Not as nasty as I'd heard, but still a good film.
14 December 2006 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

I love a good violent revenge flick, and having read quite a bit about the All Night Long films, I thought I'd take a chance and give the first film a go. Remarks on IMDb about the extreme nature of the film made me a little unsure at first, but I persevered to the end. And, having just finished the film, I must say that a part of me was happy that the film wasn't so nasty that I felt I had overstepped the mark, but part of me was also a little disappointed too.

The film tells the story of three boys—a nerd, a rich kid and a wannabe aircraft mechanic—who become friends after they witness a violent murder. The boys agree to meet for a party the following week and want to impress each other by bringing a girl. The rich kid tries to hire a hooker, but she turns out to be a man-hater and handcuffs him to a fence with his trousers round his ankles. The nerd tries to get a girl from his school to go with him, but ends up puking on her due to nerves. Only the mechanic manages to find himself a real girlfriend.

However, before the party, the boy and his girl are attacked by a gang; she is raped (and killed) and he is beaten up. Seeking revenge, the boy rallies his friends and together they go looking for the gang...

A very violent, pessimistic and nihilistic film, director Katsuya Matsumura's All Night Long (the first in a series) isn't exactly a fun film, with nearly everyone dying by the end, but I was surprised that I wasn't as shocked as I thought I might be. Sure, the content isn't the sort of thing you would show to the easily offended, but to be honest, I've seen nastier without having to look too hard. And yes, there is a lot of blood, but the gore content should not shock anyone used to modern day horror movies.

That is not to say that I didn't enjoy the film. The actors all play their parts well (with the exception of the nerdy guy at the end, who hams it up a tad too much), the story is engrossing and, surprisingly, the film is a quality production (nice cinematography, great haunting score). I was just expecting....well, something else. Maybe I need to go one step further and seek out parts 2 & 3 of this series. They're supposed to be really out there!
