You'll feel completely trapped.... in pure boredom
5 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Reading a synopsis about Zoo and chances are that you probably be interested in this film. 5 stories, 5 young upcoming Japanese directors, dark tales of murder, weird happenings, etc..

What Zoo actually is, is five young Japanese directors who've learned what a still shot, or slow shot is. They use it a few times and pretend to be Takeshi Kitano I suppose, then the stories they show you will be explained to you in the most idiotic way possible.

  • The first short film is about these two twin sisters, who are played
by the same person, one is hated by the mother the other is not. Everything in this first story is pedantic and trod-ding, and it leads up to a climax that is completely ... NOT surprising.

  • The second is a rather semi-interesting one, called 7 Rooms, people
are for some unknown reason, each locked into a room, by some unknown guy, who wants to kill them after they've been there for 7 days and eaten 6 slices of bread and 1 bowl of soup. The ending. Is a giant roll-eyes unfortunately.

  • The third is absolutely ridiculous I don't even want to talk about
it's so stupid.

  • The cartoon is boring and dull.


  • The final piece actually attempts to be spooky and sort of take
chances, but leaves you empty and hollow. There is absolutely no real story told, a mild statement is made and the movie's credits roll.

The end. Save yourself the trouble, this is not for suspense/horror fans AT ALL, go see Tale of Two Sisters or Audition or something else Asia has done that is really worth something.
