'Akira' is one epic sic-fi anime. The animation still impresses with it's grand sights, bright colors, and attention to detail. The experience is immersive right from the opening shot. This is hand-drawn perfection. The story has themes of corruption through gained power, repeating past tragedies, and seeking a higher purpose. It starts off strong, but requires more attention to comprehend in the second half. Some explanations are muddled. The wild action is enough to overshadow that. This is one cool flick that all anime and sic-fi fans should check out.

This film is a trip! The visual style and animation completely adds to the dark, evocative atmosphere this film creates. It's a bit confusing at times, since the plot is sometimes nonlinear and mystical, but the imagery presented here is powerful. One of the best anime films ever.

In my opinion the definitive anime classic. Better than Spirited Away I think.

This movie helped to break mainstream Japanese anime to the western world. Itís a classic, and an amazing piece of film in its own right. Be warned, however, the plot is confusing and difficult to follow - especially for someone watching the film for the first time. However, the action sequences and the "feel" of the film cannot be beat. Itís the perfect marriage of sci fi and action. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

This is one of the best anime movie of all time. Great plot and action. Animated violence with some nudity thrown in, you can't beat that!

This is the seminal anime classic - the one that proved that cartoons aren't just for kids with a very adult story and some truly amazing visual effects. The story is not the easiest to follow, but that's OK, you'll want to watch it again.
