2019. 31 years after being destroyed during World War 3, Tokyo (now 'Neo-Tokyo') has been rebuilt and is a thriving metropolis. Shotaro Kaneda is the leader of a biker gang. His friend Tetsuo is injured in an accident and taken to a top-secret government facility. He develops telekinetic powers but decides to use them for evil rather than good. He has the same powers as Akira, the force that destroyed Tokyo in 1988, and now it appears that history will repeat itself.Written by

You will not make heads or tails from the movie about a story, but it is a historic achievement and certainlt fun to watch. I love violence and Akira delivers.
The fact that some Hollywood producer has decided to reshoot it shows Hollywood's arrogance.For heaven's sake Hollywood FOAD to your grubby hands.
