Wasted Potential
13 November 2019 | by pablosiqueiraSee all my reviews

The movie tells about three yakuza members that do something that really angers their boss, as punishment, they are sentenced to death. But as the three men ask for mercy, the boss decides for another kind of punishment and he says that the guys need to make a change in order to become an idol group and bring him lots of money or cut off a leg or spill their guts. And then they choose to become idols.

This premise sounded very interesting and kind of different but the movie just ignores all the development of that and jumps right to when they are fully transitioned into women already in a famous idol group. Aside from quick images nothing is shown about their transitioning process and they adapting into the new life and that is the big mistake made by this movie, it just ignores everything that could make this movie unique and more complex to only focus on a group of idols trying to get more success and fighting some yakuza along the way.

The highlight of the movie is the boss of the group, chief Inugane (Iwaki Koichi), he is funny and he likes to kick doors (literally) while the idols are fine but their male versions are a little over the top, they appear in some scenes later on as a clash of thoughts with their female versions and those moments were really unnecessary. The most annoying thing in this movie is the main villain that is super annoying and over the top. He is the CEO of an agency but looks like an angry teenager and behaves like a crying baby. The actor really didn't fit the role.

The movie length of only 1h27min shows how thin the plot is, instead of watching this movie I highly recommend watching the anime series with the same name avaliable on Netflix that is way more funny and has a more mature approach that makes a big difference while this movie is too constricted by its "PG13" approach.In the hands of Takashi Miike or Sion Sono this movie coud be way better. This is another example of an interesting premise with a very poor development.
