Product Description

Baseball prodigy Jubeh Yakyu (Tak Sakaguchi) is the most feared and dangerous juvenile delinquent in all of Japan. After accidentally causing the death of his father with a super-powered fireball pitch, Jubeh swore off baseball, but his life of crime leaves him in the Pterodactyl Juvenile Reformatory, at the mercy of Headmistress Ishihara, the granddaughter of a World War II Nazi collaborator, and her sadistic assistant, Ilsa. Despite having sworn never to play baseball again, Jubeh is presented with an ultimatum: join the reformatory team, The Gauntlets, in the national tournament, or witness the death of his innocent cellmate. Jubeh is now in a fight for his life against the sexy but deadly "psycho butcher girls" of the St. Black Dahlia High School. These teams are literally playing for blood! A hilariously offensive, politically incorrect sports splatter comedy, DEADBALL is director Yudai Yamaguchi's follow-up to his earlier zombie baseball classic BATTLEFIELD BASEBALL, and once again features action star Tak Sakaguchi (VERSUS, BE A MAN! SAMURAI SCHOOL). A riotous, over-the-top epic of excess, DEADBALL is the movie for the psycho sports fan in all of us, and more fun than a prison cavity search!

4.0 out of 5 stars LIVE TO DIE December 19, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Jubeh (Tak Sakaguchi) has a killer fastball...literally. He has some strange abilities such as being able to kill people with a blazing fastball and being able to pull a lit cigarette from out of the air that is off camera. He uses his talents to kill members of the Japanese mafia and chain smoke. He goes to prison for his vigilante crimes and is forced by his neo-Nazi warden to play baseball for the prison team against the St. Black Dahlia High School girl's team is what amounts to a set up we haven't seen since the likes of "Rollerball."

The film is campy funny. It has Troma style blood squirts as well as some dark comedy. It is a silly Japanese grindhouse with subscripts. Clearly a film not for everyone.

Parental Guide: F-bomb (written in English subscript). No sex. Male rear nudity. Worst cavity search scene.

Dead Ball is a madcap comedy with a goofy eye for humor. Bathroom jokes, midget jokes, bad jokes, awful jokes, honestly fun jokes, you have to take the good with the bad with this one. CGI gore mixed with real gore gags, this baseball game of destruction is highly enjoyable if you're its target audience.

Regular Joes: 3/5
Japanese cinema fans/5/5
Don't like Spoofy Comedies: 3/5

The Comedy is make or break. If you don't like juvenile, stupid humor, then avoid. But the gore is good, and the movie is fun. End of story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another splatterfest from Yudai Yamaguchi! April 16, 2013
Director Yudai Yamaguchi definitely knows what fans of splatter (like me) want to see on-screen. Blood geysers, decapitations, amputations...Yamaguchi knows how to deliver. DEADBALL is the famed director's most recent release, and it is a perfect addition to his canon of work. Although the film doesn't showcase much of anything new, it is vastly entertaining and certainly worth checking out.

I've been a fan of Yamaguchi's work for a while now, ever since I reviewed his film YAKUZA WEAPON a while back (unfortunately, the review is no longer available on my site since it crashed in December of last year). The director's over-the-top style combined with a panache for gore gives audiences a jolt of hyper-violence they will not soon forget. And his films are simply so much fun to watch.

DEADBALL is shot well and the acting is pretty good overall. I especially enjoy seeing Tak Sakaguchi onscreen; he is an exceptional talent and I always like to see what he does next. In this performance, his role as the sullen Jubeh, who always seems to find a cigarette in every seen, is exceptional. He personifies the bad-but-misunderstood hero.

What truly stands out for me in this film is, as expected, the gore. Director Yamaguchi goes above and beyond when it comes to special effects, and he showcases that talent in this film. DEADBALL contains some truly excellent gore and, as per his stye, it is presented in all of its zany, beyond-tasteless glory.

Although the premise might seem a bit far-fetched, you should never go into a Yamaguchi film with a serious mindset. If you do, you're bound for disappointment. But if you go into these movies with the right frame of mind, then you're in for a real treat. I recommend giving DEADBALL a look...just make sure you don't eat while you're watching it. Doing so might cause you to lose your lunch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still like the original better. April 13, 2013
By Hydra
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This one was wow I really cant understand where they come up with the sheer craziness of this one. It takes the original and adds crazy by 100. But I think it goes tooo far sometimes with some of the stuff. The original had charm, this one seems more shallow and lets be really crazy/wierd just to be weird. Still its a really cool movie just for Tak and his badassedness in most anything he plays in. So if youre a fan of the original Id recommend it, theres even a few nods to it in this which I enjoyed. This was a riot to watch with friends so Id recommend that setting watching these types of movies anyway.
