Sinking of Japan Movie

The first ever movie I saw in 2007 and after watching the trailer of the show I was indeed excited and hopes of it offering the same excitement and sorrow like Day After Tomorrow.

*Spoiler Alert*

Sinking of Japan is yet another disaster related movie on how earthquakes and tsunamis are threatening to wipe out Japan from the face of the earth. With a cast such as Tsuyoshi Kusanagi and Kou Shibasaki I was expecting to walk out of the cinema in tears and I actually did but not because I was moved by the show because I kept yawning my silly head off from all the excitement on screen leaving me teary eyed.

After watching the trailer I was in awe with all the special effects and seeing Japan being washed away and sinking bit by bit and when I finished watching the movie I realised that the trailer basically showed 80% of the action scenes from the movie. The movie was moving at such a slow pace I was tossing and turning in my seat and the movie has too many ups and downs. It builds up the anticipation and then just drops it like a bomb.

Tsuyoshi Kusanagi and Kou Shibasaki provided the romantic love story in the movie of a deep sea explorer and a rescue worker. It was a total let down as well and their supposedly love scene in the camp area was a total let down. I mean if the girl has to ask the guy for sex there's gotta be something wrong somewhere. Shouldn't stuff like this just happen especially in the movies ??

The scene where the scientist just found out that Japan will sink in about a year is also damn dramatic. He punches the damn monitor and starts shouting and then picks up the monitor and suprisingly it still works and the next day he went to brief the minister's about his discovery with bandages covering his hand and forehead which was damn funny lor .. hahaha

The solution provided by the scientist to save Japan is also rather unbelieveable and what's even more unbelievable is to pull it off they need to get help of drillers from all over the world to come and help drill holes into the earth so they can detonate the part of the crust that is dragging Japan down. Okay if they can get the help of drillers all over the world and have this high tech bomb that is able to generate enough nuclear power to do the required job, why on earth they only have 2 submarines to try to detonate the bomb.

The first one got destroyed and the second one was some antique submarine that only could go down to 2000 meters ?? I think where else the detonation device was close to 4000 meters this shows how good stuff made in Japan are. Hahahhahhaa and then can't they have a remote detonation device ?? I mean like OMG the second submarine was loosing power and was about to implode and he dropped the ballast and went flying through the sea towards the surface and just as he passed by the bomb device he switched on the power and navigate his way just to land right in front of the device so he could drop the detonation device in ??? What kind of crap is that ??

The Sinking of Japan is not only a movie about disaster but it turned out to be a disaster on it's own. Definately movie of the year... NOT !!!

What a way to start the new year ...
