September the 30th, the movie “Bunraku” had premiere in the United States. One of the leading parts was played by Gackt. In the movie, his character was named Yoshi.

Did I have too see it? Of course. ^^ To be honest, the only reason why I decided to watch it was because of this Japanese superman.

The story was quite lame and classic though. A typical revenge-story with good guys and bad guys. The cowboy without a gun was played by Josh Hartnett and the samurai without a sword was played by Gackt. Demi Moore played the part as a hooker. (She still looks so damn young.)

This was a hollywood debute for Gackt and I must say that he was excellent. (Not just because I’m a Japan-freak, but because he really was great.) I love martial art scenes and Gackt did all his stunts and fighting scenes by himself. He actually took Taekwondo lessons before the film-making in order to be prepared.

Wonderful fighting scenes.

One interesting thing with this movie though, was the choice of lightning and colors. Nothing seemed “real”, it looked a little bit cartoony, even though it was live action. If you’re a Gackt-fan, you absolutely must see Bunraku.
