Melodramatic and Boring
6 January 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Tokyo, the shy student Kaneki Ken (Masataka Kubota) dates the girl Kamishiro Rize (Yû Aoi) and while in a lonely park, she attacks him since she is a flesh-eater ghoul. Kaneki escapes but soon he learns that he has become a ghoul. He befriends a group of peaceful ghouls and tries to live his new life with them. However they are hunted down by relentless two police officers from the Ghoul Division in charge of eradicate ghouls from their district.

"Tôkyô guru", a.k.a "Tokyo Ghoul", is a boring and melodramatic Japanese action-horror film based on the legend of the flesh-eaters ghouls. The cinematography and performances are good, but the action is broken by melodramatic scenes and the film becomes boring. My vote is four.
