Casshern is an action-packed sci-fi thriller that blends Japanimation and manga-inspired live action resulting in a film that is both visually stunning and thought-provoking.
It is late in the 21st century. After 50 years of devastating war the planet has been ravaged by chemical, biological and even nuclear weapons and the entire human race is dispirited and exhausted by half a century of war.
The only hope for long term survival lies with geneticist Dr. Azuma and his breakthrough 'neo-cell' treatment that can rejuvenate the body and regenerate humankind. But when his experiments go wrong, a race of mutant androids is unleashed and only Azuma's dead son, reincarnated as the legendary hero CASSHERN, has the power to lead the war against the super robots and save mankind.
Directed by Kazuaki Kiriya.
