Adapted from the Weekly Shonen Magazine manga of the same name, Tsutomu Hanabusa's Tokyo Revengers is an action-packed high-school drama featuring time travel, gang rivalry and a love story. The same day that 20-something loser Takemichi finds out that his high-school sweetheart and her brother have been killed, he’s pushed in front of a subway train. But instead of dying, Takemichi winds up 10 years into the past. With sprawling gang fights, a twisting narrative, odd hairstyles and a heavy dose of humour, the film is a feast of fantastically frenetic storytelling.

This film contains scenes of strong bloody violence.
