- For the Frank Marshall film see Alive: The Miracle of the Andes
is a 2002 Japanese action
and the fourth film by cult director Ryuhei Kitamura
. It stars Hideo Sakaki (the villain from Versus
, Kitamura's first important work) as the protagonist, Tenshu, with Tak Sakaguchi
(the hero from Versus
) having a small role as Zeros, the villain, at the climax. This film did not manage to gain as wide a cult following due to the slow pace of the storyline and virtual lack of action compared to Versus
(most of the movie takes place in one of two sets and dialogue is the focus); however, the director has a following and so the movie naturally has its adherents as well.
Ten cast members from Versus also appeared in this movie.
