Demekin reminded me of High and Low series, and not because Yamada Yuki was the lead of the movie. The story was packed with action scenes, fighing and blood. The vibe was a bit strange at first, but you get used to it. The plot begins with the two boys playing around and then it just narrates the journey of the main character and how he became the leader of a gang. So, for a gang-action-fighting movie, this one was good. However, the story itself was just okay. I guess the visuals and the performances were those that supported this movie rather than the plot line. So seven out of ten.

I honestly don't know what it is about Demekin that feels a bit superficial tbh. Something about the relationships is very surface level but it's entertaining for the most part. It was mostly about friendship between the two main leads but I felt like they were not very expressive toward each other in the right way, they kept saying a bunch of stuff but you don't feel their bond. They just didn't do it right imo so it just fell flat on the whole. Over Drive with Mackenyu suffers from the same but at least the way Over Drive is made is very entertaining and especially Mackenyu not only sold me on his character but you see that love hate thing going on in his eyes, so you feel it too. But Demekin was very trite and even annoying in places. But the final showdown that was done well and so is the violence and most of the action so like I said, it's not terrible either but you won't be missing anything if you didn't watch it.
