Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tokyo Zombie [DVD] (DVD)
It did sound good-zombies and Ju-Jitsu but under no circumstances buy this. I have a number of kung-fu films which are so bad they're good but this is so bad it's bad.At one stage I thought I'd bought a male porn film as it went seriously weird. I don't think I understand Japanese humour and I don't think I want to if this is an example-I'm still stunned........

sorry you had such a disappointing experience - I totally agree with you and gave up on the film after an hour it was so awful. However don't give up! There are many much better films to check out - Tadanobu Asano is usually a wonderful actor and I'd strongly recommend you take a look at Survival Style 5+, Ichi The Killer or Last Life in the Universe for a better example of what he can do. Gambatte kudasai!

Wow, a lot of people really don't like this movie.
I enjoyed it but like I said in another comment I left on here, Asano and Aikawa are two of my favourite actors, so that definitely helps with this.
Possibly my least favourite of Tadanobu Asano's that I have seen but I did still really enjoy it.
I agree with the other comment on here that you should check out Asano's better movies, as he is such an amazing talent.
And I don't want to go showing minimal love for Sho Aikawa here so check out some of his other movies too as he's made a lot of greats, I loved those he made with Takashi Miike, Rainy Dog is superb. As are the DOA movies if you're into something different.
It can be hard recommending Japanese movies though as some people just don't get them.
Not to say that you won't but that's just how it seems sometimes.
