Format: DVD
I found this movie purely on a general browse through all the latest releases and found this. Having never heard of any background information about this movie and realising that the director had also directed such amazing epics such as Azumi and the ever popular Versus i thought i would give this movie a try. The front cover also looked very inticing so i embraced it with such optimism, and thinking that this was going to be a samurai action flick (Telling by the front cover) i was very surprised to realise that its a very spiritual movie based on the choices made in the afterlife and the accomplishent of good over evil. It is also a strong romantic and emotional movie with a message of the choices that you make in life.
The movie itself is taken from the popular japanese tv series of the same name which is also taken from the manga comic and was made in to a movie after such a high demand by the fans.
The storyline itself which i wasnt expecting is of a spiritual fantasy when an evil force takes the lives of a specific person and takes away their heart shown graphically in the scenes, but nothin too gory from the likes of what the director hasnt shown us before. Anyway the purose of this is to ressurrect the evil guys one true love and each heart that is taken gives him superhuman powers. But however, one of those hearts he succeeds in taken is of the leading characters role named Mino(a very cute actress i might add)also played in princess blade. She is then transferred to the afterlife where she has to make three choices. Her lover then seeks his revenge upon her death. I wont say anything more as i dont wanna spoil anything...

if like me you were expecting blood and death all over the place like versus and azumi then you will be disappointed
this is a much slower relationship based film and as such it works very well
as an action film it fails on almost every level as the direction is still superb but the actors look very uncomfortable in these sections
the story is tragic and beautifully told and the real winner and surprise offering here
when they are unarmed the actors do a cracking job and reduced my better half to tears at its conclusion
this film really does pack quite a punch
yes ok it may be a little bit too long and the action is disappointing but the real emphasis is away from action and into the people and with that in mind it succeeds in droves
well worth a look

This is a pretty good film,a bit slow getting going,but the swordfights when they come are worth waiting for.T he story focuses on love and reincarnation more than action,but there is still a fair amount of action.An interesting little film.

A complex structure in the storyline kept me focusing on the dialogue, while the visuals, swordsmanship and action drew me away into the excitement of the film. An exhausting but immensely enjoyable experience. Recommended

This movie takes a long time to get going, pretty much the first forty minutes could be EASILY condensed down to make them take twenty. It really didn't need that long to set everything up since when I hit the forty minute mark I felt like I was a few hours in because it dragged so much and was just dull.

However, after the forty minute mark, the film takes a turn for the better. The plot advances quickly, some actual action takes place, we see some of the more Supernatural elements of the film. It really gets better. Although some of the sword-fights take a while to actually get to the actual fight, there is a moment between two female characters where they both just prance around a room for ten minutes making various ridiculous poses and maybe one or twice striking each others blades, after this however it really does pick up and leads to some of the best moments in the movie.

The acting and directing are both below what I would expect, some of the camera work is also excessively shoddy. Although, one actor stands out above the rest by a pretty huge margin, the guy who played the villain. My god, he did a simply amazing job, y'know how I can tell? I HATED that guy, he made me want to strangle him, I found myself muttering "Go on, die. Just get shot. Just die" during his fight scenes because the actor played him so well that I just couldn't stand him, he just needed to die.

Overall, not a bad movie, not an amazing one, but it will stay on my shelf and I'll probably give it a re-watch every now and again.

Manga lovers should give Kitamura a chance.
Sky High is about those who are killed and reach a place that offers them the chance to go on and be re-incarnated or haunt the world in search of the truth, mainly that which killed them.
Ok I am biased toward Ryuhei Kitamura, since his awesome movie Versus. Many people miss the point of his films, he is simply trying to make Live Manga movies and he does an ok job. I do actually wish they were a bit better, they can be a little weak, but other offerings in this field are sooooo much worse.
Sky High is quite a typical Manga storyline and apart from the main girl character being quite hopeless at fighting, it really is quite a good offering of the genre.
I look forward to seeing Sky High 2.
I also recommend his movies:
'Versus' Zombies vs Yakuza in the Forest of Resurrection;
'Alive' a sci-fi set inside a large prison room experiment in which 2 inmates have to co-habit peacefully.
'Aragami', also set in 1 room, a beautiful ancient Japanese Temple in the mountains inhabited by an ancient demon.
For other manga novel, live movie offerings, try out Higuchinskey's 'Uzumaki' and 'The Long Dream'. Both surreal takes on famous Manga novels. More More More!
