Storyline

Mangchi is a young boy with few problems and an easy disposition. Living on a building in the middle of the sea, he flies around on his little flying bike looking for adventures and longs for the day when he's finally an adult. So, when a princess named Poplar is being chased by two fighter planes, he rescues her. Little does he know that he will be pulled away from the city he has lived all his life, and dragged by Poplar into an adventure smack dab in between two countries at war and the evil plans of Moonk, usurper to Poplar's throne, who seeks world domination.

Unusual & mildly interesting
17 October 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This was advertised as "Hammerboy" on Voom satellite service. I saw in in HD and it was absolutely beautiful from a film transfer perspective. This was my first Korean anime. It was heavily geared toward children. As a result, it had a bit of trouble holding my attention. Nonetheless, it was nicely drawn and animated. There were some jokes and plot points in there that wouldn't be made by anybody appealing to American parents. That, of course, is a compliment to the filmmakers who were trying to tell a story, not sell a doll to neo- conservatives in the Bible belt. On the whole, I do not recommend this film even though there were some nice things about it.
