(kr) wrote: Crows Zero is a manga adaptation about factions of students fighting for control of a Japanese high school. Not exactly a new idea, as every other anime and manga is about that very subject. But that's not what made Crows so uninteresting to me, I've previously enjoyed many movies and shows with similar plots. My issues with the movie were that I never felt any connection to the characters, and couldn't care less about what happened to them. Add that to the unremarkable fight scenes, and you've got a recipe for "meh". I did appreciate the sporadic humor, but that quickly (and unfortunately) faded away as the movie progressed. Die-hard fans of the manga may want to check this out, but I can't recommend that anyone else go out of their way to see it. If you want to see high school students beating each other to a pulp, there are much better (and more exciting) options.

(nl) wrote: I like Clive Owen. I like Paul Giamatti. I like the idea of Giamatti playing one nasty bad guy. I did not like this movie. Owen plays Smith but why should we care? Why should we care about the pregnant woman or the baby he saves? Why should we care about poor hooker Donna Quintano, Monica Bellucci, who traded her normal life for her current one after giving birth to a stillborn baby. And Smith, why should we care his wife and child died from guns he sold? These are all terrible things which would lead a moviegoer to develop some feeling for the characters on screen. However, the order in which these facts are presented are not conducive to said feeling. By the time you find out all this information it's too late. As I said, why care? And there are a lot of silly stunts by Smith. No big deal right? Add a baby to the silly stunts and please. Really? So you're telling me flopping all around with a newborn is not going to hurt his development? And this baby isn't going to have hearing problems from the excessive gun shots he's heard? Please. Alternate title for this flick: How Many Ways Can Smith Use a Carrot as a Weapon?. No joke. This ridiculousness happens way too frequently for my tastes. Bottom line: avoid.
