Today, khurak.net would like to introduce to you The Worst Live Action Anime Adaptation of All Time – Devilman (2004) Movie Review. Following along are instructions in the video below:
“Free to check out mighty public after the video devil man is a popular 1972 1972 horror series by famous manga author and artist gonna guy who is also known other classics like cutie honey and mazinger z. The manga followed a young man named akira fudo. Who one night gains the ability to transform into the demonic superhero double man who goes to war with demons and our world. The double man manga was a huge deal at the time it was a series published in weekly shonen jump that gradually became darker as it progressed and delve deeper into themes of anti war and the lesser of two evils.
Which resulted in some controversy due to its horrific aliy graphic nature it was chilling depressing tragic grotesque and overall iconic which in turn made it one of the most influential manga ever made and we also have to. Thank len danzig for making it popular in the manga community in the us. There was an anime that ran at the same time as the manga several ova z spin offs crossovers super charger heaven by white zombie. And more this also includes a 2004 live action film from to a directed by hiroyuki natsu.
Who at the time was only known for his numerous live action adaptations of bebop high school. That earned him a reward for best director. At the 8th yokohama film festival. When word of a live action.
Double man film came out fans were very excited. However as more information about the film was being revealed that excitement turned into fear. Which would then turn into anger upon the release of the first trailer fans flooded the movie s official website with hate comments that ended up delaying the movie for half a year. Well that sounds familiar and it doesn t stop there.
No no no no fan note. No let s get down to the nitty. Gritty buckle up ladies and gentlemen grab a bible. Get.
Some incense burning put your crosses up get some wafers and wine and have some holy water ready. Because i will show you what is perhaps the absolute worst live action. Anime and manga adaptation of all time yes worse than death note 2017 worse than fists of the north our and goddamnit. It s even worse than dragonball evolution attack on titan looks like the seven samurai compared to this godforsaken movie.
What s that ghost in the shell get out of here. Oh yeah spoilers for both of this movie. And the manga. Because the movie tries to cram the entire story consisting of five volumes now to covering sixteen chapters.
Which in total makes up about 1330. Pages. Worth of material. All within two hours and we all know how that usually turns out our tragic tale opens with a young acura fudo and ryo osku.
Who for some reason has white hair as they look through the book of foreshadowing. When all the sudden. Oh cool. Guess.
I m watching x. Men. Now. Oh.
You motherfucker then fast forward to see akira and ryo played by twin j. Pop performers hisato and us kiyosaki making their first film appearances here and together they make japanese knockoff peter parker and harry osborn also is it me or are pop singers taking lead roles in live action anime starting to become a trend. Although to this movies credit. It did somewhat inspire the use of track and double man cry baby.
That s the only good thing. I ll say about this movie also something tells me that these two weren t casted for their acting capabilities. Akio and reo meet up with ayane sakai as me keema kimura. Whose family took akira in after his parents died in a car crash we later see the rest of her family.
And oh hey look it s admiral tachibana from gmk ikura gets in trouble with some bullies and they beat. The crap out of him so hard that they forget to add punch sound effects and some of those blows at the air. What makes you think that the fact that you re benching 65 pounds..
No don t run away. She was totally meyer enya bro ryo. Tells akira that his father died and gives him a headset that plays a video of his father. Explaining.
What s been going on with his research turns out his team discovered an energy source that released a monster shaped like sperm cells. Am i even allowed to show this without getting demonetized basically this energy source blew its load all over the research team turning the people into demons and damn it old man could you please move back a few steps you re really making me uncomfortable reo takes a cura to his home and why after death rio s dad gives acura a money shot from the grave now acura has become devil man and good lord the cgi is so bad i make a joke about how it looks like a video game cutscene. But video games look way better than this ok. I know it was 2004 in japan.
Didn t really have the budget for good cgi. Which begs. The question. Why even you cgi in the first place.
Yeah. Sure you have a giant blob of a horrifying npc. But they easily could have had devil man be a stunt actor in makeup. That s not what i meant i cure wakes up the next morning to find out that not only does his hoodie disappear between shots you find sound that he really is discount tobey maguire.
All the sudden rio has been confronted by acuras bullies from earlier and acura arrives at the scene just in time to take him down with his newfound powers of wirework and slapping see akira. I told you she was meir enya after that i caribee cam. So full of himself that he started wearing shirts with his first initial on them okay. I know it s a reference to the original anime.
Where he wears the same thing anyway. Ask and ye shall receive akira because if you wanna fight you got it we re then introduced to cyrene whose outfit looks like it was purchased from a halloween store rather than having someone actually make a costume for her that is if you would call it that and again fight choreography is just so convincing after a visually nauseating cgi fight scene ryo comes in just in time. And it ends. The scene just ends right there nice job iman kike.
