As far as adaptations go, pretty good. Better than AoT at least.
29 July 2017 | by (Dathomir) – See all my reviews

Tokyo Ghoul live action movie is...good. I mean, as far as adaptations go. The movie doesn't skimp out on the blood and guts and for the more queasy, you might not want visit the concession stand or risk losing your popcorn. Easy to follow but suffers like many adaptations with the too much to explain with too little time syndrome. The pacing also had its ups and downs but mostly because of the intensity of some of its key scenes that make the quieter moments quieter. Great acting all around, especially from its mains. Both Kubota and Shimizu play their parts well and, though I can already hear the overacting complaints from others despite Kubota really making a perfect Kaneki with the switches between calm and paranoia. Despite not being the best CGI in the business, it never took me out of the story. I was almost always invested and I can't believe I'm saying this but...I want a second one.
