>>135654413 I can't believe so many people complain about the pacing. I went into it not knowing anything about it, and I felt it wasn't boring at all. Is it because everyone only saw the action-y gifs/Webms and thought that those were a good representation of the entire movie?
>>135655689 It's a mixture of misleading advertising and just being boring. And I say this as someone who enjoyed the 110 episodes of LotGH so I'm not against long scenes of talking but Jin Roh was fucking direly dull.
>>135655751 I'd hardly call it "misleading adverising" considering there's now way to make a 30 second clip of political espionage, or the formation of a relationship interesting, that's something that takes the entire movie to develop. The only scenes that make sense as an advertisement are the action packed ones.
>>135656662 It wasn't interesting exposition, the political intrigue side was nothing special, it was boring plot about one section of the police force wanting to get rid of another. It made no use of the larger setting of a world run by the nazis and focused on a set of very boring characters and a pretty uninteresting conspiracy.
>>135656662 The problem with the movie was its poor execution.
Forgot about those boring politic drivel. Even if you look at this story from a psychological angle, a story about a man grasping to what little humanity he has left while asking to himself a philosophical question that is central to the movie's theme, that is "Am I human or a tool?", the message just falls completely flat.
>>135656929 I'm not good at explaining this kind of thing, so I doubt I'll be able to sell it to you, but it wasn't just about the "am I human or a tool?" question, but about how the conspiracy/plan involved using the MC humanity as a tool. Everyone knew he was supposed to just be a tool, but he disobeyed orders because of his humanity. Throughout the movie the characterization scenes portray him as suffering from an internal conflict of being a Wolf, a member of the special unit, a tool, and a human. The cliché thing to do would be to have him choose his humane side over his sense of duty, but in the end he follows through with his mission, the mission he had all along, despite never resolving his internal conflict.
>>135658184 The reason it seems like they fight each other more than the enemy is because the movie is showing the climax of all the tension between them. It's like complaining that most of a war movie is fighting despite the fact that most of the time a solider is just sitting at a base.
