Tenshu is imprisoned and sentenced to death for murdering the men who raped his girlfriend. However, he manages to survive his execution and is presented with an option: face another execution attempt or subject himself to their bizarre and dangerous experiments. He choses the latter and is put in a cell with a rapist and a woman who's infected with a taint that transports from person to person during extreme anger. The taint is transferred to Tenshu and he must now deal with the military who has interrupted the experiment to obtain it.Written by
When Takutake shoots Zeros after he is defeated, you can clearly hear the sound of a shell casing of a pistol hitting the ground. As Takutake is using a revolver, which does not eject spent shells after each shot, this would make no sense. See more »
It definitely better than the source material but.........
When I watch Alive (2002) for the first time a couple of years ago I thought the movie was fine despite that it a huge step down compare to the bombastic mess of violence and gore of Versus (2000) but now after reading the manga version which is very short and underwhelming I decided to give the movie another chance and my impression on the story and character still pretty much the same but with many new layer of respect for director Ryuhei Kitamura. Like I said before because the manga was not that good to begin with and when I watch The Making of Alive (2002) for free on Youtube and know the reason why this movie even exists in the first place is because how much the director love the ending of the manga so he makes a whole movie to accompany that ending is flat out insane and kind of inspiring. It a real challenge for the film crew to make this movie as entertaining as possible and I think with the Matrix action scenes and a rematch between Hideo Sakaki and Tak Sakaguchi definitely fill the bill although the movie still suffers greatly from the unnecessary long runtime and the pacing.
