A progressively more unnecessary adaptation
3 January 2018 | by joaofilipeafonso-35374See all my reviews

Tokyo Ghoul is an adaptation of a sucessful manga series and it clearly shows: that is, it clearly shows that it is a film whose main goal is to tell a story that has already been told without adding anything to it. I'm not familiar with both the manga and the anime adaptation but I'm sure they are far superior in the quality of storytelling.

Some elements of the movie are salvageable, such as the cinematography, some of the acting and sometimes the special effects are surprisingly good. But both the special effects of the film and its remaining problems have one thing in common: they overstay their welcome. The special effects have some detail and show there was work put into them, but sadly the budget wouldn't sustain the level of movement and interaction that was required to tell this story.

Tokyo Ghoul is a poor waste of time and money, with clear cuts of story that add up to confusion and an overall sense of doubt. Fans of the manga will feel frustration due to the lack of anything that would justify a film adaptation and new viewers will feel confused and uninterested. And the worst part is that the story that was told has the potential of being so much more entertaining and genuinely intriguing if told properly.
