Great!
31 July 2012 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

This movie is definitely a treat for all the GTO fans out there. Perhaps, even for those who are about to watch it for the first time. Takashi Sorimachi's portrayal of Onizuka is undoubtedly a delight to watch - it is as if Onizuka came to life through the big screen.

The most entertaining thing about it is that it's able to keep its viewers entertained as it contains just a bit of everything you look for in a story. Onizuka will either tickle your funny bone with his comedic and goofy antics, or leave you teary-eyed through its dramatic climaxes (especially in the live action series). Plus, I like how it never lacks essence as it translates the scenes into lessons that everyone can relate to. It's fun, highly entertaining, and will surely leave you asking for more.
