    Don’t let the title fool you…

    This is a fun movie. It’s based on a well established animé and in that
    respect this is essentially another installment to that franchise.

    For those who do not know, Assassination Classroom is a rather silly
    sci-fi premise. The large yellow character being the protagonist and
    also teacher of said classroom. His students are allocated to the class
    for various reasons but all are developing assassination skills – for a
    very important reason.

    I found the movie to be quite funny. Those with little or no
    understanding of the subject may find it frustrating however. The title
    features some original (albeit ridiculous) scenes but this just plays
    off of the original series. It’s easy to follow, entertaining and just
    plain weird.

    An Out-of-This-World Concept That Settles for All-Too-Familiar Spoils

    A sufficiently absurd live-action adaptation of a long-running manga /
    anime series, in which a giant, yellow, tentacled, smiley-visaged alien
    spends a term as visiting professor at a Japanese middle school. Having
    already annihilated a majority of the moon, he’s promised to do the
    same to Earth if he survives the class, though a core subject is his
    various weaknesses and how to exploit them. So basically, pop culture
    in Japan at its usual level of overly-specific weirdness. It’s actually
    a great recipe for fresh stories – downtrodden kids from a discarded
    class learning the ins and outs of the assassination game at a very
    young age – but often gets tripped up by its own rules and a desire to
    be more than just a silly dash of action nonsense. The CG can be
    interesting, too, but there’s so much exposition that, as a non-native
    speaker, I was always too focused on the subtitles to properly
    appreciate it. Several desperate attempts to make an emotional
    connection near the end seem misguided and ineffective, merely
    distracting from the main attraction. Too much fake heart and not
    enough real heat.

    A wild ride with a weird pace

    Let me start of with saying that I have seen the Anime, and I didn’t
    know it existed until i tumbled on this movie.

    I had no clue what to expect when I decided to watch this movie, I was
    little worried to be honest. It’s based on an Anime so i realized it
    might get crazy, and it did. The first 30 minutes of the movie or so
    were very enjoyable. It had a solid pace and was pretty funny. But
    after that I felt it was losing itself trying to tell the stories of
    too many characters. I found myself confused to who the main characters
    where and had a hard time bonding with the students, while that was
    obviously the intention. The only character I bonded with was the
    teacher. Towards the movie got a lot better, and everything seemed to
    be coming together again. The dialogue was a little vague sometimes, as
    if they were trying to push life lessons on you (But it might have been
    the translation).

    The movie was enjoyable, but i had a hard time figuring out what kind
    of movie they wanted people to see. It was too silly to be serious, too
    serious to be silly. In the end this movie was just trying to push too
    much genre’s at one, and it didn’t work out. It was worth the watch,
    and I will suggest to people who like Anime, Crazy B-movies or just
    this type of aesthetic. Watch this movie with realizing this is based
    on an Anime. Just like making a movie based on a TV-Show its hard to
    push in a story in about 2 hours.

    A strange tale of class E.

    I had zero idea about the film. Anybody who reads the title correctly
    would think it might be a horror or a crime-thriller. It was the same
    case for me as well. This is a strong name for a children’s film,
    particularly in the west. Remember ‘Jack the Giant Killer’ was renamed
    as ‘…Giant Slayer’ for the same reason. But adults do not care,
    especially the youngsters. Such films are measured by how much blood
    shed. Anyway, it was well designed. From the story to the characters.

    So this was adapted from a famous manga series of the same name.
    Recently an anime series as well made out of it and was received so
    well. The creativity has no limits, that’s how Japanese manga and
    animes flourished when the western world shifted their focus on 3D
    animation. Even the Marvel and DC made a bigger stride in motion
    pictures. This is an alien invasion theme, but very unique, probably
    only kind. It is more like a computer game than a film. Just take a gun
    and have a great time killing the strange creature(s). Just like most
    of the films in the ‘Resident Evil’ franchise.

    From the director of ‘Oppai Valleyball’. The film is about the students
    and their class E from a junior high school that was invaded by an
    alien intelligence. He who claims the responsibility for most part of
    the moon’s disappearance and pledged to do the same to earth by the end
    of the year. Now with the full support of government and armed
    agencies, the class E students are given full license to kill the alien
    and win the great prize. Provided them human friendly weapons and
    assassination training, the game begins.

    ❝Even though he’s a powerful who can destroy the world, everyone is
    saying he’s quite good at teaching.❞

    By learning the storyline, you might think it is easy, but that’s the
    trick part. Because Korosensei (the name was given to it by class E
    students) is lightening fast and no bullet can hit him. You can call it
    something like Japanese version of ‘The Flash’. Even he looks like a
    smile emoji with weird smiling sound, but the facial expression changes
    according to the situations like the different emoticons.

    The concept of the film definitely looks great for manga and anime, but
    live-action is different and they did make it work. The film was close
    to two hours, and they filled it with quite interesting stuffs. That
    means I did not face any trouble with the film’s pace. Most of the
    story takes place in the classroom and its surroundings. Great
    character, as well, well developed story at different levels to make it
    a good entertaining product.

    Despite Korosensei is the villain, he was quite likable character. His
    dialogues, his dedication in teaching, he can be easily forgiven, but
    his threats are very serious. It’s a matter of defending the earth and
    human pride. So that’s the major difference between humans, including
    class E and him. But all this is in a comedy film, that’s the great
    about the film. Honestly, I did not get a few jokes, as they are meant
    very close to the Japanese sense of humour. But still a very enjoyable
    film by outsiders.

    There’s already a sequel was made by the same director called ‘The
    Graduation’, but it was not as successful as this one. I can’t rule out
    anything till I saw it myself. Hope I would see it as soon as possible.
    Meanwhile, if you haven’t seen it yet, surely worth an attempt. But
    don’t expect too much fancy like the western sci-fis. If you are
    familiar with the Japanese style of storytelling, you would know your
    limit. Like many manga adaptations to the big screens, I’m very
    thankful. Because I’m unlucky to get a chance to read those mangas as I
    can’t get them anywhere near me. Anyway, I’m not a book guy, but films.
    So this format works for me and I’m loving it.

    7/10
