Audience Reviews for Abashiri Family (Abashiri Ikka: The Movie)
Teruyoshi Ishii gets the call to generate a live action movie based off of Go Nagai's manga Abashiri ikka.
The story is more than satisfactory for a lower budget film that runs just under 70 minutes, and the pacing is brisk with some good emphasis on characters. The introduction for the members of the Abashiri family is phenomenal, as the film uses many clip arts from the manga. In fact, this high quality introduction sort of degrades the rest of the movie.
The action isn't outstanding in any way. The gore effects are over the top and the CG is inferior; however, it all blends in with the off the wall nature of the film.
The eccentric cast of characters are amusing. The lovely Erica Tonooka is a nice pick for the lead and only daughter of the Abashiri family. Jiro Sato gets the gold star for the most wild overacting. The rest of the supporting cast easily fit into the other unusual characters.
Abashiri ikka hooks from the beginning and releases shortly thereafter, but by then the movie has reached its conclusion. In other words, this is a quick enjoyable sit through.
