A Huge Comedy with Tiny Balls.
|Down-and-out former professional ping-pong phenom, randy daytona, is sucked into a maelstrom when fbi agent ernie rodriguez recruits him for a secret mission. Randy is determined to bounce back and win, and to smoke out his father's killer -- arch-fiend feng.|
"Stupendously silly but viciously funny. Kamal AL-Solaylee, The Globe and Mail
"The movie flaunts its ridiculousness and offers a relentless string of jokes about blindness, groin-bashing, and bodily odors. Mark Feeney, Boston Globe
Editor's NoteIt's ping-pong played to the death in this balls-out comedy: Dan Fogler stars as pong child prodigy and Def Leppard-devotee Randy Daytona, whose defeat at the hands of a hissy East German (Thomas Lennon) during the 1988 Olympics forced him leave the world of ping-pong competition in disgrace. Randy's life is a shambles until he gets recruited by CIA agent (Barry Lopez) to infiltrate an ENTER THE DRAGON-style ping-pong tournament (to the death), run by an evil triad leader (Christopher Walken). First Randy needs to get back in shape; enter James Hong (BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA) as the blind ping-pong master Wang and Maggie Q as his sexy, kung fu-fighting niece. While FURY is a consistently funny comedy it also manages to sluly infuse some intelligence and compassion into its steady stream of genre spoofery and lowbrow crotch gags (similar in that sense to Mel Brooks' BLAZING SADDLES). Fogler has an engagingly scruffy underdog-style warmth and seems to really connect with the older pros like Walken and Hong; there's the sense everyone had a good time making this film, which carries over to the audience. Director Robert Ben Garant knows when to speed up the action and when to give his actors room to stretch out; the result is a generous spirit where all the cast is allowed to grab their share of the laughs. There's also some awesome Def Lepard tunes on the soundtrack, and Maggie Q is one smokin' hot babe.

|Sometimes a movie is just better as a title and a trailer. They should just leave well enough alone and not release the actual film. Balls of Fury, a spoof featuring table tennis matches to the death, looked amusing when the trailers were shown earlier in the year. The title, while not exactly sophisticated, is good for a titter. The movie, unfortunately, is not ...read the full review|
