Casshern is based on a Japanese TV-series. In this movie, the viewer is transported into the future where the world has just seen a big war between an army from the East and an army from Europe. The East won, even though there are still rebellious factions that try to overthrow the government. The war has ravaged the world, and more than ever there is a need for peace and harmony. A scientist is conducting research into a new technology, that can rejuvante bodies and make mankind feel more alive again. The government is not interested in this technology, since they fear it could endanger their position, and the scientist is forced to work together with a sinister organization. As you can probably guess, something goes wrong and before you know it a group of all-powerful superhumans roam the planet, intent on destroying everything and everybody, so that they can rebuild the planet from the ground up.
Enter Casshern, the son of the scientist responsible for these problems. He had died during the war, but his body came back to life in the same way the superhumans did. He gets a special super-armor in order to fight the superhumans and battle commences, especially when he discovers that the superhumans are for some reason holding his mother hostage.

Casshern. One of the most Beautiful films I have ever seen, which makes it one of my favourites as well.

The Story is Brilliant. Originally a Manga (and anime), its quite interesting and full of action. Overall, at the end of the movie, its a story about Humanity ("Murderer. Feel my pain"), Life ("If we get a second chance at life, why live it to the full?") and forgivness ("We hurt others by our very existance. Thats just the way we live")

So Many Beautiful quotes from this movie.

I Love it. The end of the movie always brings me to tears. The acting is Brilliant. I think my favourite Character was the Neo Sapien overlord, I kind of loved all of the Neo Sapiens. The Music is Beautiful, fits very well, classical music plays throughout, its a great touch.

I rewatch this movie on the regular, and tell everyone I know and all of my friends to watch it.

I guess some people can't handle it, especially if you are squeamish.

Its Beautiful. The last scene is the best.

So this is may second time of watching Casshern, it was okay for a science fiction film. I think the story is trying to portray how humans hurt each other when they can't forgive and understand. Hence, the many wars fought are senseless and need to stop, so that life and peace can reign. I really think it's a little to much for people to enjoy, I mean there was a lot of action but the current environment was completely mess-up. It was at the end I realized there were no trees because of the pollution and toxic wastes. Again it was the music that helped this film be not so boring, therefore if you have not watched to film try it out.
