Watch: Children & Hard Boiled Crime Unite in 'Kid's Police' Trailer
This is nuts! While people in the United States are debating about whether or not we should have guns, the Japanese are putting them in the hands of kids. Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but you'll see what I mean when you watch this amazing and hilarious trailer for Kid's Police, a parody of Japanese gangster flicks from the 70s with hard boiled crime and corrupt cops. All of the key roles from cops to criminals are played by kids, and the look, tone and style of the films this spoof is trying to emulate are captured perfectly. However, this looks less like The Naked Gun and more like Black Dynamite in its execution. Watch below!
Here's the trailer for Kid's Police, which was brought to our attention by TwitchFilm:
Actually, it sounds like there's a reason that the cops are kids in this flick. A plot description says:
Red Venus, with Yokohama as it's base, is an organization that mediates various crimes. In order to arrest such an evil organization, a Special Investigations Division was set up at the Kanagawa Prefecture Police Department. The group of elite detectives are just about to be able to get to the bottom of everything, when they fall for a trap. They get trapped in a harbor warehouse, where they are intoxicated with the special gas that the Red Venus created, and as a result the members of the Special Investigations Division…turn into children!!
Welcoming in an adult rookie detective, despite being in their child form, the Special Investigations Division continue on with their investigation to arrest the Red Venus. In the midst of all that, a murder case arises and the Red Venus is seen as responsible for it. While attending school, they continue on with their investigations! When they finally hone down on the suspect and just as they are about to get to the suspect, the Red Venus beats them to it. Will the Special Investigations Division really be able to arrest the Red Venus!? The battle of the child-turned Special Investigations Division begins!
Seriously, I want to see this movie now. It's basically a parody without being a parody, and that makes it even funnier. There's the likelihood that this gag could get old after awhile, but this trailer is incredible for anyone who has seen Japanese gangster films, and I will go out of my way to see this any way I can. Cool?
Best movie ever?

This actually has already been done in America. Look up "Hawk Jones" on Youtube.

The difference is that American kids will be the only kids in the world who will want to go out and shoot someone after seeing the movie. America.. what a country.

So this movie is apparently a late night TV drama in Japan (or rather, "dorama", given that's it's clearly a comedy). The show aired for one ten-episode season just last year. My question is: does anyone know if this movie is a reboot of that TV show, or is it a sequel that continues the story? Whether or not it's a remake may affect my decision to watch the show now, or wait for the movie first.
