"It's a soldier's duty. You wouldn't understand."

To this day, 1988's Akira is worshipped as one of the best anime features in history. And, frankly, this reviewer has no comprehension as to why the film continually receives such praise. Scripted and directed by Katsuhiro Ôtomo who adapted his own manga series, Akira is a super-violent epic which borrows liberally (if unimaginative... read more

This film is an absolute masterpiece.

The animation is fantastic and it still impresses to this day, which is really saying something given that this film is fast approaching the 20th anniversary of its release.

In the opening scene we see Tokyo being erased of the map in a flash of brilliant light. Later we find that this was thought to be a result of nuclear activit... read more

This flick is one of my all-time favorite. The first time I saw it, I was about 15 years old and it completely blew me my mind. Indeed, I had never seen anything like this and I thought it was just fascinating (Eventually, I also bought the comic-books which I also highly recommend). Indeed, this animated movie was just so well done and it was definitely a milestone when it was made. The whole th... read more

The future kind of sucks. (307 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: After a devasting war, Tokyo is rebuilt as Neo Tokyo, futuristic biker punk gangs run the streets, and the city is about to be destroyed again, by Akira, a boy who with super powers, who died and just transfered his powers, to some one else. Year it takes place: 2019"

Film Journal (42 movies items)

"Very fun at times, though it does take pretentious, pseudo intellectual airs towards the end and the plot does meander quite a bit, both of which are two of the most detrimental flaws a film such as this one can possibly exhibit.
