Cute, but even a meagre eighty minutes is a tad long for this. Funny enough this was the most packed I’ve ever seen the local movie theatre.
Thirteenth watch of Japanese July. A brief synopsis of Akira. It's 1988 and Tokio is destroyed. It’s 2019 and Neo-Tokyo is awesome. Kaneda yells: “Tetsuo!” Tetsuo yells: “Kaneda!” *Explosion* Tetsuo yells: “Kaneda!!” Kaneda yells: “Tetsuo!!” Some more beautiful animation. *Explosion* Kaneda yells: “Tetsuo!!!” Tetsuo yells: “Kaneda!!!” MIND BATTLE. Bodily mutations, so many bodily mutations. “Kaneda…” “Tetsuo!” *EXPLOSIONS* “Tetsuooooooooooooo!” MIND BATTLE. More stellar animation, yet another explosion, another mind battle and some more explosions. “Kanedaaaaaaaaaaaaa!”
“Ass to ass”
The guy saying that line in this movie is the best ‘villain’ with less than three seconds of screen time in cinematic history. His fantasy is kind of hot though, although certainly not as it plays out in that particular scene - it gives me the shivers. Jennifer Connelly. Holy fucking shit. She’s absolutely, utterly, insanely gorgeous (and that whilst playing a junkie). Jared Leto doesn’t even have to show any acting skills to convince the viewer…
