Kaiji Movie Review
Release date: 2009-Oct-11
Cast: Fujiwara Tatsuya, Amami Yuki, Namase Katsuhisa
Tatsuya Fujiwara, Matsuyama Ken'ichi and Yamamoto Taro.
Ito Kaiji (Tatsuya Fujiwara) is an average worker, and has no meaning in life. One day, by accident, he meets Endo Riko (Yuki Amami) who tells him that he owns millions of yen, which he had lend. Kaiji, who doesnt know anything about it, freaks out saying that he doesnt have the money pay her back.
Then Riko invites him to join a competition on a ship that is going to make him get all the money, so he can pay back. As he joins the competition, he finds out that it is no ordinary game. In order to join the game, you have to borrow 3mio yen, but there are interests in every single minute. All hell breaks loose as every single player fights to stay in the game.
I can explain this movie in 2 words: insane and weird. The entire movie happens extremely fast, so I didn't really have time to step out and question everything. My mind became fixed on cheering for Kaiji, since he had over 100 mio in debt. Some things were disturbing, like the rich people eating dinner and watching gamers fall off a rooftop. For Ken'ichi Matsuyama fans, you wont get dissapointed, since his character is worth watching. The pairing up with the Death Note cast is so great that I actually replayed the 'bonding' scene over and over again.
If you like mind games, watch it. If you like Light and L together, watch it.

Mi layk dis muvi. Though I did get a bit confused,, i had a hard time catching up. It got really complicated at the end but that might just be me bit slow.. hehehe. I was like "Did he do it? Or maybe not, maybe he's trying to confuse him, or he wants him think that he wants to confuse him, or maybe this is just really simple? .." yeah and i gave up thinking bout that couse from my point of view its impossible to predict that. But dude seriously awesome movie. Its like money make people insane,, well not all but most people. Like so insane like when they never get enough money and when they got lots of it they dont know what to do with their lives anymore so they just watch poor people fight for their freedom and their lives and so they take advantage of them. Aaargghh most rich people just suck. How bout using ur money for something helpful. Idiots. Taking advantage of Light and L. Freaks, no life, they should b the ones working underground day and night for nothing.
Im gonna give this movie 4 ☆'s cause its bout poeple fighting againsk those STUPID rich dudes ! Fightoo-o! + Lighto-chan ^^
