Featured reviews for

Hard Luck Hero
[KFCC], by Janick Neveu source: http://www.kfccinema.com/reviews/comedy/hardluckhero/hardluckhero.html
«What started as a music video collaboration between Avex Inc. and Japanese director Sabu, ended up as a full motion picture with more than just simple commercial appeal for fans of J-pop band V6.In fact, it shares the same brilliant quality with other Sabu classics such as Monday, and Drive. While singer-turned-actor films are quite common place, these types of films usually end up flopping due to the studio’s desire for an extremely commercial product, and the generally poor acting ability of an inexperienced cast. Despite that usual misfortune, Hard Luck Hero doesn’t fail to impress by unfolding a great story and memorable characters.»
