Note: This review is part three of three in the COTC Nicole Kidman trilogy. Read part one and part two.
Every once in a while, a movie comes along that eludes genre classification. I remember a film called The Doberman Gang, about a group of criminals who train doberman pincers to rob banks. Then there's the George Lucas masterpiece Howard the Duck, in which a war between a planet of walking, talking ducks and a planet of angry space octopi comes to a head in Cleveland. Then there's Watch the Shadows Dance, an Australian import from 1987 about a group of high-school students who spend their school hours learning a punishing form of gymkata from an ex-military gym teacher, and their nights playing a high-stakes ninja paintball game on the empty streets of their city.
