Great movie, well worth the buy.
25 April 2007 | by (Culver City, California) – See all my reviews

GTO has always been a favorite series of mine, mostly due to actor Takashi Sorimachi doing such a great job in the live action. The film was actually my first view of the live action, and I must say I was impressed. Sorimachi captures Onizuka's personality extremely well, and having played it out for so many years, he's nearly perfected it. The erratic behavior is there, though his Onizuka is slightly less. However, the personality is there, just as we would expect. It's great and the film is hilarious. What's especially nice is that there are several original elements, like the amusement park angle and the old man on the bench. The film is highly entertaining, fairly original, and translates everything we love very well. Any fan should definitely pick it up. It's a keeper.
