Movie Review: Versus

Versus (2000) ***1/2 (out of 5 asterisks)
Director: Ryuhei Kitamura
Cast: Some Japanese actors that even if I recognized who them, I couldn't spell their names correctly

A martial arts zombie movie -- Kung Fu meets Night of the Living Dead. It's like a live-action anime. And it's truly silly and over-the-top ridiculous, yet never takes itself seriously. It's mindless fun, funny and entertaining. Only thing I didn't care much for was the ending -- seemed tacked on and too obvious an attempt at a twist ending. However, it's chock full of low-budget, B-movie fun. Enjoy it with pizza and beer and friends who also love martial arts and zombie movies.
