What went wrong?

Everything went wrong. Is this even same universe where Genji and Serizawa lives? Seems like not, because something is missing - the SPARKLE - they just lost it.


I'd like to think that Crows franchise isn't entirely about fighting and conquering Suzuran. What this one is lacking is that emotional aspect like us getting to know genji, serizawa etc and their characters + how they eventually lead Suzuran. You get what I mean? This one just gets on to the fighting real quick, there's too many cliques to focus on so you've lost me.

Fighting, fighting, and then some more fighting...

Not being familiar with the manga upon which this movie franchise is based, I have nothing to compare it to. So it is solely based on seeing the movie alone that I can review this 2014 movie.

First and foremost, I must say that the fight scenes in the movie were plenty and often quite good. But with that being said, I should also move straight on to saying that this movie was essentially nothing else than just one pointless fight scene after another.

I managed to last one hour into this movie before I gave up out of sheer and utter pointlessness to the movie. It was nothing else except fighting, and that wore thin already within the first half hour. But I decided to stick with it, as I would assume that the movie would pick up and add some story-telling to the layers. But no, that was not to be.

There was no storyline to "Crows: Explode" (aka "Kur?zu Explode"), none whatsoever. And that fact was something that the movie suffered from tremendously.

I just threw in the towel after 1 hour and I am not going to return to finish this movie, and I am not going to take the time to watch any of the other movies, because the torment of watching this for one hour was more than enough.

I can't even comment on the acting in the movie, because there was literally no acting in it to base such a comment on. I am sure that people in the movie were good enough fighters in each their own way, but it just didn't appeal to me in any way.

This is definitely for a fans of the manga, but for anyone looking for an entertaining movie that is driven by a story, stay well clear of this one.
