Casshern キャシャーン (2004)


the great war destroyed the planet, leaving it affected by nuclear, polluted and diseased. a geneticist developed a technique called the "neo-cell", capable of regenerating human body parts. an incident erupted in his lab, unleashing a new race of mutant humans - the Shinzo Ningen (新造人間). their intention is to annihilate the humans n raise their new world. Casshern, the son of the geneticist, died n was reincarnated. the battle between Casshen n the Shinzo Ningen therefore began. if you're into criticizing "how fake" 3D backgrounds are, you probably should skip this movie. majority of the backgrounds n scenes are 3D made. personally, i don't mind, therefore the fights were fun !! pretty much game-like.
