Quotes

Dororo: At least tell me your name! If you don't I'll call you something weird and shout it out.
Hyakkimaru: If you ask, tell me yours first.
Dororo: A thief has no name. A name could get you arrested. Any thief with a name is just third-rate.
Hyakkimaru: So we're the same. I have no fixed name. Drifter, Hyakkimura, Dororo.
Dororo: "Dororo?"... Sounds perfect for a professional thief like me. All right, it's mine! So I'm Dororo, you're Hyakkimura.

Forget your Ring...
9 August 2007 | by grandmastersikSee all my reviews

...Dororo kicks arse and has much nicer, more natural scenery for its walkabouts.

Okay, so some SFX would be at place in an episode of Power Rangers, thus inevitably costing it a huge amount of would-be fans, but with its tongue-in-cheek tale to suit its SFX - in parts making their badness seem deliberate - who cares? Not all films are for everyone, but for those Dororo IS for, it satisfies totally!

Dororo follows a young Pinocchio-type man as he saunters Japan, killing demons to regain his lost body, and with it his humanity. Joining him on his quest is the troubled nameless thief he dubs "Dororo"; her own motives are unclear at first, but when revealed, aid the plot rather well.

Filled with action, slapstick antics and being the fruit of a script which can successfully carry a viewer on a high from start-to-finish, Dororo offers 2hours and 18 minutes that you won't want given back, instead, you'll gladly accept the exchange of time for watching this great flick.

Even though the film seems complete in itself, its story does insinuate that other adventures (i.e. "sequels") could very well stem from it.

I've seen that parts 2 and 3 are set to be made - for once, these will be sequels that I'll be looking forward to.
