Jujutsu Kaisen 0

Yuta Okkotsu is a nervous high school student who is suffering from a serious problem—his childhood friend Rika has turned into a curse and won't leave him alone. Since Rika is no ordinary curse, his plight is noticed by Satoru Gojo, a teacher at Jujutsu High, a school where fledgling exorcists learn how to combat curses. Gojo convinces Yuta to enroll, but can he learn enough in time to confront the curse that haunts him?

    Exciting characters and action carries fractured plot
    JJK-0 offers a mouth-watering prologue to the first season coupled with some familiar faces and the consistently brilliant animation we have been accustomed to with Mappa.

    Where the visuals shine, the story is rather lacklustre in its execution, the ending lacks tension due to pacing issues highlighted by the stringing together of the plot. This is however largely unavoidable due to the manga - chapter style progression that doesn't lend itself to a film structure. Thus the film suffers at times from feeling like separate episodes rather than one arc.

    However, this can be ignored because JJK 0 is fantastically enjoyable. Gojo Satoru is as always a treat and we get more depth given to his character. The Yuta Okkotsu that was absent in S1 is given a role as the protagonist that allows the darker world of Jujutsu Kaisen to shine in a way we haven't seen before.

    Explosive action and unique characters in a occasionally patchwork plot that builds upon this exciting universe.

    Not worth a theater watch
    I had high hopes for this movie after watching JJK anime and reading the manga as far as it had been published. Unfortunately, this didn't deliver. I couldn't care less of the main character or the girl, who was the 2nd main character. Whatever happens to them, well, whatever. That's a very bad thing when the movie revolves around the boy and the girl and their fates.

    It felt more like a fanfiction where someone wrote themselves as the main character. Not something I'm opposing, all fans should write themselves in any fanfics they want, but not something I'm interested in consuming.

    I wanted to see JJK movie, not a JJK self-insert fanfic.
