Versus: Directed by Ryûhei Kitamura. With Tak Sakaguchi, Hideo Sakaki, Chieko Misaka, Kenji Matsuda. There are 666 portals that connect this world to the other side. These are concealed from all human beings. Somewhere in Japan exists the 444th portal…. The forest of resurrection.

“A very poor film. Mediocre action, characters and acting. A film that uses slapstick, gore and stereotypical u0026quot;Slicku0026quot; bag guys, the composed anti-hero, the poor little innocent girl, a Clouseau type inspector and of course your gullible zombie hordes which march to their deaths in a series of slaughterfests. The film doesnu0026#39;t alter reality it ignores it, from 6 shooter revolvers firing a couple if dozen shots to throwing away your guns for hand to hand combat in the midst of a standoff. Most disappointing was the main characters portrayal as a bad ass but sakaguchis performance was so poor that rather than conveying u0026quot;not caringu0026quot; he conveyed u0026quot;stare straight ahead and donu0026#39;t change that faceu0026quot; The movie gets one star because the yakuza leader really put some effort into his character. In all this blows, some people say that its a movie that a group can relax with a drink and laugh at and enjoy, however thats something that can be easily done with XXX2. Doesnu0026#39;t take much to entertain a couple of drunks and this film isnu0026#39;t very much. Usually when someone criticises eastern cinema by saying says u0026quot;if that film was made in the west people would say it blowsu0026quot; In these cases I class them then and there as idiots but on this occasion I accept it. This film is just a Japanese cult fad and if it was shot entirely the same with script, plot, level of performance and even the exact same frames, no doubt the public would bomb it. Face it, this blows.”
