The Japanese story of the school crime boss and Yakuza lacks the intelligence and subversive attitude of the original film and is essentially a teenage novel.
Thirty-five years later, teenage idol Hiroko Yakushimaru returned to the yakuza genre by spraying a room full of bullets with a shrill scream of "Kaikan!", The head of the Izumi class makes his return. But "Sailor Suit and Machine Gun: The Graduation" is a pale and read more clean imitation of its predecessor without any sacred or subversive attitude.
Basically we have the protagonist young student Izumi (Kanna Hashimoto) who inherited the family Medaka yakuza after her uncle ends up murdered in front of her. The war was declared, yet there was a cease-fire with the Hamaguchi family but a nefarious plans of a powerful conglomerate will shake this ceasefire atmosphere.
While the 1981 original was an irreverent turn in the violent and violent crime films of the period, Koji Maeda's late reboot is essentially a teenage romance with occasional screams.
Generally speaking the film's biggest problems are with tone and rhythm, however, as it tinkers with 118 minutes of light camouflage before reaching its disappointingly predictable conclusion. What could have been a joyous happy trigger of what I call rebirth of a forgotten cult classic instead fails completely by diluting its source material beyond recognition.
