Storyline

Waking inside a laboratory on an airship, a man recalls bullies from his childhood. A scientist, Estelle, greets him and tells him his name is Henry, she is his wife, and that he has been revived from an accident that left him amnesiac and mute. After she replaces a missing arm and leg with cybernetic prostheses, mercenaries led by the psychokinetic Akan raid the ship, claiming all of Estelle's research is Akan's corporate property. He kills Estelle's scientists before attempting to murder Henry, but Henry and Estelle flee in an escape pod, landing in Moscow. Estelle is abducted by the mercenaries, who try to kill Henry..

It's like driving a race car as fast as it will go... so fun you can't stop smiling
7 April 2016 | by wolfisgoodSee all my reviews

I went into this with no preconceived expectations. I saw the trailer, it looked interesting, I went.

I wasn't disappointed. Whether this is a commercial hit or a flop, it will be a cult film forever. It's an instant classic for no other reason than it's just so damn fun.

Your best bet to enjoy this movie is to see it as an experience and not as art. Don't ask questions about characters background or whine when they don't explain random biker chicks with samurai swords... it just doesn't matter. I eat ice cream because I like ice cream... I don't pick through it during dessert.
