Director Takashi Miike's recreated Hiroshi Takahashi's original comic book that sold more than 32 million copies in Japan. This film is about violence in private institutes. The film presents the story that precedes the comic book. The characters have also been newly re-created. Suzuran High School is also known as The School of Crows. The biggest clique, Serizawa Army and its boss Tamaran Serizawa are challenged by a new student to the school, Kenji Takiya. Takiya, son of a yakuza boss, wants to be the school's ace fighter. But at the advice of Ken Katagiri, a low-ranked start-out yakuza, Takiya starts to muster together a gang of his own. And as he grows into a true leader, he must face an ultimate battle with Serizawa's gang. Through Serizawa and Takiya's battle, director Takahashi shows not only his unique aesthetics for violence but also the true meaning of charisma, friendship, and leadership.

    this is a great movie!
    I'm not a great fan of this type of movie, but I enjoyed the battles and the comic side of the story.
    i really liked the cast,cuz,of course i'm a fan of Shun. I have to say, in this movie he displayed fantastic acting skills.One of his best movie in my opinion. I really loved Yamada Takayuki's acting in this one too. made me wanna see other movies whit him. The music was a plus of adrenalin and I think that there is no one that can complain about this. yes there war some slow dialogues but after all the "movement" I think they ware necessary to digest and even to understand the story.
    A great movie, definitely rewatch this.

    As I watched through the whole thing with some annoying distractions, I was able to finish it with a big fat smile and an urge to punch someone.

    The film was really violent, but not in the violent notorious way. It was rather light for a violent film and with some comedic touches on the sidelines which wasn't really out of place. The graphics and effects were great. The setting, music, plot… especially the cast was perfect. I wouldn't want anyone else to be casted on this film.

    Definitely Oguri Shun has rocked this film!

    I am an Oguri Shun fan but I'm not rating this for being biased, the rating for me fits the whole movie because it was THAT COOL.

    The scene where Makise and Gengi went on a Gokun and Chuta tried to create a scene to help Makise get the girl but then he got hit by Ruka and everyone was screaming "Chuta are you okay?" then Makise said "Idiots don't say his name, they will know we're lying euuuuuuuuuuh": I literally had to pause and laugh for a while.

    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

      Woah! Now you made me curious to hear it in German!
    • pinkcrown Dec 25, 2012
      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! ;)
