review by
Mike Haberfelner

Daisy (Jennifer N. Linch) receives a letter that her grandpa (David S. Dawson), whom she has never met, has left her a big house, somewhere in the US. She figures that must mean a lot of money, so she leaves her native Vietnam for the US immediately, even though she hasn't enough money for a return ticket. But once there, Daisy's less than impressed, as grandpa's place has the exact look and feel of a haunted house, and to actually get her hands on the inheritance, she has to stay in the house for seven days and nights - something she's not looking forward to, but then again she has already run out of options. The first night she actually has a run-in with two burglars (Mark Atkinson, Eddie Lain), who tie her up and question her about an "artifact", something she would readily hand over if she had any idea what it was, but the intruders are chased away by some spooky goings-on in the house. And then Daisy comes face-to-face with the local ghosts, grandpa and his best friend David (Noah Sargent), who's charms are not lost on Daisy. It seems they are the guardians of the "artifact", even beyond death, as it's an object that can control life and death. But now a villain named Warren (Rene Fernandez) wants to make the artifact his. Thing is, back when grandpa, David and Warren served in Vietnam, they were given the responsibility for the artifact by a monk, but now that Warren has gone rogue, the artifact needs a guardian more than ever, and grandpa's first choice was of course his granddaughter - but Daisy's just a bubbly girl with no martial arts skills at all, or any other capabilities to "guard" anything. Now grandpa has the ability to possess her and fight in her body, but that's only a temporary thing as he eventually needs to move on - plus Warren knows how to counteract this possession. But with the artifact in Warren's hands, who knows what he might be up to ...

 

Now one thing up front, this is not a film to be taken too seriously, it's made as a comedy, and despite the occasional sappy moment should be enjoyed as such - and that said, Jennifer N. Linch is actually pretty hilarious here, easily carrying the movie even if her delivery isn't always 100% comprehensible. And what makes her performace is that she's not only on point for the funny parts but manages to take herself back in the more emotional scenes. And she's supported by an able cast in on the joke but not veering off into the moronic side of things. On top of that, the execution of the martial arts scenes is actually pretty cool, as the fights show both spirit and inventiveness and fan excitement - and all of this makes Kung Fu Ghost a pretty fun ride for sure!
