That's It (Soredake) (Sogo Ishii, 2015)

Post by HungFist »

Ishii hasn't been so interesting in the recent years (although I'm one of the few people who rather enjoyed Isn't Anyone Alive?) but these stills sure have an old school Ishii wibe to them!

And yes, that's Shota Sometani. That guy's 22 years old and he has already worked with Sion Sono (three times), Sogo Ishii (twice), Takashi Miike (twice), Koji Wakamatsu, Ryuichi Hiroki, Shinji Aoyama, Kiyoshi Kurosawa and Takahisa Zeze, just to mention a few examples. Damn...

Opens May 27th

Trailer looks pretty awesome. Shota Sometani is starting to grow up - dude is not a kid anymore. I can see him getting manlier as time passes.

Saw this tonight. After the first 15 minutes everyone in the audience were like:

In other words, it was rocking everyone's socks off.

It does slow down after that, and frankly you could lose 20 minutes from the middle part. Towards the end it picks up again and comes close to greatness until the crappy gun and blood CGI kinda takes you out of it.

But it's not a bad movie. I think I'd watch the whole thing again just for the first 15 min. That's the Ishii who gave us Crazy Thunder Road and Shuffle there.

Needless to say Shota Sometani is fine in the movie. He's now what Tadanobu Asano was 12 years ago. Erina Mizuno is good, too, and pretty. And the bazooka sound and the music by Blood Thirsty Butchers rocks.
