Fear runs rampant throughout Tokyo with the revelation that demons in fact exist amongst us. Paranoia and the darker side of humanity boils onto the streets as people turn on one another, suspecting that anyone could in fact be a demon hiding in human clothing. Amidst the growing tensions, tragedy strikes Akira causing his mind to snap, retreating into his subconscious, allowing his Devilish alter-ego Amon to break free from Akira's cage of flesh and wreak havoc on both human and demons alike.

As a big fan of the classic 1972 TV series and the excellent 1982 OVA's, this 2000 entry in the series is very dull. Subpar animation, boring dialogue and storyline and awful framerate during the fighting scenes. Akira Fudou lacks any emotional presence compared to the previous outings. The final battle with the Devil within is absolutely awful, especially the framerate drop which makes it the more painful to watch. Obviously this movie tries to play the violence card, but even for fans of bloody anime, this one doesn't deliver at all. The only redeeming point is the solid character artwork and new visual facelift the series got, but as a fan of Go Nagai's original Devilman, this 45 minute boring bloodfest has no substance at all...
