Featured reviews for

Go
Midnight Eye, by Jasper Sharp source: http://www.midnighteye.com/reviews/go.shtml
«Go's dramatic trajectory may be a fairly well travelled one, but in its stronger moments, such as the romantic interplay between Kubozuka and Shibasaki, it's undeniably affecting, and as such, one of the most outstandingly compelling and thought-provoking films of its year.»
LoveHKfilm, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/panasia/go.htm
«Confidently directed teen comedy/drama which is refreshingly engaging and thrilling, though it eventually settles into your standard by-the-numbers teen melodrama. Still, the uncommon intelligence, well-staged scenes, and some canny performances make this a worthy experience.»
KFCCinema.com, by Daniel Nguyen source: http://www.kfccinema.com/reviews/drama/go/go.html
«‘Go’ is definitely a movie worth checking out sometime. It’s got a good underlying social commentary, good fight scenes and equally good drama to back up everything it’s already got going for it. »
Eye for Film, by Keith Hennessey Brown source: http://www.eyeforfilm.co.uk/reviews.php?film_id=9316
«An exhilirating opening - all freeze frames, slo-mo, jump cuts, cut-to-bangin' techno - gets your attention. Understandably, it proves impossible to sustain this level of intensity, though the rest of the film is far from post-orgasmic comedown, with moments of brilliance.»
Lunapark6, by luna6 source: http://lunapark6.com/go.html
«“Go” deals with a topic rarely seen in Asian films and that is of the racist prejudices that exists among the different countries in that region. Movie is recommended.»
