YesAsia Editorial Description

Shot in Taiwan, Zeze Takahisa's Moon Child is a sleek action thriller starring superstars Hyde, Gackt, and Leehom Wang. It is set in the near future in a fictional Asian city called Maleppa. A hotbed of crime and drugs, the city is the home to Sho (Gackt) and his gang of desperate criminal associates. Into this group comes Kei (Hyde), a pale, young vampire who has deep ties to Sho. Kei joins the group, which now also includes Son (Leehom Wang) and his younger sister Yi-che (Zeny Kwok), until a grisly event at once reaffirms the bond between Kei and Sho, but also forces Kei to once again flee Maleppa. Years pass and allegiances are switched, but the worlds of Kei and Sho are on course for one last collision...

    Blu-ray version Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    As the other reviews have probably led you to believe, whether you like or loathe the content this movie will depend greatly on your personal preference – this is not a film that is easy to review on an objective basis. I liked it a great deal, but I can understand how some viewers would never “get” it.

    Because the content has already been reviewed extensively on this site, my review is mainly a technical one about the newly released Blu-ray version. The original US DVD release (from TLA) looked shoddy, having elevated black levels, a soft-looking transfer, and a stereo-only soundtrack. While the Blu-ray greatly improves this, it still has elevated black levels; I had to turn down the black level control on my Oppo BDP-93 to –7 to get the black levels where they should be. In addition, the transfer has narrow black bars in both the vertical and horizontal directions, and to eliminate these, it was necessary to adjust my display for about 10% overscan. The good things are that the Blu-ray offers a dynamic sounding surround audio mix and is much sharper than the DVD. I suspect that its remaining lack of sharpness compared to the best Hollywood Blu-ray releases reflects limitations of the source material; this was a very low budget film compared to any action movie that Hollywood would release theatrically.

    Disk 1 of the Blu-ray release (the movie itself) provides good English subtitles, but none of the extras on the second disk are subtitled. Except for a brief interview with actor Leehom Wang in perfect English, nothing else will be comprehensible to those who do not understand Japanese.

    Finally, I would have expected the extras to include the full nine minute version of the film’s leitmotiv – the song “Orenji No Taiyou (The Orange Sun),” as taken from the 2003 DVD of the Gackt “Moon” live concert that reunited many of the Moonchild cast. Unfortunately, only the first part of the song appears in the extras and it is not taken from the live concert performance.

    Nevertheless, if you are a fan of this film and want a much-improved presentation compared to the TLA DVD, you should grab this disk before it goes out of print. It’s likely that this is the highest quality home video release that this film will get.

    In defense of neagtive reviewers Customer Review Rated Bad 2 - 2 out of 10
    A little extra ... a lot of positive reviews seem to say that all negative reviewers (like myself) don't like the film because we can't understand the storyline .... I just wanted to clarify that, for me anyway, is not the case. The stroyline is so straight forward that there is much to get confused by ..... its just bland..... but having said this is you are Hyde and Gackt fans I am sure you will wet your knickers with excitement at seeing your heros on screen!

    120 mins of my life I will never get back Customer Review Rated Bad 4 - 4 out of 10
    I love a good vampire themed romp and so I was super excited to get to watch this Japanese offering. But this is one Vampire film that I will be happy never to watch again!!!

    The film starts of with many good intentions …. The opening has the feel of Chunking Express, a jerky camera chase sequence through the streets of Shibuya which climaxes in the suicide of a vampire …. Death by sunlight…nice!!!
    But this is really where my enjoyment ends….

    The storyline was boring and overly long. It was always jumping forward in time with little explanation or development of the characters. Despite having two major J-Rock stars in the cast the soundtrack was the most appalling one I have heard for ages as it ranged from a jazz version of ‘Mr Bo jangles’ and ‘My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean’ …. Yep you read that right … ‘My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean’ ….. no joke!!!!!!

    There was a couple of good action sequences with a few worthwhile stunts but unfortunately these weren’t memorable enough to save the film as a whole. As for the acting … Hyde was fairly good but Gackt was pretty bad. He over-acted all the time as which made the character too ridiculous for you to take seriously! Plus he seems the type of guy who spends too much time in front of the mirror!!!!

    All in all if you are a Hyde or Gackt fan you will probably love this, unfortunately I’m not so there was nothing to keep my interest …. Now there’s 120 mins of my life I will never get back!!!!

    Beautifull Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    I found the beginning very funny. The acting is totally different than the American acting. The acting in this movie is to much. But still it was really funny. I am a huge fan of Gackt, and after seeing this movie i love him even more. You shouldn't focus on the acting, but what the movie is about. And don't try to find 1 subject. It's about everything. How the world can really suck, that it is a dangerous place, but that you still have friends, and some things will turn out right. It's romantic, it's hilarious, it's a little bit of action, and it is too cry for.

    I really loved this movie. I did get lost in the middle part, because they sometimes jump a few days, months or even some years forward. So I didn't really understand what happened to Kei. But they do say it, that's a blank spot that you have to fill in your self. And you will find those kind of things troughout the whole movie.

    So if you are a Gackt fan or a Hyde fan (Hyde really is hot in this movie ;o)
    Then you really must watch it !!

    hm... Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I must say that I have never experienced a tale of better brotherhood than this film. The plot is thick and the violence is real, but the heart never wavers in this film. HYDE and Gackt played the excellent pair and should be commended for their acting. I was also surprised when I realized that Wang Lee Hom was in the film. ^^

    I do believe that when it comes to the viewer, you'll either get it or you won't (hence the mixed reviews from people.) Some say its the worst film while others call it a masterpiece. People also need to realize that this film was made back in 2004. Its really not right to compare the graphics to the current times. For a movie made in its time frame, I thought they did a pretty good job.

    Also, if a person doesn't understand the movie, they won't understand the character. There's a connection you feel with each character in the film that really hits you hard near the climax of the movie. It's hard not to shed some tears near the end (well, for a female at least. ^^)

    For those who want to try this film, get ready for some serious gun violence. (Not for your 15 and under kid). Also, this is not really a vampire film. The message goes beyond "vampire genre". There's really only 2 in the entire film.

    It's good to be a bit open-minded with this movie because there's so much beneath the surface, yet its hidden well to the point where some viewers become frustrated and begin to hate it. The story is amazing. The threads of friendship always stay strong no matter how thin they appear to be.
