Plot Summary

Becoming Canada’s first action hero is Elliot "White Lightning" Scott’s sole motivation. He ambitiously embarks on producing his no-budget karate epic Blood Fight, hot on the heels of his successful genre flick They Killed My Cat. With support from Linda (his girlfriend/cinematographer/producer/caterer), and an outrageous cast, Scott takes a no-holds-barred approach to completing his film.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Watching Elliot and his fellows stumble determinedly through shoots, pleasantly delusional about the movie's prospects, is mildly amusing, a testament to indie film's appeal for a certain hardy strain of dreamer. – Daniel M. Gold, New York Times, Feb 19, 2015

Fresh: An entertaining documentary following two years in the life of an idealistic amateur filmmaker intent on becoming Canada's first action hero. – Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times, Feb 26, 2015

Fresh: Scott nevertheless emerges as an engagingly nerdy dreamer, and Lum makes a useful foil. – Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter, Feb 20, 2015

Rotten: Directors Matthew Bauckman and Jaret Belliveau withhold key information until the third act, forcing one to reevaluate everything that came before, but by then you may already have grown tired of the cheap laughs. – Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, Mar 6, 2015

Very Entertaining; Interesting Twists

I just saw this movie last night at the Canadian premiere at HotDocs in Toronto. It really does stand up there in the tradition of American Movie. The extent of some people’s delusions of grandeur is really mind-boggling! While highly entertaining - huge laughs from the audience at the theatre - it also unfolds in dark and interesting ways that are not at all predictable. Entertaining and skillfully crafted storytelling.

Best. Movie. Ever

It’s like watching a car crash. I couldn’t help but ask myself “Is this for real?”. Super entertaining and unbelievable - definitely worth the time & money. Gonna be watching this yearly.

Instant Cult Classic

If you liked American Movie, you’ll love Kung Fu Elliot. I couldn’t stop thinking about it… It’s unexpected, funny, odd and shocking, which makes for a compelling mix. It’s become an instant favourite, and I can’t wait to see it again and again. I’m still not over the twist ending.
