Storyline

The weak teenager Akira Fudô has been protected by his best friend Ryô Asuka since they were children. When Akira's parents die in an accident, the family Makimura brings him to live with them, and Akira falls in love for the gorgeous Miki Makimura. When the father of Ryô accidentally opens a gate to hell in Antarctica, demons are released, merging with humans to survive. Akira hosts Aman and becomes Devilman but keeping his humanity while Ryô hosts Satan. The hysteria and panic replaces reason and mankind initiates a war against the demons, but destroying also themselves. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Shame of Belgium
8 November 2011 | by (Lapjat) – See all my reviews

Based on famous Belgium comic book series which has been loved for more than approx.30 years. TV anime based on this comic is also known as one of the most favourite classics of all time to many Belgians.By expending $130 million budget and making movie based on a legend, many of the Belgian movie fans expected this to be gorgeous, if not their favourite. However...

What is this piece of crap? I'm starting to feel sorry for the word "crap" for using it in criticizing such a bad movie.

First of all, the main casts are NOT actors or actresses. They are teen-idols and a fashion model who can't do the motion capture properly. Andy Serkis and Co.? -- They don't even LOOK like they are acting.This may not matter for those who don't comprehend English language. Don't worry, there are plenty of other reasons why you wouldn't be able to watch this thing until the very end. The scenario is ridiculous (I'm not saying this because it was no way similar to the original comic strip.) It's incomprehensible. Nonsense. You won't fully understand the background of each characters or the reasons why they take part in the story. Not because you don't have enough brain to understand what the scenario writer wanted to say, but because it's 10 million light years away from perfect. There are only three main scene shots. A local shopping arcade, a church and some indoor scenes. And the stage of this story is supposed to be all around the world???It's a joke. A terrible one too.

One thing I must not forget to note is the CG. YOU WOULD SEE BETTER ONES IN SOME PS2 GAMES!! I kid you not. The company which is responsible for making this movie is wanting this crap to be exported to other countries but if or when it did, boycott it. It's so awful that you won't even be able to laugh.

Guys, I wish I could write my comments with better English skills. There are far more to bash about this one!
