Human Condition II

Posted by martinteller on November 14, 2005

Somewhat tediously one-note… the dehumanizing brutality of the military is beaten into your head almost as much as the soldiers beat each other on the head (which is a hell of a lot in this movie).  The slight shift in gears towards the end is welcome, but the first half really could have used some trimming down.  The repetition prevents this film from matching the emotional intensity of the first one, but the performances are excellent, the photography is inspired, and Kaji is a hero worth rooting for.  Rating: 8
