I was really unsure about buying this film, as it seems that most of the reviews given are written by people who either loved the film, or hated it. However, I realised that this was the same with Azumi- one of my favourite films, and seeing as it was cheap, I bought `Versus' nevertheless. And I LOVED it.

The story is that two prisoners have escaped and are waiting for a getaway vehicle in the woods. However, when the getaway car arrives (Filled with really cool Yakuza) it also contains a woman, who, along with one of the prisoners, is the key to opening a portal in the forest. The forest they are in is known as `the forest of resurrection', because whoever dies there, comes back to life as a zombie. As the prisoner flees (the other prisoner is killed) with the woman into the woods, dead bodies that were dumped by the Yakuza come to `life' for some of the greatest and funniest action scenes I've seen in a long time. It turns out that the prisoner and woman are reincarnated people who are needed in some ritual to open the portal. (The problem with explaining all this is that none of the characters have names).

The characters are, in one word: cool. Tak Sakaguchi plays a great (and handsome) lead role as `the dark hero'- it's great to see a hero who isn't completely good. Hideo Sakaki is a great villain- strong and powerful. There are also Kenji Matsuda and Minoru Matsumoto who play the comical Yakuza who create a good few laughs. Kenji is particularly funny to watch when he has become a `hyper-zombie'- hilarious. Then, there are the two cops from which the prisoners escaped played by Shoichiro Masumoto and Yukihito Tanikado, who are entertaining as you watch them bumble about. I couldn't mention the word `cool' without talking about the character played by Yuichiro Arai.

When I first rented this dvd, the girl in the shop smiled and said she liked the time I returned it, I'd watched it repeatedly and after I'd handed it over, I immediately scoured the dvds for sale box for my own copy.

If the story feels like they were making it up as they went along - that's because they were. It was filmed over a long period because the budget kept running out and they could only afford to film in the ski resort off peak season. The cast took turns cooking, in between takes they wrapped themselves in blankets because it was so cold, the zombies are mostly the director's friends. The acting is...well, in the commentary, the director complains about his leading man - who is sitting next to him - but you can't deny the characters have personality.

So the film is mostly about fighting. It's called Versus, it does what it says on the tin. Samurai vs zombies, escaped criminals versus yakuza, yakuza versus zombies - all of it filmed with style. And it's the sort of film which divides opinion. You can complain about the plot, the acting or you can just enjoy the craziness of it all.

So what do you get for your extra cash? You get the dub (worth listening to in order to pick out the bits they didn't dub - Japanese guys do the best evil giggles) and a better version of the subtitles - no more "you have finished with your roll" - although part of the charm of the original was imagining the buffet just out of shot. You get ten extra minutes of footage - these aren't deleted scenes - those who were available went back to the forest and shot extra bits which they then slotted seamlessly into the original. Plus they added a bit of blood here, neated up an effect there, changed some of the music...

The title of this review tells you everything you need to know. Or rather, it doesn't tell you much about the movie, but if you like the idea of a movie with a battle between zombies and the Yakuza, then you're going to like Versus. Also, it has a cover with a guy in a leather coat toting a gun and a sword - you just know that's a good sign, right?

If you don't mind a totally flimsy and rediculous plot, and like a bit of slapstick with your mindless violence, then this is a movie for you. I initially got this from Amazon rentals, but it was such a hit in our household that we subsequently bought it, and it's been watched about once every other month.

Also, for some strange reason the "I'm a feminist" line cracks me up every time.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
A mysterious unnamed escaped convict fleeing through the forrest of ressurection stumbles across a mottley group of yakuza thugs, a beautiful girl and a whole boatload of heavily armed zombies. Thus ensues a battle between good and evil that seemingly never ends, against an enemy who seems unkillable. The question you need to ask yourself when watching however, who is the good guy?
Ryuhei kitamura, director of azumi and the pretty decent clive barker film midnight meat train mad his debut with this ultra low-budget action horror hybrid that hit dvd in the uk some years ago now. The film has built up a loyal fanbase over the years, with an 'ultimate cut' special edition released a few years back with additional scenes and boatloads of extras.The films popularity stems from it being really rather good with plenty of frantic action, boatloads of gore and some genuinelly funny humour. Now it seems, the film is due a blu-ray release, I can assure you the film is very good the question is, is the blu-ray?

The answer is a reserved yes. In terms of picture the whole package has definately been upgraded, showing up damage in the print and grain in the image. I always felt the tokyo shock discs never looked as good as the uk tartan one, but this is still better than the previous releases in spite of some of the faults. The version released is the 119 minutes theatrical verson (slightly longer for the uk before anyone comments) and this is a good thing for me as I never really cared much for the extended cut. Extras wise we get two commentary tracks, several documentary's and featurettes plus 'nervous' short film.

Overall if you like the film check it out, if the image had been somewhat sharper i'd have rated this five stars but it's still the best presentation of the film sofar.
