In the distant future, war and peace walk side by side in the pseudo-utopian place called Jesus Town (formerly Jerusalem), ruled by a handsome, yet cruel seraphim named Girjev and his android companion, Mikhail, long for total peace. Sealed far from civilization a long time ago is an android, code named Hakaider. Since his memory is rusty, he does not know his true purpose. After his fight with Jesus Town bikers, Kaoru and her band of rebel find him. He goes insane yet again and starts to whip the rebels one by one, only to have them killed by more of Girjev's troops, all except Kaoru. Hakaider then regains his memory, thanks to Kaoru, whom he starts taking a liking to and promises to free Jesus Town from Girjev and Mikhail. Written by
This movie is a must see for any fan of "Tonkatsu" (Reflective to real life) style cinema as well as Science-fiction/action. Comparitively this movie is an unsung classic in "Tonkatsu" it has such compelling elements similar to work from Kurosawa's "Ran" and "Rashomon".As some would complain that this film is not a visual masterpiece, I would in turn ask them how much of it they have seen. There are very dynamic characters and excellent plot formation and culmination. The storyline is a very insightful view on humanity and socio-economic divisions and struggles therein. While touching these points and making an impact at doing so, the movie's elements of action and drama are of such quality that anyone can enjoy the film without struggling to get it's deeper meaning. Missing this film is an injustice to anyone who enjoys science-fiction, action, drama, and intriguing storyline. Enjoy this excellent film.
