Thanks to Drew for recommending this film to me!
Number of Times Seen – 1 (6 Feb 2016)
Brief Synopsis – In the not too distant future, a biker gang discover two unique kids that will change their lives along with the whole world
My Take on it – I have never been shy to express my dislike for Anime movies and try as hard as I can to stay away from them.
This is a movie I had heard about numerous times from friends and have even had it suggested to me that I try it, but I never had the inclination to do so.
Even now, I wasn’t too enthusiastic to watch it, but I still decided to give it a try.
I must say that watching it, I felt very distracted by the way the animation was done which made it even harder to focus on the plot.
The story itself seemed to be good, but I wasn’t blown away by the ideas here or the execution.
All in all, I once stand by my feeling that Anime just isn’t really for me despite being able to recognize that there must be something going on in Anime that just doesn’t click with me.
Bottom Line – Still not the biggest fan of anime and this was just a bit distracting to watch for me. Hard to even pinpoint what it was about this movie that didn’t click with me. The premise was interesting but I just wasn’t too thrilled by the execution.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The movie takes place in 2019 and depicts Neo-Tokyo creating a new Olympic stadium. Coincidentally, Tokyo is scheduled to host the 2020 Summer Olympics. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
