One of the best car movies out their!
23 March 2014 | by cookedakingSee all my reviews

Wangan Midnight: The Movie has some of the best car scenes I have seen, surprisingly good script, the actors does a really good job of portraying their characters and it has some really hot chicks(who doesn't like that?). It has a lot of emotional moments that makes your mood swing from the happiest person on earth to the saddest. The cars are very beautiful and the characters interacts with each other on a very good way for a low budget film. Sure their is some bad things with the movie but considering the budget used for this movie they have done a really good job. If you like this movie you should really consider watching the anime which is even better then this movie. And if you can read Japanese the excellent Manga could be a excellent option to read.
