Worthless terrorist movie
21 July 2008 | by (Tokyo / Toronto) – See all my reviews

Long story short, DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE! I don't think I've ever seen a Japanese movie where I don't have a SINGLE positive thing to say about, but this is it.

This movie stars many relatively big-name actors who have been inconsistent in the past, and they all delivered even worse performance than their previous worst. The acting is so bad in this thing that they're practically just standing there reading the script. I think this movie is supposed to be a thriller, but it's nothing more than a sleeper. The entire cast completely lack energy and passion, and had shown no signs of urgency in the face of impending doom.

The story line for this movie was even more pathetic than "L change the worLd". Even if you overlook the ridiculous setting, the character behavior makes absolutely no sense and there were countless plot holes. There were just way too many "why didn't he just..." or "how can they..." moments. The movie is so poorly written and directed that it made me laugh at how corny and stupid it was.

"Midnight Eagle" is a disgrace to the Japanese film industry, and I hope no unfortunate soul picks this movie as his or her first encounter with Japanese films.
