Since I have absolutely no experience with Mikiya Mochizuki’s manga, I can’t say for sure how true Eiichiro Hasumi’s upcoming adaptation stays to the source material. What I can say for sure is that “Wild 7” looks to be an insane amount of fun. Explosions, motorcycle shoot-outs, and copious amounts of pointless slow motion — that’s almost everything you could possibly ask for in a Japanese action movie. And that’s just in the trailer! Imagine the multitude of mayhem that awaits those who investigate the entire motion picture. My mind can’t process the awesomeness.
A synopsis? Why, certainly:
To combat rising crime and terrorist activities in Japan, the Japanese National Police Agency authorizes the formation of a secret motorcycle unit known as the Wild 7. The motley group consists of reformed convicts – ranging from simple thugs to former Yakuza members. The Wild 7 are tasked to take out criminals the police cannot touch – due to the criminal’s connections with politicians and wily lawyers.
“Wild 7” stars Eita, Kippei Shiina, Ryuhei Maruyama, Tsuyoshi Abe, Takashi Ukaji, Yusuke Hirayama, Minoru Matsumoto, Kyoko Fukada, and Jun Kaname. Look for it in Japanese theaters on December 21st, 2011. The trailer you seek rests below.
