29 Nov 2005 [ Japan Cinema News |[/FONT] Posted By: magic8 ]
Death Trance is a stylish over-the-top action fantasy film starring Japan’s newest star Tak Sakaguchi of Versus and Godzilla: Final Wars. Yuji Shimomura, best known for directing the fight sequences for Versus, makes his directorial debut. Death Trance also features Kentaro Seagal's first action movie debut (son of Steven Seagal).
Death Trance embodies a mix of the modern Samurai movie with highly stylized post-apocalyptic Mad Max cinematography. Filmed amongst the ancient ruins of rural Japan, Death Trance depicts non-stop battles between sword and gun, mortal and immortal, myth and reality within a stark desert and forbidden forest. Will destruction win or hope prevail?
