COMIC Jin Roh

  1. Sucked.

    What a waste of $40 for it based on word of mouth, that thing was slow as molasses, and the cheap fairy tale being read through it for half the movie made me want to end myself. However the action was good when it came for all 10 minutes of it in the movie.

    This thing had potential, but lack of more action killed it for me.

    At least it's pretty to look at when collecting dust on my shelf.

    :ugh: Jin-roh was really good. sure there's not much action but the plot, characters, and emotions make up for that.

    Too serious for me. I didn't appreciate it.
     
  4. I could appreciate that side of it, however the aforementioned fairy tale being talked through 90% of the movie killed it for me I guess.

    Also I thought there would be more action, I mean come on... It's called WOLF BRIGADE... and there is a big guy with glowing red eyes on the cover holding a gun as big as his torso.

    I like the serious plots, but this one didn't float that or the action, that's all.

    Jin Roh was awesome, the fairy tale is a very popular one with such a sad ending that is very popular in Japan, everyone knows this story. The director obviously made this for the Japanese audience presuming that they know this fairy tale. I haven't watched this movie in the english dubbed version either so I can't speak for most of you but I must say that the Japanese voice actors did a very good job.
     
  9. I'm going to give it another shot. I think when I sat down to watch it I was geared for Ninja Scroll, had a buddy over and stuff. Along with the beer we consumed, we were screaming for blood and mayhem, and got the fairy tale instead.

    I'll report back once I try it again.
