[good point]
Memory will gradually return and the whole picture will be visible
Two Rotating Seasons Akashi
The compact configuration was compiled within a short period of about 1 hour 30 minutes

[Bad point]
All the members are concerned about gas which is lost in memory ... and so on.
In - depth discussion of human relationships was inadequate.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
I could enjoy more than I thought because I did not expect much.
The area around the closed factory waste disposal factory recalled "Reservoir Dogs" a bit.

The so-called closed room thriller. It's funny so much, but the settings are similar to Saw and Memento and put on the original.

I was concerned about the setting is sweet. First of all, five people got losing their memory at the same time by gas, and in the meantime no one has a wallet or credit card, I do not quite understand it, I put it on reality. What is even more strange is how kidnappers captive hostages. There is no reason why it makes it impossible to escape perfectly over such a large building by spending a lot of money on that wide building, although it can be easily restrained by blindfolding with a hostage and handcuffing. Furthermore, after this enormous building remodeling, just as you escape the hostage, it is unnatural that you restrain it with a rope that can easily be cut into a normal chair.
It is also minus that it progresses freely by the memory where the story partially returns. Moreover, the memory that comes back is a rule and nothing fun. Even though the mystery is making the audience mislead while proceeding, it is definite. There is no side story called tracking by two detectives nor any fun and no contribution to last Twist Ending.
The worst thing is that there are no hints in Twist, the two surprises that will come last. Twist. Saw and Memento do not understand something after digestion in the last Twist, after all the movies were made after Twist. Although there is a catharsis, if you see that last I have no choice but to think that it was good for a viewer's reasoning.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
It is not as bad as never to see. An interesting movie for those who do not think too deeply. usually.

Situation suspense in a closed room.
Ideas and composition are very interesting.
I think that the movie that gets nailed on the screen is done well. But〓〓〓
Even though the mystery is the motto, we are confined, the overview of the building is this!
And suddenly I wanted more space to be used as a closed room, such as contact with the outside.
Well it is similar to Saw and if it says the second bastion, it is there.

And there is a police presence in contact with the outside.
I also felt that I do not need it because it changes.
After all it is the last that is on its own.

So I think that the last two turns three turns, the punch line that has been refined so far is necessary!
It is hard to lose memory. Eventually double and triple spies will result like this ... ...
I feel like I am making the most of using memory loss.
Just a little more just as the situation was good in the configuration!

I think it is a cleverly scenario.

The initial setting of the story is very interesting.
... but, just as it was, I wanted more flesh and made it inflate a little more. I think that it was supposed to be more spectacular.

Although there is no strange scene like "SAW", I do not get tired of the story development that makes two or three turns, and it seems fun to watch the whole thing become obvious as it gradually becomes clear.

The point that I am skillfully directing the flashback is excellent.

Five men who woke up in the closed room who lost their memory, and eventually found out that three of five people were kidnappers and two were hostages. Are you a kidnapper or a hostage? Who can you trust?
For those who like "cube" and "saw" it is one work I highly recommend. After seeing the unpredictable outcome the title "unknown" will come to heavy.
