Shugo Hayami is a doctor at a nursing hospital, which was once a psychiatric hospital. One evening, when Shugo is on night duty, a man in pierrot mask breaks into the hospital and he is not alone. He is with Hitomi Kawasaki, a university student who has been shot by the masked man. The masked man tells Shugo to treat Hitomi. He also takes hostage the 64 people in the hospital. Soon, Shugo and Hitomi try to escape from the hospital and they encounter mysterious cases one at a time.
Engrossing suspense thriller marred by pacing issues. I enjoyed the twist.
Coincidentally this is the second Japanese movie i saw back to back aft revisiting Battle Royale.
I loved the twist, the movie has decent amount of tension, good suspense but it is a bit long.
A man in a mask after robbing a store, breaks into a hospital and he brings with him a young woman Hitomi Kawasaki, who has been shot by him.
The masked man tells Shugo Hayami to treat Hitomi Kawasaki.
Shugo Hayami, a new doctor who recently lost his wife n an unborn child in an accident gets close to Kawasaki after knowing that Kawasaki too lost a loved one.
While the masked man takes everyone at the hospital as hostages, Hayami and Kawasaki try to escape from the hospital but they encounter mysterious cases one at a time.
The film has a good twist and that too with a good reason.
Pacing is an issue and if u pay very close attention, something can be smelled.
Another flaw is that, a fella after shooting people, keeps the gun at the side of a dead person to put the blame on him but the problem is, the shooter never wipes off the fingerprints and the dead person on whom the blame is supposed to be put on, is wearing gloves and the shooter never attempts to remove the gloves and put the gun in the dead man's palm but rather keep it aside.
