One Chanbara (2008)


#1





That’s right, hack-and-slash game Oneechanbara is getting a hack-and-slash film adaptation! The movie was announced today at a Tokyo press conference, and the flick’s website was launched. The film will star TV talent Eri Otoguro as Aya, bikini model Chise Nakamura as little sister Saki and idol Manami Hashimoto as Reiko.

cute

Do I really need to answer to that? I think you know my opinion about this already. :-X :-[

Especially the second pic (not counting the poster) had me sold in a second.


#4

I like the second picture from the bottom


#5

Cute asian chicks with swords - I’ll watch it.

I’m with dice here, the schoolgirl is nice, the cowgirl I don’t care that much for. She looks cool (especially terrific poster), but she’s not getting any cuteness points from me (which is not a negative thing, just neutral… I’m not giving Sonny Chiba cuteness points either and that hasn’t stopped me from loving his movies :stuck_out_tongue:)


#7

That’s a cool poster. ;D



Those people should be ashamed of themselves. Taking advantage of my love for Japanese girls. Oh well, I’d watch it anyway.



How can you not give this man cuteness points?

I’m sorry to disappoint you my friend, but I don’t think they were thinking of you when making the movie ;D

I have this theory that although these films are obviously made mainly for the Japanese market, they definitely rely on the hordes of white guys who fantasize about Japanese women. They totally know that white guys who wish they’d been born Japanese will be making up a significant percentage of the DVD sales. ;D



And don’t lie, I can totally tell that the schoolgirl was thinking of me in that screenshot. :stuck_out_tongue:

According to twitch this one’s got zombies, too :smiley:

Seen in. Disappointing.

[quote=“HungFist”]OneChanbara (Japan, 2008) – 1,5/5

3 + 2 = 1,5. Hmm. It’s got a school girl zombie, topples lady zombie, and a zombie eating intestines. It’s also got a katana wielding bikini girl as the main character, and a seifuku cutie as her opponent. Yet it barely works. Gô Ohara’s action design borrows from Versus and Death Trance (in which he also worked) but does everything with notably less success. The director (Yôhei Fukuda) shows little talent, and the actors are so wooden they don’t even do justice to the cardboard characters. CGI is plenty and very bad, but actually works to the benefit of the film. The core idea - swords, girls and zombies - is also fun enough to entertain even if the pic fails on other areas. Oh, and this is a video game adaptation.[/quote]

As promising as it seems, after checking out the trailer on the official site there, I can definitely see how you would be right HF. Looks incredibly commercial, and probably not anywhere near as fun as it could be.

Don’t you just love how Hung Fist feels the need to keep posting updates on films that he’s reviewed badly and everyone else has pretty much given up on? :stuck_out_tongue: Now that’s dedication. ;D 8)
