Several months after "Crows: Episode 0" trouble brews again when thugs known as "The Army of Killers" from rival high school Hosen Academy threaten Suzuran High aka the School of Crows. The ruthless Hosen gang go after Suzuran alumni Sho Kawanishi after his release from the reformatory for killing a Hosen member two years back. Kawanishi turns to his younger Suzuran gang members for protection. The Housen gang then seeks outright revenge on the entire Suzuran school, while in-fighting at Suzuran High makes them even more susceptible to the Housen threat.
Cast & Credits
So who was the best example in the film to show how a real man should act? It was Genji's father. Damn! I so love the old man.
Rival gangs are always not my cup of tea when watching violent movies but CROW ZERO II worked on me. BIG TIME. There was still a lot comparison from the first movie and so many differences, yet it still worked. It was still as good as CROWS ZERO I can get. If not the best it is really GOOD. Oguri Shun still got to me that he now holds a real special place in my heart. His character as Genji-san shall never be forgotten.
The soundtrack was perfect even for the fighting scenes. I love how they have incorporated the music in crucial moments. That's one thing that I love with Japanese films, they use the music in the right moments.
Although there was a tiny speck of dust that I didn’t like in the film, it still made me understand that without it the whole new story for CZ II will not start. So I am letting that go.
Music: Another amazing soundtrack, just like the first movie.
Cast/Acting: I’ve seen Oguri Shun act in several movies and dramas. He does alright in romantic comedies and such. But I truly think he shines the best when he plays a serious character like Genji. Everyone did such an amazing job, there were even parts that made me laugh.
