Storyline

In the year 2014, Japan has collapsed economically and thus its people emigrated in large numbers and settled in other parts of the world. In a corner in Asia, there is a little street called Mallepa, a big melting pot where Asians such as Hongkongers, Taiwanese and Japanese live together. It was a place where people fought for order, food and freedom. It was there where Shou (Gackt), raised as an orphan and Kei (Hyde), who could live forever, met and became the best of friends. However, they were unable to escape from the fight for power involving gangs of different ethnicity on the street of Malepa... Written by Soleil 1893

Great movie
12 July 2004 | by tboneplayerjSee all my reviews

O.k., so even if the main character reminds you of your sister, he can act.Gackt plays Sho, a juvenille who has trained with Kei, (hyde) which is a vampire. He trains Sho to fight with guns, dodge bullets, and take out underground gang members. They eventually bump into another gunsman, who also takes out gangs. He has a sister, who likes Kei, but Sho likes her. ( Do not pay attention to the back of the box on the DVD, it is wrong!!!)The movie is great in a few ways. The gun scenes are excellent, esp. when Hyde throws 2 pistol clips at Gackt and he catches them in the guns. AWESOME!!! There are funny scenes too, but you have to see it yourself. Only negative, sometimes Hyde burns in light, sometimes he doesn't. I recommend this to everyone, esp. if you like shoot em up films or if your a fan of Camui Gackt.
