Outstanding Japanese Science Fiction Drama
12 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Science Fiction horror/action movie based on the 2011 TV series of the same name, which in turn is based on the anime series that first aired in 1968. Catch copy of the characters are "I want to be Human !".

No one knows when they were born, but three artificial life form that originated from one common cell, Ben, Bela, and Belo are shunned by the human society because of their gruesome appearances . But their hart is pure, and they've decided to use their immortality to rescue humanity. Outwardly they can shape shift to have human like appearance, and they look somewhat like a family with Bem ( Kazuya Kamenashi ) being the father, Bela ( Ann ) being the mother, and Belo ( Fuku Suzuki ) being the son.

Mysterious killing is occurring in the city. little do Bem, Bela, and Belo knows, a child who they've saved the life of long time ago, Tatsuhiko Ueno ( Mchitaka Tsutsui ) is the trigger for the occurrence. He became a scientist, and in effort to save his wife Sayuri's ( Arisa Mizuki ) life, uses a serum from a plant that was contaminated by Bem's blood. She comes back to life, but also turns into a monster that has traits like that of Bem. Greedy CEO of a pharmaceutical company Masaki Kagami ( Hashinosuke Nakamura ) is also after the secret of this serum, and attempts to kill the Ueno family to steal the invention. They eventually find each other along with detective Natsume ( Kazuki Kitamura ) who is friends with Bem, and battle of humanoid monsters ensues.

This series gets high marks for its original concept, and artistry. The movie sticks closely to the original anime down to the mood and details of the character. In the original anime and in this movie, Belo plays the main character of the story. Fuku Suzuki puts in great performance as Belo, and so does Kazuki Kitamura as detective Natsume. Bem, and Bela are not allowed to show too much emotion, but acting by Kazuya Kamenashi, and Ann was spot on as Bem and Bela.

This is perhaps the best science fiction movie from Japan since Space Battleship Yamato, and recommended for viewing by all Asian movie fans.
