I must say i was skeptical about seeing Stands in the live-action but it was beyond awesome, Takashi Miike did an amazing job portraying every characters as well as their Stands.
The other thing my cousin and I worried about was rushing the intro and story of Yoshikage Kira, who honestly is one of the best villain in the anime.
I can gladly say without revealing too much that Part 1 only goes as far as the showdown between Josuke Higashikata (Crazy Diamond) and the brothers Keicho Nijimura (Bad Company) & Okuyasu Nijimura (The Hand).
The ending was the only thing that made me give a 9/10 as they changed something that does not make much sense as they skip a villain to introduce another one which had no motive to do what he did.
People were cheering like crazy at Fantasia 2017 Montreal and I for one cannot wait for Part 2.
