Movie #94 - Akira

The Colonel: It is not a soldier's duty to make policy. I follow my orders.



I can't believe this film was made in 1988, the idea behind it is surreal and the animation is awesome.
This techno thriller was fantastically made with momentum (right from the start), bloody good violence, thought provoking and a fast paced story line - which is not bad considering its source is a 2000 page manga.

Kaneda's red bike is iconic. This is not just a brilliantly made anime, it's a Classic!

Hope they don't mess up the live-action remake.
