I'll be honest when I put Hell Girl on I expected another hyper low budget ghost themed embarrassment alike so very many others I've seen recently. It's not, not exactly anyway.
From the get go I was fairly impressed, the opening was stylish, the character development was fantastic, the script was strong and the cinematography was above par. For these reasons my expectations spiked, foolishly.
It tells the story of a group of ghost hunters on a "Job" who fall foul of a malevolent spirit. You know, the usual stuff.
Out of the gates I was enjoying it, but as soon as the movie really gets going it spirals into everything I feared that it was going to be. Don't get me wrong everything I said earlier still stands, everything is well above par and I have to tip my hat to everyone both in front of and behind the camera.
So why the low rating? Well the plot is just awful nonsensical tosh. No amount of quality everywhere else could save it from that, and Tom Sizemore! I don't know if his career has just nose dived to this level or if he's doing a Robert Englund and paying back to the industry that made him but he's starting to be a blemish on a movie rather than a bolster.
Better than what I expected it to be and very well made, but after about half way it turns real sour real fast.

Some elements are beyond stupid
