Content:

(PaPaPa, AP, Ab, B, LLL, VVV, SS, NN, AA, DD, MM) Very strong pagan worldview with a negative depiction of life in America, plus ironic scene mocking Christian faith where married couple with obvious problems say grace to Jesus before a meal, plus protagonist re-writes martial arts school oath to mention freedom, justice, good living, and building “a more peaceful world”; at least 110 obscenities, 18 strong profanities and seven light profanities, plus vulgar content such as man urinates on his wedding ring after wife betrays him a second time; very strong martial arts fighting with blood in one scene, strong punches and kicks (a few against children), and lots of other martial arts practicing and fighting; depicted adulterous sex and crude talk about sex, with child at a party with sexy women in skimpy outfits, including shot of boy with two women rubbing his head; Xerox photos of upper and rear female nudity, plus women in skimpy outfits and upper male nudity; alcohol use and drunkenness; smoking and references to drugs, including shot of boy looking at cocaine on table; and, arrogance and conceit in protagonist who sort of learns his lesson but not quite.

Summary:

THE FOOT FIST WAY is a raunchy low-budget comedy about an arrogant, rude martial arts instructor who curses in front of his young students and has problems with his slutty adulterous wife. There is a lot of excessive, abhorrent content in this supposed comedy.

Review:

THE FOOT FIST WAY is a raunchy low-budget comedy about an arrogant, rude martial arts instructor who curses in front of his young students and has problems with his slutty adulterous wife. His wife leaves him but comes back. He manages to convince his martial arts idol, movie star Chuck “The Truck” Wallace, to make an appearance at the big testing day for his students, but everything goes to pot when he finds his wife and his idol in bed together.

THE FOOT FIST WAY has some very funny moments poking fun at martial arts schools. It also shows the protagonist finally changing, at least a little bit at the end, his conceited macho attitudes. The movie is filled, however, with abundantly gratuitous foul language and many crude sex and drug references. There are also some jokes about children being hurt and brief nudity. The worst part may be the movie’s references to children being near some of the vulgar language and drug content. That content slips into the abhorrent category. It’s hard to see how this disturbing comedy will find a big audience, even among the crowd that likes such R-rated comedies.
