I loved it till they had Koyuki sing, and they used violins or something to represent his voice instead of someone actually singing. At first I thought it was figurative of how nice his voice is, but then they used in during the climax scene, and just undermined the entire movie.

For some reason I hate these movies with a passion.
It might be because it paints the school and the students in a comical way, graffiti every, Yoshihiko kicking a cg water tower, etc. Feels like it shits on what the manga portrayed, which was more subdued and realistic since it was supposed to be a contemporary reflection of real life delinquency.
