YesAsia Editorial Description

Japanese Cinema's new-found zeal for nationalistic war movies continues with Aegis. Adapted from the novel by Harutoshi Fukui, (whose work also inspired two other recent military thrillers, Lorelei and Sengoku Jieitai), Aegis plays very much to an international audience with its story of international terrorism and seemingly invincible heroics.

The Isokaze, an Aegis-class escort vessel, sets sail on a routine training exercise, playing host to a platoon from the Fleet Training Group. No sooner is the Isokaze on open water, however, then the FTG reveal themselves to be terrorist stowaways who kill the ship's captain, send the rest of the crew overboard and take control of the vessel. The ship is carrying a secret biological weapon which the terrorists are now threatening to use to level Tokyo! Only a stowaway NCO, Sengoko (played by Sanada Hiroyuki from Ring and Twilight Samurai) is in a position to stop them - but does he really have what it takes to save the day? Playing like a cross between a sea-faring version of Top Gun and Die Hard, director Sakamoto Junji shows that it's not just Hollywood that can produce thrill-a-minute action spectaculars.

Very disappointing Customer Review Rated Bad 1 - 1 out of 10
The ending is just too badly written and unconvincing:-( The computer graphics in the final scene is so bad that you can't believe this from a movie production.
