Excellent Japanese movie on JCG trainee divers
8 June 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Commonly touted as the Japanese Coast Guard version of Top Guns, this is an excellent movie that provides an in depth look into the training life of Japanese Coast Guard divers. They are an elite group of people and only 1% of the Japanese Coast Guards can make it to this training each year.

There are generous amounts of underwater shots for a Japanese movie and you can tell the production team has taken pains in making the movie memorable. Apparently, it was a summer hit when released in Japan in 2004.

This movie is the pilot to the drama which was released in Japan in 2005 and they've just released the sequel to this movie in May 2006. Very interesting concept that the producers have chosen and it had created lots of hype for the recently released sequel resulting in box office records as well.
