Meandering and not too good, 21 January 2014
Author: Bezenby from United Kingdom

Boring! You'd think any Japanese zombie film was worth picking up, but this one seems more concerned with Jujitsu than anything else. It also tries to do a switcheroo halfway through, but the whole thing feels like a bit of mess to me.

Two guys working in a fire extinguisher factory spend most of their time wrestling. The older, balder guy thinks he's dying, and wants to teach his pal jujitsu. When they accidentally kill their boss, they decide to bury him on Black Fuji, a mountain made of trash. Then, zombies rise up etc etc.

There's not much zombie action in this film, and the humour is very broad (and not funny). Take it from me – I'll watch any crap, but this one was an ordeal to sit through, especially when the film jumps ahead five years and totally grinds to a halt with some sort of post-zombie rising pit fighting and loads of arguing.

Not for me, this on – and I loved Wild Zero – so just watch that one instead. Much better
