(us) wrote: One line summary: Teens confront abandoning their friend in a haunted labyrinth.-------------------------------------------------------------------------- From the opening scene, one gets a brick in the face: this film is loaded with supernatural nonsense. A stuffed rabbit floats through the air, seemingly of its own accord; the rabbit can proceed effortlessly through solid walls, plural. Rin, Ken, Yuki, Miyu, and Motoki were at an amusement park when they were young, in particular in a mostly dark labyrinth. Something bad happened there. In the present, Rin is blind, Yuki is presumed dead. However, Yuki shows up at Rin's door. Rin calls Ken and Motoki. It does seem to be Yuki; she claims she's been in a hospital for all these years. They find Yuki's younger sister Miyu at the old family home. While the group was talking, Yuki bolts up to her old room; there they see the stuffed rabbit that was with them in the labyrinth. The rabbit shows a few supernatural signs, and Yuki bolts out again, this time to fall down the stairs. The group takes Yuki to the hospital. Sigh. Twenty minutes in. The rest of the film is about getting to a doctor; well, at least at first. The teenagers confront all sorts of obstacles after they arrive at the hospital. Where are the nurses? Where are the doctors? Where are the emergency staff, and so on? Then Yuki runs away and they cannot find her. What trauma dramas do they need to resolve before they leave this shared nightmare? That is what the last 68 of 88 minutes is about. Layer upon layer upon layer of hallucinatory experiences are dumped on the four teens.-----Scores------Cinematography: 0/10 In the second scene, the Blair Witch bovine scatology starts. Why the director chooses to go back and forth between trash and splendor (10% of the film is absolutely beautiful) in the visuals is not clear. The credits and subtitles all look fine and professional. It is unfortunate that they have to be conjoined to the wretched camera work. Sound: 10/10 As good as the visuals are bad; creepy and atmospheric.Acting: 8/10 Reasonably good.Screenplay: 6/10 This is a 10 minute short. Why drag it out to 88 minutes? The endless repeated flashbacks do not add anything except irritation.Special Effects: 8/10 This is a mixed bag, but more often than not, the SFX look fine.

(ag) wrote: I do like the star of this film, Lieh Lo, who's appeared in some quality marital arts action flicks like "Five Fingers of Death" and "The 36th Chamber of Shaolin," but this film felt like a quickie ripoff of "The Flying Guillotine." Like that film, this one revolves around Lo retrieving medicine for a corrupt government official, for a case of the most bizarre looking cancer ever. Lo uses his Dragon Missile (basically a metal bladed boomerang) much like Jimmy Wang Yu used his Flying Guillotines, though the fight sequences here seem workmanlike and without a lot of originality or flair. They're not badly made, but really don't seem to offer anything special. Overall, the film is fast paced, has plenty of action, has good production values, but doesn't really offer much originality or anything all that special. Worth checking out for martial art fans, but there is certainly better stuff out there.

"When Harry Met Sally" is absolutely a classic in not only the romantic comedy genre, but in the world of cinema in general, and I can't stand that it took me so long to check it out. It's an instant classic for anyone who hasn't checked this one out yet. 9.0/10
(mx) wrote: A non-stop action/animation sequel to the original 1985 film. The animation in this film flows beautifully with the intense story created for the film, and the English dub includes a powerful voice-acting cast that gives the characters more detail than the first. I recommend this film to both anime and vampire fans.
