A 2nd-year high school student named Shun Takahata lives an ordinary teenage life until one day he's suddenly forced to participate in a series of children's games such as "Daruma-san ga Koronda" with death as the penalty for losing. With no knowledge of who's behind the games, he's left with no other choice but to keep winning as his only means of protecting himself and his childhood friend, Ichika. Meanwhile, a troubled classmate named Takeru seems to actually be relishing the opportunity to get other students killed. Written by Subrat Jain

Good Movie
20 August 2017 | by marcorivas54See all my reviews

Here is another good film by one of my favorite Japanese directors Takashi Miike. This film is based off a manga of the same name and shows the first arc of the manga. From the very beginning of the film it's really interesting and catches your attention unlike other films where the attention has to be caught sometime inwards. The basic premise of the film is students having to play games to survive and if you lost at these games you die gruesome deaths. There is a lot of blood and death and the characters in this film are a mix of actual people and CGI characters. I liked the CGI of the fictional characters in this film because it seemed to fit so well with everything. It's not like that completely horrible animation where it sucks.
