The Warner Bros. live action adaption of Tite Kubo’s Bleach, has had a rough time earning the respect of fans as it approaches its July 20th release. Some qualms may be calmed though as early Japanese movie critics are singing the praises of the movie after early viewings. A tweet from Japanese movie critic Fujimoto Yousuke has been making the rounds around Twitter and shows the most belief in the upcoming movie.
“By the way, I watched a “BLEACH” preview it was awesome. Director Shinzo Sato and action director Yuji Shimomuraput in the fruits of their labor. CG and action was used well for a very clever movie. It can be one of the best ever real-life adaption of the last ten years. How to summarize from the original, costume without cosplay feeling is also wonderful. Seriously impressed.”
Bleach will be in Japanese theaters July 20th, and may work out better than we all originally thought. We will have to wait and see.
