Summary: Set in a retro-futuristic alternate world where the entire planet is divided between two opposing alliances, “Casshern” is at once visually entertaining and dramatically profound. The earth is left diseased and polluted through a “great war.” The geneticist Dr. Azuma vies for support from the government for his “neo-cell” treatment which can rejuvenate the body and regenerate humankind. His appeals for funding is turned down by the government leaders who fear that the new technology will threaten their entrenched powers. Driven to complete his work by a desire to save the life of his beloved wife, Dr. Azuma accepts an offer from a sinister militaristic faction. However, Azuma’s “neo-cell” cloning experiment goes haywire after an accident, and a race of mutant humans (quasi-androids) is unleashed upon the world. Tetsuya, Azuma’s son, volunteers to be reborn as the bionic warrior Casshern in an attempt to save the world, and to clear the name of his father. Casshern valiantly sacrifices his own humanity in order to attain the powers needed to defeat mankind’s powerful enemies. Haunted by the memories of his slain mother and having to deal with the super robot that has absorbed his father’s consciousness, Casshern must put aside his own emotions in a desperate bid to save the human race.(Credits to D-addicts)
This movie used a lot of CGI and I mean a lot of CGI. But it made the movie very interesting because I’ve never seen a movie like this before. The action was pretty cool. It was story was awesome.
This is truly a great movie with a great message. Co-existing together because we only have one planet is truly powerful as is expressed by this movie. We destroyed the world and in turn destroy each other thinking that is the only way to live. Why fight when we all know that it’s just hurting us.
I love Japanese Live Action because they are able to make the movie have the same feel like the anime. I honestly have seen this movie a few times now. I just recently just watched it again and fell in love with it again.The actor’s and actresses we’re great. I really liked how the director made the couples love intertwine with the message of the movie. It was sad that the war split them apart but it was also the war that brought them back together.
To live together not as one individual but as a whole. This is a must watch for everyone.
