Right, well all I knew about "Destruction Babies" prior to watching it, was that it was a Japanese movie, which was essentially all that was needed to make me watch it. Well, and the fact that the title was pretty interesting too, did help of course as well.
Oh my god. Seriously? This is one of the worst movies I have seen in a long, long time. There was nothing to the storyline at all, no meat on this puppy. The entire movie, well at least the 1 hour and 5 minutes of the nearly 2 hours it ran for, that I endured, was nothing but one continual fight. Sure, the guy went from area to area and fought different people, but that was it. Seriously? Fighting? You can't base 2 hours of movies on senseless fighting and then try to spice it up with shallow subplots. It just doesn't pass as being entertainment.
I am a big fan of Asian cinema, but "Destruction Babies" (aka "Disutorakushon beibîzu") was just, and let me be perfectly blunt here, rubbish. Utter garbage and a serious waste of time, money and effort.
I managed to endure 1 hour and 5 minutes of rubbish, nothing more than a guy picking fights with just about everyone crossing his path. That was essentially the entire essence of the movie. Talk about being ludicrous and lacking proper contents. I just gave up at that point. I was ready to give up 20 minutes into the movie, but decided to keep watching it, as surely there had to be more to the story than just random fighting. Turns out there wasn't.
The actors in this movie required no acting skills, because it was just random laughable fighting and tossing out a random line of dialogue every now and again. So don't get your hopes up on seeing anything Shakespearian in "Destruction Babies".
This movie was rubbish, pure and simple. And there is no chance of me ever returning to finish the rest of the movie, because it was seriously a complete waste of time and does nothing to enrich your viewing experience in any manner. Stay well clear of this movie. Trust me.
