Versus - -ヴァーサス- (film) 2000

       If you like Japanese movie, if you like zombies, awesome fighting scenes and guns - than "Versus" should be on your must-watch-it list :)

 The movie is basically a creation of one man - Ryuhei Kitamura. He came up with the story, co-written the script, directed it and also became its producer. Kitamura was inspired and influenced by many ideas and so he decided to combine action film (a lot of fighting scenes and guns), horror (loads of zombies), comedy (some of the dialogues and characters and smile enducing). He made something of a new quality and gained cult status.

The film tells a story of the Prisoner KSC2-303 (Tak Sakaguchi), who has just escaped from jail and is running away from the police in a wood. But he doesn't know that it is not an ordinary wood but The Forest of Resurrection. Whoever dies here, and the Prisoner finds out about it very quickly, comes back to life again as a zombie. KSC2-303 meets some strange people in the forest, people who seem to have been waiting for him. With them is The Girl (Chieko Misaka), a special girl. And they are waiting for The Man (Hideo Sakaki). From that moment unusual things start to happen - and the zombies are not the strangest things there at all.

I watched the movie because of Sakaguchi. Since I saw him in "Shinobi: Heart Under Blade" I got a bit obsessed with him and wanted to see all his movies. He is a skilled fighter and he is responsible fighting scenes in Versus. And he did it superbly!!!!!
