Stylishly decorated and generating all-important sympathy for a character living precariously in two worlds, director Kentaro Hagiwara's feature debut gets the drama right but is let down by visual effects that are sometimes unconvincing.
Thus... the film ends up being a Japanese and teenage nephew of Cronenberg's version of The Fly. [Full review in Spanish]
It's too long... [Full Review in Spanish]
The effects are a bit ropey, but everything else is just slick enough for a franchise.
Tokyo Ghoul definitely captures the spirit of the manga and fans are likely to enjoy it. For all its imperfections, it's a likeable film with plenty of energy and verve.
A beautiful but flawed adaptation.
While not flawless, TOKYO GHOUL is an entertaining, rollicking ride that doesn't disappoint die-hard fans of the original manga series and anime, or those simply looking for a fun night at the movies.
This is far from the best version of Tokyo Ghoul, but it is at least a fun movie so long as you're not looking for depth.
Provides blood-dripping horror entertainment, while also delivering a character-based story worth becoming invested in.
It's creepy, it's bloody, and it's ghoulishly fun. Just be careful what you eat while you're watching.
It is a pity that the director's vision often feels at odds with the film's more commercial obligations.
[Director] Kentaro Hagiwara's dark and violent Tokyo Ghoul is more nuanced and layered in its indictment.
Hollow and shallow, Tokyo Ghoul fails to bring a cinematic interpretation of its source material, instead bringing to life an uninspiring story that boasts no structure and simply goes on until the screen fades to black. This is a film that will be frustrating to watch if a fan and will be unsucessful to lure in new fans.
