My thoughts… That girl (Julia Hourahine) is bad-ass! She could be Canada’s next big female action star! Wait… Are there any existing female Canadian action stars for Hourahine to be the next one? I don’t know. Anyway, the fight choreography in STREETFIGHT! is a little better but both of these films are awesome! I can’t wait to see Break Room! The teaser trailer for the upcoming short film looks more like a teaser trailer for a feature film! Does it hurt a girl as much as a boy to get punched in the groin like that [watch at 00:46]?! Oh, and I love that cover of Nirvana‘s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”! Who sings that?!
