Pretty entertaining Japanese supernatural serial killer thriller.
3 June 2003 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

'Another Heaven' isn't the most innovative or original Japanese horror movie I've seen in the last couple of years, but it's still pretty entertaining, and should interest any fans of 'The Hidden' or 'Fallen', two movies it shares certain similarities with (though I must admit it isn't anywhere near as good as either). Two cops, one young one old, are on the trail of a killer, something we've seen in so many other movies it's become beyond a cliche. Some people have mentioned 'Se7en' as a reference point, which is accurate to a certain degree, but you might as well throw Kurosawa's 'Stray Dog' in as a comparison, it doesn't really matter. Pretty soon they realize that the fiendish serial killer they are hunting isn't exactly what he appears to be, and herein lies the twist 'Another Heaven' adds to this overly familiar material. I could be cynical and pull apart the plot holes, but this movie requires a certain suspension of disbelief, otherwise you might as well not bother. It is what it is, and if you accept that you'll be reasonably entertained. The two main cops are good enough, the two women in the younger cops life, a sophisticated doctor, and a trampy ex-criminal are both great to look at, and there are enough gruesome scenes and tense moments to keep you watching until the end. 'Another Heaven' isn't anything special but it's okay.
