The story takes place in 1999, the Year of Destiny, and the beginning of the end of the world. The future of the universe rests on one young man, Kamui Shiro, who must destroy either the Dragons of Earth or the Dragons of Heaven - two opposing armies. He alone must decide whether humanity should be destroyed to create a purified universe, or whether it should be protected to preserve civilization. Two oracles, the sisters Hinoto and Kanoe foresee the coming of the Dragons and predict opposite outcomes. Each sister gathers strength and ammunition to insure her own vision for the future. However, neither sister realizes that there is one man who has an even greater power than the Dragons, and that ultimately he will determine the fate of the earth. Which sister will prevail and how does Kamui fit into their struggle? The answer to this question will forever affect humanity. Written by
At the time of the film's production, the manga it was based on was less than half-finished, forcing the filmmakers to create an ending and attempt to compensate for incomplete character development. The television series X (2001) retells a more complete version of the manga's storyline, though it is also not entirely accurate to the source material. See more »
Don't you realize that this battle is meaningless? What do you Dragons of Earth hope to achieve?
It is not the Earth we wish to destroy. It is mankind. Men kill, they hate, and they devastate this planet. What reason, then, must they exist? What the Earth needs now is tranquility.
Perhaps you are right. But there are people who I need to protect! For them, and for those people who have died fighting for this Earth, I am unable to let you live!

The film starts very confusing. You get a small intro on each of the characters. Through these 'intro's' the threat is somewhat explained. You have two party's 'The dragons of the Earth' & 'The dragons of Heaven'. The movie chooses well between alignment. Tho the dragons of the earth are symboled as 'the bad guys' and heaven is good, the characters of both party's are real individuals (You could side up with both teams). I'd really liked the intelligence in the movie, nice fighting - scene's. Tho I can imagine that this movie isn't for everybody, if you like manga, story & drama... this really is one to watch!
