Editorial Reviews

Drawn to the hardcore life of a delinquent, Hiroshi drops out of his upscale private school and enrolls in a gritty public school. On his first day he gets his ass kicked by Tatsuya (Hiro Mizushima, winner of 2010 Japanese Academy Prize “Rookie of the Year”), the son of an ex-yakuza and the leader of a pack of unruly thugs. Hiroshi sucks at fighting, but he hits it off with the crew and enjoys the reckless partying, smoking and boozing—but can he hang when a rivalry with a nasty biker gang turns into countless bloody, face-breaking brawls? When the allure of a wasted youth is pitted against the reality of growing up, some people would rather take a beating than stop the fun.

A fairly well made movie about a group of ner do well, want to be gangsters. Even with the violent scenes, there was an element of comedy, as this hapless group set about their miss chosen career of being "bad guys." A good evenings entertainment.

If you are thinking about getting this - GET IT!
A metaphor about growing up! Though I was never this much of a deliquent - the film did take me back to a simpler time and made me a little sad at its passing.
Fun, quirky, well done.

If you like a movie with a lot of fighting and some humor then this is for you. Great movie. The actors were great and very expressive. It was just really fun watching them play out the story. I would recommend buying it.

I thought the film was going to be just over the top silliness with crazy action but the film has heart and serious drama toward the end. There are laughs and crazy fights but Drop has more heart than I expected.

Judge Patrick Rogers, DVD Verdict-- Drop plays like a violent fantasy of a teenager who was never weaned off comic books, caffeinated soda, and Van Damme movies. Yet that's the entire point. At times, the film is like a tongue-in-cheek indictment of a vapid youth movement going through arrested development. This is only heightened by the fact that these characters are mostly caricatures whose lives have no meaning past fighting, stealing and cussing. And yet the film also has a heart to it. While some may take it as a sensationalized look at youth culture, it also heralds a certain philosophy of "boys will be boys" and that we only have one childhood to spend so why not live it with vibrancy? There's a sense of bonding happening between these kids. Just because it's a bond borne from violence doesn't negate the fact that it's meaningful and cathartic to feel a connection to another human being through similar fascinations. Those who take this film or the violence too seriously have missed the point of the film entirely.

The fight scenes are incredibly well staged and photographed. The director adopts a fluid, long take style to capture the hard hitting and realistic (to a degree) nature of these brawls. The cutting in action scenes is some of the most seamless I have seen in a long time. Fists look like they're actually pummeling eye sockets and the bats seem as though they're really cracking some spines. Never does a punch feel like it's being pulled and never does an edit look as though it's trying to hide something. Instead the editing helps to heighten the sensation of violence and struggle.

The most striking parts of the film, though, are how self-reflexive it can be and how it juxtaposes reality against comic book fantasy.

Who doesn't love a movie where they just run around beating the s*** out of people all the time. I enjoyed watching this movie very much. I'm also a huge fan of Hiroki Narimaya & Hiro Mizushima.

With Funimation best known for licensing action anime, it was only a matter of time before it ventured into the realm of foreign films, especially one as action-packed as Drop.

I've always seen casual mentions of school gang rivalries in titles like Yu Yu Hakusho and School Rumble, but Drop has been the first title I've seen to really delve into the subject. You're introduced to lead character Hiroshi, who (as the back of the box art word it) "drops out of his upscale private school and enrolls in a gritty public school." Given a premise like this, you'd think that the poor, sheltered teen would end up getting in over his head when he goes looking for attention from his new school's gang. However, you don't get much of that outside of the rude welcoming the gang gives him in one of the film's first scenes, making for something of a half-hearted, but still unique vibe--something the overall film gives off as you watch it.

As the film continues, you're slowly introduced to Hiroshi's delinquent friends, each of them with their own quirks and at the end of the day are alright people for the most part... the only exception to this being the gang's leader, Tatsuya, who comes off as cool yet bloodthirsty given the proper situation, always defending his random acts of violence by saying that humans don't die that easily. While we're given a good enough group of characters to work off from, however, we never truly get into the minds of each member outside of Hiroshi. We're never given a proper reason for why any of them decided to join a gang with the only explanation coming from Hiroshi's sister's boyfriend--apparently an ex-hoodlum himself who claims that school brawls acted as something of an extracurricular activity.

I enjoy watching this movie. The first time I saw it was on Netflix and I had to purchase it. I reminds me of some manga and anime that I have seen
