Disappointment
7 January 2017 | by mobpSee all my reviews

If you liked "Cure" or "Pulse" you will be disappointed by this movie. It seems like Kurosawa lost his "magic". This is a very average movie, nothing you haven't seen before. The camera-work and acting is great but the movie and the whole plot was a huge letdown to me. What made Kurosawas movies great was that they had this unique idea, this special feeling, something you couldn't really put in words. This movie is just very predictable. To me it wasn't "Creepy" at any point. Throughout the whole movie I was hoping for it to pick up the pace and develop this unique feeling which made Kurosawas movies so great - it never happened. Very early in the movie you could tell whose the Badguy and in which direction this movie is heading. If you want to see Kurosawa at his peak watch "Cure" or "Pulse". If you have seen them already take "Retribution" or "Charisma". This one was a letdown to me.
