Critic Reviews for Tokyo Ghoul (Tôkyô gûru)
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]
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.
Audience Reviews for Tokyo Ghoul (Tôkyô gûru)
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.
