For a mere fifteen million dollars, the filmmaker(s) managed to develop a film boasting more thrilling and well-staged action than many films at least ten times its budget. Despite being mostly well trodden ground, the script stays smart, with well developed characters easy to invest in and care about. The morality play present in the film is effective but veers towards convention too often, like everything else, to become a film with remembering on those merits alone. However, the (mostly) good cast, pretty solid script and great direction form film that's consistently good and often great, I don't see many people being disappointed with realistic expectations.
Was this the DC? I saw that and I really really enjoyed it. Nice small exposition.
It was, but I hadn't seen the theatrical and couldn't find it online, not that I looked for more than two minutes. What was different?
I've yet to watch this, I hear it's like Akira but not as good.
It's extremely similar to Akira in a couple ways, a lot of it reminded me of it. That's not a fair comparison, really. Akira's like, this epic masterpiece, and this is... not that, nor did it try to be really.
