Let the bizarre cat and mouse game begin
10 June 2018 | by phanthingaSee all my reviews

I can't never ever in a million years imagine a series like Jojo's Bizarre Adventure can work well in live-action form but apparently all you need is a good director and a reasonable script.You gotta know that Diamond is Unbreakable is just one part of a long running series with different timeline,location and characters so in order to make this movie with 2 hours runtime they made a lot of sacrifices so I kudos for that.The introduction of the important characters is fine and the selling point of the story is the battle between Stand User is way better than I expected.I'm completely okay with skip through some minor stuff if all the iconic moments and characters still there and seem like the movie go for that direction as well.The worst aspect of the movie for me still about the horrendous anime hair and the disturbing lack of Jojo poses.I know it a live-action movie but it not a proper Jojo movie without over the top poses
