I wonder how much better the film would rate if the English translation wasn't so bloody awful. Half my confusion stems from simultaneously hearing Japanese dialogue that didn't match the English subtitles at all.
Although it is quite slow moving I really liked the story and the emotional core of the script. This movie may be flashy when it comes to the effects and the action, but it is the movie's heart that will stay with you after the movie is done.
loved the films meaning, action scenes and visuals.
but i personally got put off how slow and boring it got at times.
if they found a way to make it more entertaining and less boring id really really love this film/
i have to admit tho its better than the old tv series.
so in other words its a good update to an old franchise.
A CGI mess. Casshern manages to be so convoluted, senseless, and over-CGI-ed that it took two viewings to convince myself that I had actually seen it with my full attention, and I wasn't missing the main point: choppy and terrible.
