.

Because when it sticks to the good stuff, this is an eye-popping bit of action that also serves as a love letter to martial arts entertainment, with each segment a tribute to something different, from Bruce Lee to Jackie Chan to samurai/yakuza action to, finally, an 8-bit side-scrolling beat-em-up game.

There was also little animated stuff in the movie which was cool. The climax is pretty rad, especially the sequence on the side of a building (even with mediocre melodrama cutting into it), but there is just no reason for this 92-minute movie to contain almost 32 straight minutes of table-setting and foundation-laying (with the most agonizing ten minutes coming right at the end of this section -- we've already seen her fight a bunch of guys over nothing, why do we need this build up to her fighting a bunch of equally anonymous dudes over something that actually matters?).
