I'll be honest when I put Hell Girl on I expected another hyper low budget ghost themed embarrassment alike so very many others I've seen recently. It's not, not exactly anyway.<br/><br/>From the get go I was fairly impressed, the opening was stylish, the character development was fantastic, the script was strong and the cinematography was above par. For these reasons my expectations spiked, foolishly.<br/><br/>It tells the story of a group of ghost hunters on a "Job" who fall foul of a malevolent spirit. You know, the usual stuff.<br/><br/>Out of the gates I was enjoying it, but as soon as the movie really gets going it spirals into everything I feared that it was going to be. Don't get me wrong everything I said earlier still stands, everything is well above par and I have to tip my hat to everyone both in front of and behind the camera.<br/><br/>So why the low rating? Well the plot is just awful nonsensical tosh. No amount of quality everywhere else could save it from that, and Tom Sizemore! I don't know if his career has just nose dived to this level or if he's doing a Robert Englund and paying back to the industry that made him but he's starting to be a blemish on a movie rather than a bolster.<br/><br/>Better than what I expected it to be and very well made, but after about half way it turns real sour real fast.<br/><br/>The Good:<br/><br/>Michael Peter Harrison<br/><br/>Well made<br/><br/>The Bad:<br/><br/>Some elements are beyond stupid<br/><br/>Plot is just terrible<br/><br/>Tom Sizemore
