Dead Ball (2011/or Deadball/Well Go USA Blu-ray)


Picture: C     Sound: C     Extras: A     Film: C+



Yakyu (Basball) Jubeh has been gifted with the Godly arm of baseball, but after accidentally killing his father with his deadly pitch, he has vowed never to play baseball again.  Years later, he uses his arm to fight crime and evil doers, but it ends him up in juvenile reformatory. There he faces sadistic headmistress Ishihara who forces him and the various inmates to play 'Deadball' against the 'psycho butcher girls' of St. Black Dahlia.


Yudai Yamaguchi’s Deadball (2011) is a death sport exercise with mixed results, taking place with much violence at The Pterodactyl Juvenile Reformatory the inmates are sodomized, tortured into playing 'Deadball' against the boobilious bad girls of St. Black Dahlia, where winning is getting the best bloody death of the opponent's team members for the headmistress's sadistic Nazi enjoyment, but Jubeh isn't just anyone's puppet, to find his brother and settle the score he'll show the headmistress, not everything goes her way.  


This movie was like a psychotic baseball nightmare, sort of like Shaolin Soccer meets Battle Royale (reviewed on Blu-ray elsewhere on this site).  Be warned there IS graphic sodomy, oral penetration, genital crushing, and other gross acts of a torturous nature, so expect NC-17 visuals.  This is a still comedy of baseball scat for those into over the top bloody death with mutilated bodies, granted there are hot girls, it is not for the faint of heart.


The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer is a sloppy, weak HD shoot that has plenty of motion blur, color, detail and depth issues.  The DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix is towards the front speakers, is not well reoc4rded and much weaker than expected.  Location audio issues are also pervasive.  Extras include spin-off short, making of the film, interviews, and trailers.
