Storyline

Genji and his victorious G.P.S. alliance find themselves facing down a new challenge by the students of Hosen Academy, feared by everyone as 'The Army of Killers.' The two schools, in fact, have a history of bad blood between them. And the simmering embers of hatred are about to flare up again, burning away any last remnants of the truce they had so rigorously observed until now. Written by Pusan International Film Festival

School pride!

The first "Crows Zero" mainly revolved around Genji Takiya building a reputation and most of the characters are pretty much developed for these types of flicks. And the GPS gang is now the most dominant gang in Suzuran high school. So where does the film goes from there. Well now instead of having rival gangs inside the same school they are now fighting against another school called Hosen Academy. Because they have a past beef they want to settle with each other. It does have some subplots that doesn't really have anything to do with the core story. But it's passable but pointless and doesn't add much to the movie besides the running time. So the core story is about how Genji Takiya starts up the fire between the two schools by breaking the non-aggression pact. And most of the movie is basically about Hosen Academy attacking Suzuran high school members to antagonize them and Genji trying to build up a bigger army. If it's GPS or not regardless in order to beat Hosen Academy. There are some character that are just not all that relevant. Especially Meisa Kuroki who doesn't add anything at all to this movie but basically the almost the only female character in this flick. Some of the lines in "Crows Zero" is just cliché tough guy lines but this one takes it to a whole another level. I was like "C'mon don't go there" but it does and it can come off very predictable and lame. Even for a movie based on a manga. The fights are entertaining to watch for a while but it starts to lose it's value after a while. And there is a lot of fight scenes in this movie but becomes a bit dull after a while, maybe because the only fighting style in this is brawling. The final fight this time around is bigger with just about all the main characters showing off there fighting skills but nothing all that memorable. Overall this is a decent sequel that is worth a watch if your one of the audiences that enjoyed the first "Crows Zero".

6.9/10
