Ed C (nl) wrote: One line summary: Vigilante action of the formerly bullied against their oppressors.------------------------------------------------ 'Mr Morino committed suicide' is what the opaque opening sequence is about. Hopefully this will resolve. Early on, Morino is just a sixth grade teacher. Also, part of a university lecture is shown discussing 'urban legends' about the bullied getting retribution against the former bullies. The stage is set at 10 minutes in. The question is, who is going to be thrust into the meat grinder? Hideaki is an obvious jerk, and would be my lead candidate. Why his girlfriend, Rikako, puts up with him is hard to see. One finds out toward the end of the movie. Takeshi and Tetsuya were leaders in the stylized bullying done in the sixth grade, and they get to join the festivities. Chie Koizumi was also a contributor. After a bit more stage setting to justify vigilantism, these four wake up in a locked room. They are compelled by two large hooded people with powerful electric shock weapons to play the X game, as explained on tape by the dead Mr. Morino. There are 13 levels of punishment. At each turn, a victim and a perpetrator have to be picked. If the punishment is completed in under 3 minutes, the game goes to the next turn. If not, the loser gets to be branded with a large X, about four inches in diameter; the spokes close to an inch across. This game was played in the sixth grade by the bullies; the main victim was a girl named Mariko Kaburagi. By one means or another, all the contestants are made to remember that fact. One of the final points of the film was made by the character Tadashi Ishimatu: the bullies all forgot about him, but he still has PTSD from the bullying. Not one of the four bullies even remembers him, much less what they did to him. So, this is the vigilante justice mentioned academically in the beginning of the film. How far does the vigilante justice succeed?------Scores-------- Cinematography: 9/10 Excellent in the well-lit scenes; reasonable in the dark ones. Sound: 10/10 OK; fairly good on creepiness. Acting: 7/10 Hirofumi Araki was rather good at being almost clueless to scared out of his wits. Some of the other performances were a bit wooden. Screenplay: 8/10 Had a beginning, middle, and an end. The exposition of motivations was good.-------PS--------Probably the saddest thing I saw about this film was the tone of the comments made on Netflix. About half of them had the same attitudes as the bullies mentioned above: that was ages ago, have you not forgotten? We were just having fun; what's wrong with you?

The computer just wouldn't be able to account for all the variables it does in the film. Stretched my imagination just a little too far. Got into it for the last 45 minutes which was good.
Cheryl C (gb) wrote: The story was worth telling in a film, but it could have been done better. Chris Pine was annoying. While I enjoyed seeing Freddy Rodriguez in something other than Six Feet Under, he didn't add much. Alan Rickman and Bill Pullman were enjoyable to watch although they could have been used better, as well. The story struggled to find a solid footing - overall not a waste of time, but full of missed opportunities.
Dave J (au) wrote: At its best, this is a genuinely sensitive and thoughtful film... which isn't exactly what you might expect from a movie about lesbian vampires. The sex that is there is hot, but it's only a small part of the film, which I suspect is what has disappointed some of the reviewers here. Really it's a movie about the lengths we'll got to for love, and the extreme allowances we can sometimes make for the object of our passion - although, thankfully, most of us don't have to go as far as raiding blood banks for them. The lead actors are fine; some of the supporting cast less so, and the dialogue is of variable quality. But this is a stylish, brave film, and there's some cool Goth music on the soundtrack.

Plenty of action and laughs. Griffith, Sutherland and Lithgow really have fun with this one. Perfect viewing especially if you throw in some beers.

Adrian B (it) wrote: Pretty shocking and alarming documentary of a young boy (Fernando Ramos De Silva) who is abandoned by his parents and ends up in a really rough juvenile detention centre. Within this compound, he strives to get out in which those running the facility torture and even kill his young prison mates if they step out of line in any sort. Befriending obviously the wrong people, he and several others succeed at escaping the centre, only getting into the life of drugs, prostitution, and sadly, murder. Painful and effective examination of kid with no emotions whose future has little to no hope. Seriously graphic at times, especially several of the sequences in which the kid ends killing and or seriously hurting others within the film. This film really works, but word of caution: it may be too much for some people.
