I've not seen so many good scenes of battle for many months. The movie has the great beginning. Actually, these moments of fight and soundtrack are the biggest trumps of this production. The main character, played by Oguri Shun has surprised me too. I coudn't imagine this actor in t a h a t role earlier. What is more, he did it the best! The huge appreciation.

In spite of all read more these benefits, there are some boring moments. The dialogues were so.. uninteresting.

Okay so my friend was the one who originally wanted me to watch this movie, and I went into it knowing nothing. Like nothing about a typical Japanese fighting movie, nothing about Shun Oguri *le gasp* like NOTHING. So I think that my opinion is a pretty fair one.

After saying that, I'll now state that this is one of my favorite movies...EVER.

The story was great; newbie wanting to make a read more name for himself in a tough school where fighting is how you get anywhere or get anything done. I haven't really seen this story anywhere so the plot seem relatively fresh and interesting while still staying relatively simple. The music was nothing extraordinary. Just your typical fighting music, but it wasn't bad and was good for the scenes.

And come on we can't fail to mention the EXTREME eye candy that is present in this movie. I mean seriously holy Shisus there are some fine men in this movie. And while this is what initially caught my attention, it is not the reason I freaking adore this movie.

The best thing is the acting. Yeah Oguri is a tough bad boy who wants to prove himself, there is a quality in his character that automatically makes you love him. He is also real and genuine and doesn't put on pretenses. In many ways he reminds me of Nakatsu from Hana no Kimi. You get the same feel from both of them even though they are also different in many ways.

Overall A++++

Make a Recommendation Recommendations

Both have similar underlying values about fighting to be the leader of the school. Friendship between leader and best friend are also a strong focus. Crows zero is like a serious, mature-audience version of Shiritsu Bakaleya Koukou.

Both are drama's about school boys fighting each other, finding friends and love. Bad boys J is less serious than Crows Zero

    Well, I'm always surprised as to HOW GOOD SHUN looks in these school uniforms.. :'D
    Seriously.. Just put him in a school uniform and I'll watch it. xD
    Good movie nonetheless. I was so surprised to see it in German TV.. well it was really late but nonetheless, it's dubbed in German and wow. :D

      Well.. the dubbing was okay I guess... better than the dubbing for TOP in Into The Fire.. :'D But I was just completely shocked (positively) that it was dubbed in German and was actually in German TV. :D

      Oh yeah, that's super cool! I'm always happy when they dub a Japanese movie (even if the dubbing itself is so and so) because in that way a lot more people who wouldn't bother with subtitles can watch them!

    I admit I watched it just because everyone was saying it was great (and, uhm...Oguri Shun), but I fell in love! It's funny, it has awesome action scenes and the soundtrack...oh, the soundtrack!
    So, you people who don't know what it's all about...just watch it, it won't let you down! ;)
