User Reviews

Solid sequel to a surprisingly good live action movie
13 May 2019 | by phanthingaSee all my reviews

Words cannot describe how much of a fanboy I am when watching all my favorite character come to live in the first Gintama live action movie and thank god the movie did well in Japan because I'm had been waiting to see Gintama 2: Rules Are Meant To Be Broken forever and although it not as good as I hope it to be it still a fun and bizarre movie nonetheless. The comedy still very Gintama-ish just how I like it and to see some of the most iconic supporting characters finally debut on screen is definitely a plus but that just entertain me when the movie still on it gag side because when the story finally switch to the serious side it just flat out bad. I know over the top acting is one the key elements that make the first movie works but the cast let it get ahead of themselves this time so it not so over the top it funny anymore but so over the top it embarrassing to watch
