Set in the present where a group of ruthless gangsters, an unknown woman and an escaped convict have met, unwittingly, in The Forest of Resurrection, the 444th portal to the other side. Their troubles start when those once killed and buried in the forest come back from the dead, with the assistance of the evil Sprit that has also come back, come back from ages past, to claim his prize. The final standoff between Light and Dark has never been so cunning, so brutal and so deadly. This is where old Japanese Samurai mysticism meets the new world of the gangster and the gun. Gruesome, bloody and positively bold. Written by
According to Kitamura, he raised the money to independently produce Versus (2000) by borrowing money from friends and family after Producers refused to produce an action film with him because, to them, it was impossible to achieve due to the lack of time and money. See more »
In the English dubbed version, one of the characters explains that he grew up in Yellowstone Park in Canada. Yellowstone Park is in the United States and since it's a national park, no one could be from or have "grown up" there. This fits the character, though, who seems to lie about his abilities throughout the movie. See more »
¨Many people seem to think that this is a good film if you don't expect a good plot or anything else but brainless action. I didn't, it still sucked.
First of all even in an action film, you need even somewhat interesting characters. The only slightly interesting guy here was the weird dude in the green shirt and that's only because he was silly. Pretty much nothing is told about the characters, so who cares about any of them. That's the worst thing about this movie, it doesn't get interesting at any point.
There was way too little violence, considering that some of the main keywords for this in IMDb are "extreme violence" and "extreme gore". The blood looked like cranberry juice in most of the shots and it doesn't help that this was meant to be campy.
Well at least the action was pretty good, but that's not enough to keep your attention for the whole 2 hours. 90 minutes would already have been a bit too much, but 2 hours c'mon! Action was very anime stylish and has the same problems too; there is too much filler. Shooting zombies in a one scene gets boring after five minutes when there's nothing else to it, so just move on please. Don't bother with this, it's a really boring movie. And I didn't even mind about the ridiculous non-existent plot.
