Japanese manga made live.

Smuggler - 2 / 5
The action genre these days requires a combination of sat paced action and the occasional slow motion sequence. This film only had the slow motion part. Which cool for a bit, gets old quickly, I almost fell asleep. I assume that this was a faithful adaptation of the manga, with live scenes that looked very much like they were lifted straight from the manga, but it wasn't my cup of tea. Highlight was when the projector was broken before the film, and Bobcat Goldthwait performed his standup act for 20 minutes to entertain the audience.

More films I saw with Katharine upcoming.
