Crows Zero



Director - Takashi Miike

Genre - Action/Comedy


Posturing and glaring. This inane film by Takashi Miike is bursting at the seams with posturing and glaring, all in a hackneyed attempt at being cool. A school without lessons or teachers exists in this manga-adapted story, wherein students brawl for fame and respect. It isn't kung fu either, just mostly fist-fighting without rhyme or reason. At least if it's martial arts, Muay-Thai or kickboxing we'd understand. Strictly for the manga-obsessed fraternity. We'd rather be knitting or playing Jenga.

2 STARS!
