YesAsia Editorial Description

Beware of the parasite! Director and special effects whiz Yamazaki Takashi brings Iwaki Hitoshi's terrifying saga of alien invasion to life with the two-part Parasyte. A story that can be best described as Invasion of the Body Snatchers meets awkward coming-of-age comedy, Parasyte follows the adventures of a high school student whose right arm is taken over by a small alien parasite. Filled with mind-blowing special effects and shocking moments of violence, Parasyte Part 2 brings the thrilling saga to an explosive conclusion as mankind makes its stand against the parasites taking over society.

Following the bloody events of the first film, high school student Shinichi (Sometani Shota) has been acting as an increasingly unfeeling lone vigilante and taking out parasites with the help of Migi, the parasite nested in his right arm. His actions have attracted the notice of both the parasite leadership and the police task force investigating the mysterious epidemic of deaths. To save humanity from the increasingly organized and aggressive parasites, Shinichi must confront the most dangerous parasite of them all (played by Asano Tadanobu).

Professional Review of "Parasyte Part 2 (Blu-ray) (Normal Edition)(Japan Version)"

November 27, 2015

This professional review refers to Parasyte Part 2 (2015) (DVD) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
Director Yamazaki Takashi (The Eternal Zero) returns with Parasyte Part 2, following hot on the heels of the first chapter of the big screen blockbuster adaptation of Iwaki Hitoshi's popular manga. Shot back to back, the second instalment sees all the (surviving) cast members on hand again for more of the same, with the flesh-eating alien invaders pressing on with their plan to conquer the human race, resulting in more gore, special effects and bouts of ponderous philosophising.

The film picks up immediately where its predecessor left off, with high school student Shinichi (Sometani Shota, Tokyo Tribe) and Migi, the alien parasite living in his hand (voiced by Sadao Abe) continuing in their new quest to take down the invaders and their human hosts one by one. Thanks to an ever-growing number of mutilated bodies turning up, public awareness and anger gradually grow, and a special police task force is formed to deal with the menace, while parasite infected science teacher Ryoko (Fukatsu Eri, Villain) comes to terms with her human baby and new role as a mother. With the powerful and murderous parasite Goto (Asano Tadanobu, My Man) on his trail and a serial killer called Uragami (Hirofumi Arai, 100 Yen Love) getting involved, Shinichi tries to protect his girlfriend Satomi (Ai Hashimoto, The World of Kanako) at the same time searching for a way to end the alien threat.

Parasyte Part 1 was one of the better and more entertaining big budget Japanese manga adaptations of the last few years, and wisely with Part 2 Yamazaki Takashi basically sticks to serving up more of the same. While there's certainly an argument that the two could have been combined into one film, the story continues to play out in an engaging and semi-apocalyptic manner, building towards an eventually satisfying conclusion that ties up all the loose ends. This having been said, the second film does feel a bit overstretched in places, featuring far too many speeches and long, drawn out stretches of pretentious chat about human nature, needlessly slowing down the pace and distracting from the meat of the story – the last act suffers quite badly in this respect, the action stopping far too often to make way for another soliloquy or few minutes of pointlessly preachy dialogue. Matters aren't helped by the fact the film's message is made abundantly clear from early on, and though its environmental and social concerns are laudable enough, there's simply no need to have them hammered home repeatedly and clumsily.

Thankfully this doesn't derail things too badly, and though there's nothing terribly surprising along the way the film occasionally makes good use of the manga's many ideas and has an imaginative feel, winning points for a pleasing air of other-worldly oddness. Again a mix of genres, the second part has more of a coming of age focus, with Shinichi coming to terms with the effect of the parasite on his body and mind, as well as having to deal with his relationships with Migi and Satomi in more adult fashion. The film also benefits from spending time developing some of its other characters, and while the inclusion of the murderous Uragami feels rather random, the subplots involving Ryoko and Goto both work well and add further layers to the story.

As with the first film, Part 2 benefits from great production values and special effects work, with a slick, polished look that makes it visually impressive throughout and helps it stand out from some of its peers. Although there's less in the way of Cronenberg-style body horror set pieces and gory scenes of the aliens devouring their victims, the action quotient here is higher, especially during the second half, and these help to add a few dashes of genre fun – a little more of which would certainly have been welcome and which would have helped with the film’s pacing issues.

For all its lapses into drawn-out pomposity, Parasyte Part 2 is nevertheless an entertaining couple of hours of sci-fi horror fun, and a mostly successful manga adaptation that's good value as a big budget blockbuster. Undeniably overlong and in need of judicious editing, the film should still be enjoyed by genre fans, and stands as another quality offering from Yamazaki Takashi, now established as one of Japan's more successful commercial directors.