It s cute hey miki. I know we re family and all but technically we re not related so and according to a newscaster played by pro wrestler bob sapp of all people. We then see that more demons are starting to pop up this then leads to the fight against the turtle demon jinmen in the manga ova is an especially crybaby. This was a very powerful confrontation as jimin traps.
The souls of his victims into a shell with only their faces intact. This creates something similar to a hostage situation. But the only way to free. The victims is to put them out of their misery.
This result. Tells acura that even as devil man. He cannot save all of humanity. And that people will die in the process.
How does the movie handle that you may ask i kira just kills them. Without a second thought our hero ladies and gentlemen also you know your effects are bad if they look like young gary after acura learns absolutely nothing from that confrontation there are news that demons are appearing in other countries around the world and would you please take care of your lips akira. No one needs to know that you ve been going to town with your surrogate sister. We start to see more demons appearing via news broadcast and well what did you think was gonna happen.
This gradually throws the entire world into chaos up to the point where innocent people are being murdered. Even with a slightest suspicion of being a demon and in good old stanley fashion devil main creator gonna guy makes a cameo in this film that there is the face of a disappointed man and here is perhaps the best worst seen in any live action anime and manga adaptation. A demon s nest is found in this mansion that acura and ryo go to demons start flooding out of the mansion and all get shot down which looks like a scene from birdemic and it is this moment where it is revealed that ryo is actually satan. I ll go more on that later rio who is a kimbo inc guzzi starts going full christian bale in equilibrium on these soldiers in the most ridiculous.
Laugh out loud way possible and it doesn t stop there rio enters. The mansion and this happens. I have some things to address here. One how come these soldiers don t start shooting at rio.
He s leaving himself wide open in front of all of them too rio had numerous ways he could have shot these guys. But he chooses the most careless way possible. What is his strategy here three out of all people why did the filmmakers decide that this laughably exaggerated plump..
Fellow would be the one to walk out of the mansion. Shout long live the demons and die right on the spot in the most comedic manner for how could anyone take any of this seriously and five why would you put perhaps the biggest twist in the entire manga in the worst scene. Possible okay up until now i ve hidden the fact that the movie actually spoils this early on earlier in the film after rio shows. I care what happened to his father.
He tells him that he s also become a demon and begs accurate to kill him when akira transformed into devil man. So did rio throughout the movie. It makes rio out to be the psychotic and unstable person rio. Even says in the movie that he is pure evil.
So if you take that and pair. It with when he confirmed that he is a demon it makes this twist entirely meaningless. The twist hardly has any effect on the movie whatsoever because they already told you that he is satan now let me rephrase myself. Rio turning out to be satan was perhaps the biggest plot point in the entire manga it creates a huge impact on the story.
And it s characters i cure has been best friends with a man who turned out to be the epitome of all evil. And the one who s been pulling the strings. The entire time rio. Now satan is the very reason why acura has lost everyone he has loved this twist along with a very graphic in the manga and its themes around it are at the very center of its popularity and why double man as a manga was very influential in the first place here.
The movie is so poorly written and directed up to this point that again the twist. Hardly even matters. Why even tried to adapt the most pivotal moment of the series. Which is also one of the biggest moments in all of classic shonen manga.
When you can t even do it there s no one take this movie seriously so yeah everything including the movie itself goes to shit. Which slowly builds up to the most shocking event from the series. The deaths of the ma. Kimura family.
The ma. Kimura s are suspected of being demons. Which leads to a bloodthirsty mob of insane. People killing them.
All miki included this was a very shocking moment because over time. We ve grown to love miki as a character. And she had good chemistry with akira. She also represented acuras happiness as she was the only thing in his life.
He lived for because she has done so much for him and before his eyes. All that is left of acuras humanity and happiness is stripped away from him let s see how the movie does it dude after mourning the death of the mucky murres. I karen rio meet again the last 20 minutes of the film is nothing. But two terribly animated and rendered cgi monsters battling it out to the death.
Along with very little practical effects work that just end up being wasted. The world is destroyed all life on earth. Is decimated. The moon is cracked in half for some reason and acura and rio rest upon iraq.
This is one of the worst movies. I ve ever seen in my entire life. The acting is so wooden and monotone everyone in this movie sounds and looks bored out of their minds. The cinematography is bland and uninteresting the scoring is so forgettable the sound design is just ugly and horrendous.
The pacing is too fast. Which makes a movie feel really slow the tone is inconsistent beyond all comprehension. The direction is a complete and competent utter mess. The writing tries so hard to be a tragic story about anti war and the lesser of two evils and completely boches.
