Fair, Urban Japanese Horror/Thriller, 23 September 2000
Author: iaido

Nobody is a film with a good premise but flawed execution.

A minor set of words between two groups of business men (three men in each group), leads to one of them getting beat up. They try find the other group to get revenge, but come up empty handed until late one night they come across one of the rival men in a subway. The three friends beat him severely, so much that they run away, and begin checking the papers to see if they killed him. Soon they begin to get phone calls from the men saying that they have killed the man (though there is no evidence) and slowly they begin to get picked off.

Were these men just crazy business men? Bloodthirsty Yakuza? Crooked Cops? Unfortunately these questions and the I Know What You Did Last Summer-like plotline, dont hold up very well, and are clumsy. The deaths, the suspicion, and the finale, fall too far into b-movie territory. The script, direction, and cinematography are lackluster, and with a little fine tuning, some expanding on the cultural side, it could have been a better film. A slightly below average effort.
