OK... I bought this DVD, because Kinji Fukasku
directed it... this was, at the time, the most expensive
Japanese film ever made... and like Fukasku's other
international film, Tora! Tora! Tora!, is was also a
FLOP... But unlike, Tora!, I can see why...
this movie has a large multi international cast, but it
is so gloomy and dull... The plot is about a humanity
killing virus, that kills millions of millions of people...
It drags on and on... sadly, Fukasku is a great director,
and I love his movies, but, this isn't a good movie...
It would take another 20 years, before he had a real
international hit, with Battle Royal, and then he died.
I love his work, but like most directors, he made a few
duds along the way...
