Do you have what it takes to be a winner?
Balls of Fury opens today. There will be winners on screen, there will be winners at the box office, and there will be Christopher Walken–who wins because he gets to play roles like this and have a blast anytime he pleases because he’s Christopher Goddamn Walken.
I mean…seriously, just look at him. What a genius.
Anyway, what about you? Sure, you can win and see the movie, but can you really win something…of substance? Why…yes you can. We’ve got a swagpack. Read on.
First, here’s the bit about the film:
In the unsanctioned, underground, and unhinged world of extreme Ping-Pong, the competition is brutal and the stakes are deadly. Now, this outrageous new comedy serves up this secret world for the first time on-screen. Down-and-out former professional Ping-Pong phenom Randy Daytona (Tony Award winner Dan Fogler) is sucked into this maelstrom when FBI Agent Rodriguez (George Lopez) recruits him for a secret mission. Randy is determined to bounce back and recapture his former glory, and to smoke out his father’s (Robert Patrick) killer â€“ one of the FBI’s Most Wanted, arch-fiend Feng (Academy Award winner Christopher Walken). But, after two decades out of the game, Randy canâ€™t turn his life around and avenge his fatherâ€™s murder without a team of his own. He calls upon the spiritual guidance of blind Ping-Pong sage and restaurateur Wong (James Hong), and the training expertise of Master Wongâ€™s wildly sexy niece Maggie (Maggie Q), both of whom also have a dark history with Feng. All roads lead to Fengâ€™s mysterious jungle compound and the most unique Ping-Pong tournaments ever staged. There, Randy faces such formidable players as his long-ago Olympics opponent, the still-vicious Karl Wolfschtagg (Thomas Lennon). Can Randy keep his eye on the ball? Will he achieve the redemption he craves while wielding a paddle? Is his backhand strong enough to triumph over rampant wickedness?
