I didn't know what to expect when I clicked play on this movie. I knew it was action and that was all. When the movie started it was very slow making me want to turn it off, but I pushed through to the end and I am glad I did. It got better after about 25 minutes, when the action and mystery started to take place. Good thing there are 2 more movies cause this one did NOT explain anything about the mysterious friend who is now a leader of this group and....yeah this movie was just full of confusion so I hope the next two movies clear at least a few things up for viewers. Overall the acting and music were good~ Don't know if I would ever watch this movie again though...
La actuación de los personajes se mantuvo siempre excelente, enfocados en expresiones reales, mostrándonos a un asesino escalofriante imposible de identificar. La música, estuvo bien adaptada cuando se requería, y los efectos especiales, aunque no fueron los mejores, dieron un reflejo del esfuerzo por hacer de esta historia una obra maestra.
La historia en sí es EX-CE-LEN-TE. No entiendo cómo rayos muchas personas no saben de su existencia.
Me limito a hacer una buena comparación entre Live-action y el manga, pues no me he terminado de leer este último. Pero hasta lo que llevo leído, aseguro que se adapta perfecto.
No he visto las otras dos películas, y es algo que tengo pendiente cuando cuente con el tiempo suficiente para dedicarme a él 100% a la excelencia.
