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!

"Deadball" may be the first sports splatter comedy. Baseball prodigy Jubeh Yakyu (Tak Sakaguchi) is the most feared and dangerous juvenile delinquent in Japan. After accidentally causing the death of his father with a super-powered, deadly fireball pitch, Jubeh swore off baseball and turned to crime and now, at 17, has been sent to a reformatory for hardened criminals.

Headmistress Ishihara, the granddaughter of a World War II Nazi collaborator, runs the institution with an iron fist and the enthusiastic help of sadistic assistant, Ilsa. Shortly after arriving, Jubeh learns that his younger brother had done time there and died mysteriously. Jubeh is presented with an ultimatum by the governor: join the reformatory team in the national tournament for juvenile inmates, or witness the death of his innocent cellmate. Knowing that the death of his brother is in some way connected to the team, Jubeh agrees.

"Deadball" is an outrageously over-the-top movie filled with impossible situations, killer baseballs, grisly gore, and cartoonish, Amazon-like women. It intentionally attempts to offend practically every race, ethnicity, gender, and institution imaginable as it barrels along.

Bonus features on the Blu-ray release include a making-of featurette, cast interviews, spinoff short, and theatrical trailers.

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.
