Popular TV Series Movie Version... Not worth making a movie over. Just why?
I watched a few episodes of the TV drama series (which is also based on the manga), which was somewhat watchable; it works as TV episodes/series... I had no idea they made a "movie" version of the drama series. I imagined the movie would be somewhat interesting... WRONG.
What an absolutely boring snorefest.
Sure, it has a grade-up "film look", but the story is like a cure for insomnia.
Who thought this would make a good movie idea??? It's practically just a regular TV episode/story that is just super dragged out.
The premise is not interesting at all.
Also if you haven't even seen the TV series and invested your time in the characters before, the movie will feel even more pointless and boring.
