YesAsia Editorial Description

Odoru Daisousasen was originally a TV drama about life at Wangan Precinct, a suburban neighborhood where its staff treats serving and protecting citizens more like an office job than a righteous calling. Its comedic take on policing and endearing cast of characters (led by Oda Yuji) proved to be a hit with audiences, spawning three highly-rated special one-off episodes and a hit award-winning film. The series has since become a cultural icon, with the film's sequel still holding the record as the highest-grossing live-action Japanese film ever. Intricately plotted by writer Kimizuka Ryuichi and stylishly directed by Motohiro Katsuyuki, this is where cultural phenomenon that is Bayside Shakedown all began!

The Wangan Precinct thinks they already have plenty on their hands when they have to host the enormous investigation of the police vice-commissioner's kidnapping, but that's only the beginning. Over the course of three days, Aoshima (Oda Yuji) and his fellow cops will also have to take down a sick internet-based murderer, and a thief that can steal anywhere - including the police station.

Product Information

Director: Katsuyuki Motohiro

In the Bayside Precinct, body of a drowned person sewn up with embroidery thread is discovered. A teddy bear is found in the victim's stomach during the postmortem. Bayside Police start investigating a "virtual murder" homepage the victim had often visited. At the same time, a string of petty thefts is plaguing the Bayside Station Criminal investigation Section. Suddenly, a swarm of helicopters and undercover cars from the Metropolitan Police Department descend on Bayside Police Station about another serious crime: the kidnapping of the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police District (MPD). A bizarre murder, petty theft, the kidnapping of an important personage: what sort of culprits can the investigation possibly turn up? And what lies in the future of Detective Aoshima, who always seems to find himself tangled up in major crimes? The most horrible three days in the entire history of the Bayside Police Station have only just begun...

A comic police procedural Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
"Bayside Showdown" succeeds as both a comedy and a thriller. Unlike most comic cop films, its comedy flows from police officers taking some of the absurdities of their daily routines too seriously. Thus, the comedy flows naturally from the story, rather than being force-fed with silly slapstick.

Three different stories are skillfully knitted together within the film. First, the Tokyo police commissioner has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom. Second, a twisted killer uses an internet site to troll for victims. And, third, an assortment of things, including receipts, is being stolen from police headquarters. As we follow the attempts to crack these three cases, we get real thrills and chills, timely doses of laugh-out-loud comedy, and even some political commentary about working within the law enforcement bureaucracy.

"Bayside Shakedown" is well-acted, well-written, and expertly shot. My only quibble with the film is that it excessively milks the emotions from some of its closing scenes. I recommend this comic actioner very highly.

Bayside Shakedown RULES! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
A few years ago, I caught a show on the International Channel in the US called "Spirited Criminal Investigative Network." This was one of three names given to the show that this movie is based on. After the first episode that I got to see (I missed the first three eps) I instantly fell in love with the characters and the style of the show. When I saw this was available in a format I could watch, I grabbed a copy right away. It didn't disappoint. It actually reminded me why I miss the TV show so much. This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is so refreshing after years of watching the crap that US Television puts out for "cop shows" to see one that has fun, but takes itself seriously as well. If this were an American movie, the opening would be an intense showdown, instead of what it ends up being, which I won't say so I don't ruin anything for anyone.
Just, if you are on the fence about wheter to see this or not, get off the damn fence and GET THIS MOVIE!!

Good! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Ahh Bayside Shakedown. What a good movie. It is a lot of fun, you will laugh a lot. It's more of a comedy mixed with a serous murder mystery. This makes for a little different flavor than your typical movie. This is a movie that I can watch at any time and know that I will be entertained. Get it! It's cheep and you will love it.

Bayside Shakedown Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
To Whomever is reading this review, I have seen a lot of movies. I've just recently about a year ago to watch more and more movies outside the US, for example, Hong Kong, Japanese. The movie Bayside Shakedown will keep you in suspense all the way to the end of the movie. With all the movies I've been watching, I considered Bayside Shakedown to be one of the top ten movies of all time. There a lot movies today that have special effects in them, for example, Matrix or A Man Called Hero (Hong Kong movie), they both tell a story with special effects and computer animation to increase its visuals to the audience. But B.S. doesnt' have any special effects in it. The movie deals with real in modern times. Some of the things I really enjoy this movie,is how each character being played, plays each roll so great that you would think the movie is real itself. The actors who each role in the movie plays it so well. Also what I like about the movie, is how the movie reflects upon how modern day procedure goes about dealing with the situation, the politcal desicion involved in it and how modern day criminals act. What I really like about this movie is how this movie made me laugh all the way to the very end of the movie and how the music not only enhances the scene its in but the mood you are feeling watching and observing what is going on. If you are thinking about buying this movie or looking for a Japanese movie to watch on a Friday night then this movie is your pick. You can't go wrong with this.
