Awesome looking movie

Wow. I like the way that looked. The whole appearance of the robots with the glowing red eyes was rather matrixy, but the movie itself seems to have nothing to do with that kind of scifi trip.

I think the only word I understood in there was something to do with a cyborg...

BANANA! BANANA!

Looks like it might be fun. It comes out in early May so I'll let you know how it is.

EDIT: Late April that is

Here's the "about the flick" blurb, translated:

It is a world that has seen a history different from ours. Five decades or world war led to a world divided into two camps, the Great Asian Federation and the European Union. At the end of this battle, Asia reigned supreme, and the forces of East Asia ruled the entire Eurasian continent . . .

But what had they won? A wasteland of devastated humanity. Radiation, illness, and viral threats created by chemical, biological, and nuclear weaponry.

Has the human race attained this moment of peace only to die away quietly?

Africa and the Americas are having a big drumming festival out on the lawn behind the Dead concert. They couldn't make the war.

Either that or those red-eyed mechas killed everyone from those three continents.

From the body language and the all out atmosphere that is looking pretty kick ***.

A scientist invents a robot for pollution control. Seems harmless enough right? Well, the robot, BK-1 or the Black King, goes nuts and sets out to enslave mankind using a robot army. Yes, it's a little clich?, but you still gotta hate it when that happens. Well, the scientist's son somehow merges his body with that of a robot and becomes a super-powered android named Casshan. If it sounds crazy, it's because it is. He then takes on the robot armies with the help of his robot dog (stay with me) and his childhood friend, Luna.
Why does it always seem like Japanese film writers are completely cracked out? It seems like the word "plausible" isn't in their vocabulary... :scratch:

Hey, I'm not saying that westerners don't do it too... but Japan and China seem to take it to extreme lengths of implausability... and frequently, if not constantly. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, for example. What the hell was with the running up walls and fights while flying and dancing on tree limbs??? Completely whacked out events in an otherwise perfectly plausible film. I thought that really detracted from the film overall.
