They tried to hard!
26 July 2018 | by martimus-56459See all my reviews

My favorite Anime is Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji and so I watched this movie to in a way find out they just tried to hard to get away from the anime with these more Deadpool like effects and a different personality, that's also why many said it would be like Deadpool but it isn't anything like it! This movie completly goes over the Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji Ship plot of the first Season and tries to varie a bit with a somewhat different plot at the start on how or why he got there and why he needs to get back! Thoese Jumps with the clown just in a way simbolise how filthy and asshole like many of the people there are and he is the hero that fights through it wich isnt really in any way important and are mostly confusing! I found that the Anime Explanation was a bit better because it wasnt really as fast explained as it is in the movie! It is defenitly something for poeple that wont wanna see a really awesome and well crafted Anime! It would had potential if it was directly based on the Anime and not with so many confusing and really unessassary scenes! If you like stuff like this i can only recommend either watching the anime if you are more Live action oriented like this movie is then Liars Game is a really good Recommendation for you!