It making it awkward and corny as hell. I didn t even mention that there s an entire subplot about the character miko and this one kid how come i never talked about it you may ask because it serves zero purpose to the story whatsoever. It s just slapped in there for the sake of padding out the runtime..
Oh yeah. And somehow they survived towards the end of the movie. Even though. They should clearly be dead.
The special effects good god. The special effects alone are enough to prevent anyone from watching this movie. And how on earth did this fucking movie. Get rewarded for best special effects half of everything is on a green screen.
Sometimes things are green screened over things that are already green screened and other times. There s green screen and places that shooting. Even have green screen everything else effects wise is a putrid pigsty of cgi. The maze.
We ll be cutscenes for a really really bad video game. And the same sets are reused over and over and over and the action is so unconvincing and nauseating to the point where they re so visually noisy that you can hardly even make out what s happening. And it gives you a headache now allow me to make a case for other live action. Adaptations that are greatly reviled and disregarded ghosts in the shell despite it removing the philosophical themes of the original 1995.
Film. It s a nice little sci fi action flick. The sets. An overall setting are crafted rather.
Well and scarlett johansson does pull off a good multi coat kusanagi also the 1995 version hardly even followed the manga. So there s that attack on titan. The filmmakers behind these two films were actually pretty smart. They gave hajime isayama as much creative freedom as he wanted and they were done in tokusatsu like the movies that inspired attack on titan such as war of the gargantuas and godzilla vs.
Biollante. Both attack on titan films. Actually do have some importance as they did end up influencing future moments in the manga other than that it s well shot well paced could use a little more development. But they re not too bad death note 2017.
If you take away all the bad acting writing and pacing. The movie is edited shot and directed just fine and although. This is more of a personal taste thing. I honestly really like the soundtrack.
Even if some of its usage is a little odd and ryoga s definitely the best part fist of the north star. There really wasn t a whole lot to adapt before this came out. There was a 1986 animated film that rearranged events from the manga. And tells an incomplete story as well as an english translation of the manga that only covered the first arc and this is stuff not a lot of people were aware of at the time to the movie almost works.
But it just doesn t i mean if they were made now i guarantee you that it would be so much better and finally dragonball evolution. There is no saving this movie. There s nothing good about it. But the one thing.
It has over devilman is creativity. I would honestly rather have a movie that tries to be original. Rather than try to become something it s not oh. Yeah i forgot to mention this movies budget was 52.
Billion yen. Which at the time translates to about thirty six point three million dollars and when you adjust it for inflation. It s about forty nine point two million dollars to give you an idea of how much that is let s compare that to another special effects heavy live action project attack on titans budget was about three billion yen. Which translates to about twenty six point three million dollars.
Which adjusted for inflation is about twenty eight point four million dollars also keep in mind this is for two movies meaning each one is 15. Billion yen. Which translates to about thirteen point two million dollars..
Which ends up being fourteen point two million dollars for each movie. Double man s budget is the equivalent to almost for attack on titan movies not to mention that s about the same budget as death note 2017 even more than dragonball evolution nearly five times as much as fists of the north star and around ten times as much as guyver devil man is a movie with no heart no soul nothing it lacks everything that made the original story so compelling and iconic and its greatest moments or severely watered down and have very little impact due to how poorly the film is written and directed devil man. Was dead on a rifle. Oh.
And you want to talk about death. For a moment. Devil man is so bad that people actually mourn the fact. That it was made every year on its anniversary october.
9th. With 2019 marking its 15th. A movie magazine published. A list of filmmakers.
They wanted to die. And director haruki. Nasu. Was at the top for directing double man sure.
It was all a joke. But nasu actually died of liver cancer months after the film s release this movie is cursed. It s almost as if the movie itself is a demon plaguing. Any movie shelf with evil not only was devil.
Man voted the worst japanese film of 2004. It was actually voted as the worst japanese movie of the entire decade. Funny. How this atrocity of a manga adaptation was released the same year as catwoman and you know what this movie is so bad that i would honestly urge you all to watch it on your own.
When possible. It s laughable and unholy nature is enough for it to be quite the experience and if you want to have a really good laugh watch the english dub on the tokyo shock dvd. It s not a tv ghost stories levels of bizarre and atrocious. But it s definitely more entertaining than the ova singlish dubbed in terms of so bad.
It s good. What is that what the hell is that this is crazy right. Oh. I m not gonna do it dude.
Happy. Birthday. Also the fact that they even gave. This movie.
A special edition. Is hilarious in the end. Whenever. A new live action adaptation of a popular manga and or anime is in the works.
You won t have much to fear why because nothing nothing will ever compare to devil man. The worst live action. Manga and anime adaptation of all time. Thank you very much for watching this video.
