This is possibly the first Japanese movie I have seen that isn't anime and I was very happy with it. I really enjoyed the story that is basically a Japanese version of a Marvel superhero movie. The movie felt like an anime made into a live action film. It was really funny, there was plenty of action and drama and it had a solid story with a great twist.
The special effects and 3D graphics were fantastic and much better than I expected. I didn't think it looked tacky or fake. It is a high quality movie. The characters were really likable and the soundtrack really added to the movie.
For the parents out there, it had a bit of violence, a couple (2-3) of swear words and a couple of sexual references but overall it was very mild compared to most movies out today. It was refreshing to see such a clean movie that I would be happy for my kids (probably age 10+) to watch.
Overall it was very entertaining and I would highly recommend it to everyone.
