Violent, Violent, Violent Anime
29 October 2001 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

First things first, this is not the greatest work of anime ever by any means. If you want to see the greatest anime ever (well, in my humble opinion) that title belongs to Ghost in the Shell.

True, Violence Jack is crudely animated and poorly scripted, but it is also a visceral assault on the senses. These animators have just poured their darkest fantasies onto a blank canvas and the product is Violence Jack. The most compelling aspect of this film is that you are shocked but riveted by its twisted reality.

The rape scenes are appalling and you can not believe the animators have got away with such a graphic depection of the act. You dismiss them as sick perverts, and perhaps they are, but at the same time you are rivited to the screen in much the same way that people slow down as they pass the scene of an accident. You want to see what chaos and retribution Jack will inflict on the characters responsible.

I guess what I'm trying to say is its easy to dismiss what at first glace seems poor, but the fact that this film pushes the boundries of taste and decency, much like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, or Scanners, will keep you bemused. This series of films became a cult classic in my house last year after we watched them on the Sci-Fi channel. The final film in particular is responsible for one of the greatest lines of dialogue of all time;
