About JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Diamond is Unbreakable Chapter 1 Blu-ray

The movie, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable Chapter 1, was directed by Takashi Miike and stars Kento Yamazaki, Ryunosuke Kamiki and Nana Komatsu.

From the mind of Takashi Miike, one of Japan's most celebrated filmmakers, a bizarre and beautiful ride through Hirohiko Araki's megahit manga-turned feature film!

Welcome to idyllic Morioh, whose ocean views and charming townscapes make it a breezy Japanese utopia. But a chain of grisly killings has cast a bloody pall of uncertainty over its residents, especially Josuke Higashikata, a high schooler with offbeat hair and even more eccentric abilities. Now, with his grandfather on Morioh's homicide list, Josuke must resort to his surreal "Stand" powers if he ever hopes to heal his beloved family and town. Josuke may have a Stand-wielding relative at his side, but the killer has plenty of help too.

Special Features: Stand CGI Feature, Art Gallery, Japanese Movie Premiere.

Doesn't offend but doesn't "Stand" out at all

by

This is NOTHING like dragon ball live action! it definitely is the weakest addition to the series but really if it doesn't offend it. It could be so much worse. that said they played it safe and lines, acting, and scenes are literally word for word action for action straight from the Anime. the CG was pretty good considering its an Asian live-action. I'm not sure what people are seeking in these live-action editions but if you just want something more JoJo this is it and it's done good enough. If you want more Great JoJo, the Manga, and Anime are your best bet.

Surprisingly Solid

by -

I’m going to preface this by saying if you want manga accuracy or the full story, then go for the anime. This movie focuses on the Angelo & Nijimura Brothers arcs.

I’d say the pros are the costuming is fantastic and the casting is solid. It was nice to see more of Grandpa Higashikata. Character-wise, the Nijimuras easily stole the show. The special effects were mostly good, bar 2 small instances. It was fun to see the stands and I thought Bad Company was especially well-realized.

As for the cons, it’s mostly Jotaro. He seems like a fine actor and his English was really good, but he’s distractingly older than he should be. Some major changes will probably take any potential further adaptations off the rails.

So, would I recommend this? Yes, but know this is a different take. This reminds me of the Part 3 OVA (different beast from the manga/anime and has changes ranging from actually interesting to baffling). It’s the most watchable live action based on an anime I’ve seen so far.

Better Than It Should Be

by -

I'm not sure why everyone else is hating on this film, it's a fantastic adaptation for what it is. They made plot adjustments, sure, but I think they are smart adjustments to allow them to condense the plot. It throws in some references for part 6 (Do you feel the gravity between souls?), and does a smart job of making a live action Jojo. The special effects are top notch, and by showing the stands as little as they do is only for the benefit of everyone (less budget for the studio, less jarring for the viewer).

Would I say someone who isn't familiar with the original source material should watch this as any sort of replacement? Goodness no, but if you already know Diamond Is Unbreakable you'll get to pick up on the differences and some of the scenes where we get a different perspective on things.

Mostly Unbreakable

by -

As a big fan of Jojo, especially part 4, I was excited to see this. And while it wasn't what it could have been, it still knocked it out of the park in my opinion. I feel like if they'd cut certain parts short to further the story they might have created a better film, but as they used the first 2 big battles of part 4 for the film, it might end up more enjoyable to see this less as a movie and more as episodes 1 and 2 of a tv series. The effects were great, Josuke, Jotaro and the Nijimuras looked fine. Koichi didn't look much like Koichi, but that's a small matter. If you like Jojo, you should enjoy this film. Just make sure to get to part 4 before seeing it!

Pretty Good

by

The Live action Jojo movie is pretty good. I know everyone is scard of ' live action from anime/manga' but this on did a good job.
The actors did well.

I understand why parts of the story got cut out (if possible they could make more) and why some characters got show up early or minor characters get a little more, the ending did surprised me.

I think its a good film to watch.
