Don't Get It.
I think the main reason I checked this movie out was because of Miura Haruma and Go Ayano. I had watched many of their stuff and they are my favorite actors. This movie I just don’t get it. It feels like I’m watching a documentary on running a marathon…all they do is train and run and run some more. This movie is missing something I just can’t point out what. Some of your sports fantatic may like this movie or understand a deeper meaning to it…but I just didn’t get it. I felt like I wasted 120 mins of my life. Towards the end…you can sort of get what they are trying to do by showing each individual runner and what motivates them to run. So in a way this movie says to keep on running and believe in yourself that you can do it. Anyway, this movie would have been very good if the story was changed a bit and was portrayed differently. I only gave this a 6/10 coz of my bias with Miura Haruma…I was going to give it a lower rating.
