Largely unfunny martial arts spoof
19 December 2009 | by gridoon2019See all my reviews

"Awesome Lotus" is a martial arts spoof in the style of "Airplane!" or, more appropriately, "They Call Me Bruce?". The opening sequence, chronicling the "origin" of the title character, from put-down farmer girl to wise martial arts mistress and secret agent, is rather promising, and so is the title sequence. But the rest of the movie does not live up to that promise. There are some wacky, bizarre ideas (Awesome Lotus even walks on water at one point!), but the gags are too often mistimed or misfired. Also, given the setup, there is a surprising lack of martial arts (there is only one fight sequence in the entire film), which is kind of a shame, because the fighting, while obviously cartoonish, is actually not that bad for a spoof. Mostly harmless, but also mostly unfunny, this film is forgotten today, and not undeservedly. *1/2 out of 4.
