Storyline

A police chief retiring, said police chief falling in love with a schoolgirl, a younger police chief moving into the position and taking on unsolved cases dating back years, etc. may be routine, not unusual and the order of things, but there is something else a afoot. There may or may not be phantom figures, portals to another world and distorted history at play. Keizoku: The Movie follows Keizoku the television serial. Written by aghaemi

a two-faced film
13 February 2005 | by office-134See all my reviews

A very impressive movie, but on the other hand a very nervy one. In the first half of the movie you have to go through scenes with a REALLY weird (Asian?) sense of humor which leave the whole impression a little bit weak. The actors are OVERacting, which gives this movie a strange attitude. The soundtrack is weak too. The plot/ story is amazingly well arranged and extremely good as well as the camera-work (nervous and effective)and the very well made visual effects.

On the DVD-Box (at least in the German version) it is introduced as a mix of "ringu" and "X-Files". I think neither of it is really true, but it is (exceptions above) one of the better Asian productions as long as you don't expect a thriller like "ringu", "darkwater" or "Ju-on: The Grudge".

I'd come to the conclusion that "Keizuko" is a mix of mystery, crime and a little bit thriller with a arty touch. I wouldn't mind if they'd cut all "strange-humor" scenes. This would make this movie a favorite.
