On the surface, it is ridiculous premise, one we only see coming from Japan and love it for it. However, deep down, it is a typical troubled class high school drama. I'd say it's like mixing Gokusen with Dragon Zakura. As a manga adaptation, I can see how the drama looks and sounds so ridiculous because it's live action. Some events may still appear ridiculous in the manga, but when it's live read more action, it shows 110%. I think the movie did a great job of taking this point to his consideration, making it a fun watch,

The acting is pretty decent overall, where needs to be. Having Shiina Kippei keeping a straight face within such a ridicule event is hilarious. That guy is hilarious overall, but he can manage cool roles as well. Our protagonist Yamada Ryosuke managed to keep us interested in his character while keepincg himself out of the spotlight. It is weird that sometimes it feels he doesn't have much presence and I think that was the intention with the character to begin with. Conversely Masaki Suda was the one overshadowed everyone just by being on screen. He played a badass character and he played it coolly.

Like most school shows, there was a lot about working together to achieve a certain goal, getting motivated to look for different path and whatnot. It does give important lessons in an interesting way. There are also politics, like school unfairness they have to deal with and having a back plan in life to fall back to so there is always hope to succeed.

Overall enjoyable, not too preachy, decent performance and well casted. If anything I think it'll be entertaining and and fun to watch. I can't wait for the sequel ;)

I watched this movie today for the second time after some months so I thought “Why not writing a review.”
I’ll leave aside the plot, you all know it.
Let’s start by saying that I heard a lot of people saying that this movie is a little bit sloppy.
I didn’t watch the anime nor I have read the manga.
When it comes to live action based on manga otaku or just read more big fans of the story like to complain about the cast and the adaptation.
In this case I think it wasn't needed.
The cast, a pretty young one (not talking about Suda and Yamada) , is a good cast.
Suda, played Karma amazingly.
Talking about him, I’m always satisfied with his acting. He’s one of the best young actors in Japan ( if I had to make a list, I think he will rock the first place to be honest), and this time too He proved that he can easily play a cold and sarcastic character without being boring.
He had few scenes but He has done them all well.
Talking about Yamada, he’s amazing and it’s such a shame that he played a boring character like Nagisa.
A lot of people bashed his acting here but I think that he’s not at fault. His performance was good, extremely good, but I think that this character wasn’t meant for him.
He’s so talented, his acting skills were wasted on Nagisa.
And now, Kazunari.
I will recommend this movie just for his amazing job as a dubber.
He was the main star here, overshadowing even Yamada and Suda.
I hate seeing people calling him “ a pretty average actor” because in this movie you can feel his charisma just by hearing his voice.
He wasn’t physically there but you could tell what his facial expressions were or his moves just by hearing is warm and nasty voice.
In conclusion, I’ll give this movie 7 out of 10 because it was well made.

This doesn’t look like a review at all. Just my thoughts on this movie.

    Ridiculous on the surface made wonderfully tolerable by the message it's trying to convey.

    I haven't read the manga or watch the anime but i like this movie.....the plot is ridiculous on the wtf-japan-seriously level but theres drama here if you watched that twist near the end. Acting not that special even suda masaki is here, but its a manga type of drama/movie so no complain on my part.

    Yeah and the cgi is nicely done...

    8.5/10

    Watched it and I'd like to say the anime is far more enjoyable. There had also been some setting changes and some characters weren't introduced.
