Kazu Patrick Tang,
Based on a comic by Mikiya Mochizuki, Wild 7 is a story that seems to reemerge every decade with a modern twist to its characters. The original comic appeared in 1969, so it has over 40 years history behind its lore. The comic has been translated into TV drama, animated series, video releases, and now this full feature length movie.
The good of this movie is that Japanese action movie has finally caught up with the quality of Hong Kong action movies. When it comes to physical action, Japanese movies just didn't have it. But this movie showed action scenes that are notch above those of traditional Japanese movies.
Although the plot was somewhat mundane, acting of Eita and Kyoko Fukada was pretty good. CG was pretty good too, and other special effects were all way above par that translates to surprisingly high quality of this movie.
If this is the direction they're going in, the future is bright for Japanese action movies.
