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: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.

nah, what made CTHT such a lame movie was the ending were the girl jumps off the cliff and falls so, euhm realistic :grrr:Anakha1 said:*crams an EMP up Durf's nose and detonates it, frying his robotic brain*
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.
