The beginning of the movie didn`t impressed me because I got the feeling that this movie will end up like Gokusen(Drama), same concept; a bunch of delinquents fighting each other but then I was wrong! The movie eventually trail into a story about punk kids fighting for reign over their high school. There were also a handful of unexpected hilarious and quirky parts that added to the enjoyment of this 2hr movie of violent action. The cinematography was brilliant, from the fighting scenes to the use of umbrellas at the end. Takashi Miike’s style, shot choices, and pacing are dead on perfect. Crows Zero is based on the hugely popular manga called Crows. Miike does inject some manga like trademarks into the film and they are a whole lot of fun. Crows Zero also delivers some amazing fight scenes. However, fighting is not all the film is about, it’s also about freindship and honor. Miike uses these themes extremely well, you may even feel your heart strings being tugged at in a few scenes.
Takashi Miike fan, or you enjoy watching Gokusen(Anime and drama like I do!) do yourself a favor and check it out immediately! ;)
