Passable Hentai fare!!
22 March 2005 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

It has to be said that this first entry into the 'Violence Jack' saga is not the most well-animated Anime there is on offer (the animation in the other two episodes is much better)and it really is starting to show its age a bit, but you could certainly do a whole lot worse than watch this.

To begin with, there's certainly plenty of gore and typically sadistic Anime violence to keep the viewers happy.

I found the earlier version of Jack in this cartoon to be surprisingly quite fearsome. He looked pretty much like some giant, satanic 'Hell's Angel'. He was every inch the cold-blooded demonic killer you'd expect him to be with a name like 'Violence Jack'.

What I did find a little disappointing, though, was that the ending seemed to me to be somewhat unresolved.

Overall, okay if you're looking to kill some time.

Rating: a reasonable 5/10
