First of all, I'm currently reading the manga and I'm a big fan of Miike, so I went to watch it with quite high expectations. Aaand it was good, really good. The bad points: - The dialogues sometimes were sooo very cheesy - Sometimes the acting was a bit...er...too much And now the good: - the story is totally crazy and over the top, but it never takes itself seriously. Yeah, even all the people in the movie think everything happening on screen is absurd. - same goes for special effects: you know it's not just badly done CGI, but something that was meant to be so cartoonish. - there's some gore, but not too much to be unbearable (mind it, the movie is still far from family-friendly, but there's no Koroshiya Ichi-style stuff) - good looking actors everywhere, everywhere! - the characters get some backside stories without being overly dramatic - you can never, never tell what's going to happen next. - it's fast paced, funny and full of suspense from beginning to end! All in all, it's a good take on survival games horror, and I am soo much waiting for a follow up! Not for the fainthearted but I would recommend it to everyone else!
