Crows Zero 2 - Comes to DVD!

Hello Folks,
I bring you news of an exciting UK DVD release of the awesome director Takashi Miike's Crows Zero 2 coming to DVD, The 1st film in my opinion is a true Miike classic and it's great to see that the sequel is finally getting a DVD release, i personally cannot wait to see it!
I have stuck the release details below and watch this space for a review coming very soon,
Jonny T.

“Miike directs with an energy, velocity and cheeky bravado that are pure punk.”
– The Japan Times
On DVD 02 Jul 2012


Director Takashi Miike (13 Assassins; Ichi The Killer; Audition), manga creator Hiroshi Takahashi (Crows Zero; Worst; QP) and stars Shun Oguri (Sukiyaki Western Django) and Kyosuke Yabe (Samurai Zombie; Dead Or Alive: Hanzaisha).

“Crows Zero” introduced us to Genji Takiya, a student recently transferred to the notorious Suzuran Senior High School for Boys, Japan’s lowest achieving and most violent school, nicknamed “The School of Crows” after its students’ tendency to band together in conflicting factions and battle each other for domination.
Picking up immediately where the first film ended, “Crows Zero II” sees Genji as the head of the now-unified student factions following his successful but very bloody takeover of Suzuran. But his victory has left him unsatisfied and the uneasy peace amongst the students is, in reality, nothing more than a powder keg waiting to explode. Making the situation even more volatile, a truce that has been maintained between Suzaran High and its bitter rivals at Hosen Academy is about to come to a violent end.

“Delivers an extra dose of epic fights with hundreds of cool-looking students involved and a powerful rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack.” – TWITCHFILM.COM
“Good, stylish comic book fun.” – LOVEHKFILM.COM
“Miike jolts the narrative with unexpected directorial flourishes… the velocity of the action makes for an exhilarating cinematic dance.” – VARIETY
“The grungy production design is an artfully composed delight.” – VARIETY
