Cast & Credits
Of the positives we have highlights for the performance and great performances in the direction, in spite of the sleepy struggles, also the brutality and violence in the right measure. Negative point the polarization of the end, I liked not a bit of that, and little revelation of the characters during the film, the focus was the present and not the past, but without a past there is no present.
Yuya did SO GOOD at his role. He nails every expressions (he doesn't really talk so that was very important) and really tells us what needs to be said in just a stare!! I'm definitely a fan now!! He's also really hot lol
Suda did great too! The character development was really nicely done, if I haven't seen some clips from the movie beforehand I wouldn't have expected that (I know it's written in the synopsis but I forget them really quickly bc i wanna be surprised while watching haha)! He really suit these kinds of deliquent, uncontrollable & one-tap-away-from-beating-you-up roles!
Nana!! What a bitch! She does it really well!! I wish we could've seen more of her (she does have a lot of scenes but i stan her so it can never be enough for me lol). Once again, chemistry between her and Suda was great (be warned though bc Suda's really abusive on this one).
I'd give it 6.5/10! Some long shots could've been shorter. Plot could've had more substance. Though, I interpret it as watching a boy spiral down towards destruction. It was enough for me to go on with the story.
Ps. Nijiro is here too! He did great as well! Him and Yuya coukd really pass as brothers visually. I wish I could've seen more of him too.
Also, the ending was great, gave me goosebumps.
