A New Gem
13 January 2017 | by aji4u4everSee all my reviews

I Am A Hero is a Japanese Horror MangaThriller directed by Shinsuke Yoto which is fresh in its appearance, narration, action and performances. Film revolves around a manga artist Hideo Suzuki who is struggling throughout and is leading an unsuccessful life encounters zombies which was a result of outbreak meets Hiromi, a teenaged school girl and their survival forms the crux of the story. Brilliant direction, omitted 99% of the clichés in the zombie movies. Absolutely brilliant action, graphics, the performances of the junior artists (Zombies) makes this movie a beautiful, engaging horror thriller. This movie has got the comedy, action, thrills, emotional quotients and mesmerizing acting by the lead actors. The music and background score was absolutely brilliant. A gem added to the zombie list. Don't miss this.. My rating 8.2 on 10
