Courtroom dramas are all kind of the same. They’re tense, they’re slow moving and they can have a profound effect left on you. Courtrooms just make great settings for films. The drama is all built in, as well as the tension.
So what happens when you take all of that and amp the cheese and craziness factor to a million? Ace Attorney. Ace Attorney is actually a series of mystery adventure courtroom games for the Nintendo DS. The games are very popular and focus a young up and coming attorney named Phoenix Wright. Do you see where this is going? Yeah, needless to say the cases you solve are friggin’ insane.
The notable thing about this video game adaptation is that it’s directed by Takashi Miike, who has brought us the fantastic 13 Assassins and Ichi the Killer. If there’s one video game adaptation you want to see, and you don’t mind foreign films, you probably should watch this. [via IGN]
