Rating: 3/5 -- The film bounces us from one pugilistic or domestic affray to the next, only coming to a near-standstill whenever Wahlberg gets acting space. It goes to show. Full Review
Financial Times
Feb 2, 2011
Rating: 3/5 -- [A] rickety, unfocused contraption of a film that sputters and chugs along without offering any hint of why its director thought it was worth making. Full Review

Feb 3, 2011
Rating: 3/5 -- This is Bale's movie. The film is at its very best when the Russell's camera is trained upon his hyperactive, ego centric muse. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Russell has taken something tired and familiar and made it rich and exciting once again. Full Review

Both Wahlberg and Bale are excellent in their different registers, as are Melissa Leo and Amy Adams as the differently calibrated women. Full Review

Product Description:

Driven by her conservative, uneducated parents to succeed where they had not, a Turkish immigrant living in Copenhagen does her best to meet mom and dad's high expectations while simultaneously staying true to her passion for kung fu in this action film featuring choreography by CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON's Xian Gao. Aicha (Semra Turan) is a high-school student who finds her time constantly split between her studies and her devotion to the martial arts. Though Aicha's father has forbidden her from joining the elite kung-fu club presided over by a stern sifu, the young girl secretly attends meetings and begins refining her fighting skills. At first questioning of the sifu's practice of having males and females fight one another, Aicha grows more comfortable with the idea after she begins training with advanced student Emil (Cyron Bjorn Melville) and a relationship starts to develop between the sparring partners. Back on the family front, Aicha's older brother, Ali (Nima Nabipour), and his fiancee, Jasmin (Ozlem Saglanmak), begin to worry that Aicha's immodest behavior may somehow jeopardize their upcoming wedding, just as family friend Omar (Behruz Banissi) joins up with the kung-fu club. At first it seems that Omar's presence may prove a disaster for all involved, but if Aicha can learn to take responsibility for her own actions, perhaps her parents will finally come to respect her for who she is, rather than what they want her to be.
