    The lighthouse bit was especially over the top. A "fun" movie, but one I have to be careful of which friends I show it to :lol

    I finally saw it on TV about 2 weeks ago, and within an hour of it finishing I was on my way to buy the DVDs.

    Brilliant film, one of my favourites.

    From what I hear, Katamari Prime is correct, the manga is completely fucked up.

    I've seen both movies (own them on DVD), own the novel and have read about half of the Manga.

    The extended cut movie is good in and of itself. But it will suck if you read the book or the Manga. Those were awesome.

    1st movie is decent, 2nd movie is garbage, book is great. manga is best (even the book's author has said he prefers the manga in many ways)

    I liked the movie, but the book/manga version of Kiriyama is miles better than the movie's faceless voiceless Terminator version.

    I wish I could un-watch the sequel, the first movie was good though.

    It's a good movie but not as good as the book/manga, I would remomend the book/manga over the movie any day. As has been said the manga is all kinds of fucked up people die left and right and if there shot it is drawn realisticly (like Shinji Mimura having to duct tape his guts in after being gut shot). I would recomend reading the book first then trying the manga.
