Audience Reviews for Deadball (Deddoboru)

A boy with a literally deadly fastball grows up to become a vigilante, is imprisoned, and is blackmailed into playing on the jailhouse baseball squad despite the fact that he has sworn never to use the fatal pitch again. This grossout gore comedy has a cheap, rushed, "that's good enough" feel about it, and with the incoherent plot and jokes about puke-eating and body cavity searches, it seems to have been written by a team of particularly immature twelve-year-old boys during breaks on the playground.

Yudai Yamaguchi's Deadball, which looks to be closely related to Battlefield Baseball, is as wacky as its title sounds.With a plot that is easy enough to follow, everything gets swallowed up by all the antics that take place in 100 minutes of screen time. Ultimately, the story is there to connect everything together. Yamaguchi's humor is scattered throughout; however, the violence and gore calls a lot of attention to itself, which ends up taking away from the more sophisticated writing.The brutality is extreme, as in over the top, and so are the effects that come with it. Too hilarious to be serious and too bloody for the weak-stomached is how Deadball plays outTak Sakaguchi has got the right persona for his character. Mari Hoshino successfully finds herself playing a male character, while the rest of the cast are made up of obnoxious and overacted characters. The lovely females of St. Black Dahlia High School are worthy of note.The chance for Deadball to head down a more humorous and less violent path is there, but all in all, there is enough entertainment value in this production.
