Here's the thing about upcoming Japanese action comedy Kid's Police
. Based on a television series of the same name it revolves around the central premise of recreating 1970s style, hard boiled Japanese cop thrillers with the goofy twist of having little kids play all the key roles done up in period costume. The big hair, the well tailored suits, the big ass shotguns ... these kids handle them all. It's hystericall funny but the sort of funny you'd expect to wear thin fairly quickly.
Except - and here's the thing - the more I see of this, the more I'm convinced they've made an actual movie
out of it rather than just delivering a single goofy joke. Much like the recent OSS 117
films the creators here have done a remarkable job of recreating a period, the kids are hugely charismatic and even the action looks really good. Hell, why isn't Japan making action movies like this with adults anymore!?!
All of this to say that after a pair of teasers the full trailer for this one is freshly arrived on the scene and it has confirmed right to the core of my being that this is the film I want to see more than any other this year. I'm not joking. Check it below.
