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.

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.

A unique movie

This movie was pretty good.

The story seems to be well thought out. The way small flashbacks that are played out in the earlier parts of the movie are later elaborated and relevant was great. However, I still felt like I was missing important key facts by the end, to which I read a summary of the movie and it all started to click in. It helped me interpret some visuals that I was actually unsure of the meaning of. In the wiki I used, I learned that the subtitles didn't convey the full meaning of what was being said, so I am more understanding of this.

The visuals/CGI is a unique situation in this movie. This was filmed all on a green screen, and I was afraid that the early 2000s CGI was not going to hold well. To my surprise, even though it is nowhere near the CGI of today, it honestly was not too bad. I have seen way worse CGI in modern Toei toku shows. I did not like, however, how the scenes would jump from one filter to another without much reason. At first, the flashbacks were the only ones in greyscale, but then, the present was also in greyscale, but only with our hero. I think the idea that they wanted to show with the filters was the mood of the situation, but honestly, I don't think it worked too well.

The acting was honestly pretty good. Can't say much about it.

Honestly, if you like action movies and experimental films, this is a decent watch and you will like it. It was worth the watch just to see the vision of the director in his CGI experiment, but the story was pretty good as well.
