Don't waste your time
30 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is on someones list of top 100 Japanese films and i mistakenly wasted my time watching this.

There are a lot of problems with this film plot characters cinematography it all is pretty much terrible.

Getting into it though the story is about a group of adults in their early twenties who want to be rappers. The only problem is they all are terrible and more or less ugly losers. The story line is just a bore they never do anything in this film they have one "concert" and that isn't even performed on a stage.

The biggest problem are the actors and actresses in this film. THEY ALL SUCK. they are all terrible actors. This film looks like it was made by a college drama club and it's members and their parents were used for the acting roles. The best performer in this film was by a porn star! Thats how bad they all were.

Another huge thing though is just how obviously low budget this film was. They probably spent a thousand dollars making this film. They filmed at 5 different locations and none of those were ascetically pleasing. Everything just seemed very unprofessional. I seriously feel like i could go out now and make a better film then this.

Yeah i felt like i had to write this so everyone knows to stay away. Really if you watch this your just going to be wasting your time.
